ICU had the chance to talk to creator of Grave Robbers: Welcome To Hell Hole - now funding on IndieGogo
Your campaign for Grave Robbers: Welcome to Hell Hole is now funding on IndieGogo. What is Grave Robbers about?
Grave Robbers is a story about three bounty hunters that use their unique powers to hunt strange, supernatural creatures for money. The story Welcome to Hell Hole is about the Grave Robbers following a bounty to a small mining town, only to find a demonic cult has taken root and may be doing a search of their own!
What inspired you to mix the western and horror genres?
I've always loved horror movies and westerns since my Dad used to pick up old VHS tapes from Blockbuster when I was a kid. But specifically for this book? Anything Sam Raimi. I love blood, guts, and gore. As far as Westerns, though, I'd have to say Tombstone and Once Upon a Time in the West. Throw in a little Cowboys From Hell from Pantera and you've got Grave Robbers!
What do you see as the future for Grave Robbers?
I would love to keep doing Grave Robbers. I have 10 or so issues already written and probably another 20-30 planned even after that! Like Stan Lee said, "You keep reading 'em, I'll keep writing 'em!"
