The Last Comic Book on the Left is returning with a new volume and Screen Rant has an exclusive look at an amazing new cover from artist Bayard Morse.
With the launch of The Last Comic Book on the Left’s first issue, the new horror anthology is already getting ready to make a return this fall. Screen Rant has an exclusive look at second volume’s cover from artist Bayard Morse.
Curating this exciting new book is Marcus Parks, Henry Zebrowski, and Ben Kissel, the creatives behind The Last Podcast on the Left. The podcast covers a whole host of dark subjects such as serial killers, UFOs and other matters not for the faint of heart. The team may have a background in podcasting, but just last year they partnered with DC Comics to create Soul Plumber, a dark comedy series for the DC Horror line. In late 2021, the Last Podcast crew announced they would be creating their own comic book series in the spirit of old-school horror anthologies like Tales from the Crypt. With the first volume in the books, the team is ready to move on with a new collection of mad tales that promise to terrify and entertain.
Working once again with Z2 Comics, Parks, Zebrowski and Kissel will bring The Last Comic Book on the Left Volume 2 to life with a bevy of talented comic professionals. The creators listed for the anthology includes James Tynion IV, Rick Veitch, Bob Fingerman, Ian McGinty, Tom Neely, Lonnie Nadler, Brandon Montclare, Butch Mapa, Masa Minoura, Jensine Eckwall, Tyler Boss, Eliot Rahal, Logan Faerber, and Bayard Morse . The latest release of The Last Comic Book on the Left will feature more humorously macabre such that should please any fans of the podcast that spawned this anthology. With stories about Bigfoot and the Manson Family, listeners of The Last Podcast on the Left will have the perfect comic book to compliment the out-there stylings of Henry Zebrowski, Ben Kissel, and Marcus Parks. With such a stacked cast of talent, the newest volume of The Last Comic Book on the Left promises to be a great addition to the landscape of comic book horror anthologies. Screen Rant is excited to reveal Bayard Morse’s variant cover for the second volume of The Last Comic Book on the Left, which you can see below.
Horror anthologies are one of the oldest genres in comic books. Despite being out of the game for decades, the publisher EC Comics carved out its own place in comic history with titles like The Vault of Horror, The Haunting of Fear, and of course Tales from the Crypt. These comics have been seeing a resurgence in popularity lately, as evidenced by the sheer amount of Tales From the Crypt fanart that’s popped up recently. The last few years have seen an inflated interest in horror titles and anthologies have become a great way of showcasing some truly creative storytellers. After cutting their teeth with Soul Plumberthe Last Podcast team seems to be bringing the big guns with their comic-based spinoff.
All of it adds up to a comic anthology that should get horror fans excited. Still, those fans are going to have to wait until this fall to get their hands on the next volume of The Last Comic Book on the Leftespecially if they want that awesome Bayard Morse cover.
