Lucio, The Beyond

Eibon Press, along with Grindhouse Releasing, has released preview pages for their highly anticipated Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond #1. At 40 pages, full of insanity and gore, this adaptation of the ‘80s cult classic will get a prestigious printing and some special extras that comic book fans will absolutely devour.

During her first “incarnation” back in 1927, Liza Merrill discovered the Seven Dreaded Gateways to Hell. The battle against evil never ends as Liza will meet Emily and the painter, Schwiek. At the Seven Doors Hotel, cataclysmic events will soon lead Emily to her descent into hell.

Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond #1:

5) The History!

Two theatrical versions of The Beyond were released in America. Back in 1998, when Quentin Tarantino teamed up with Grindhouse Releasing, audiences were able to view Fulci’s original vision. At the drive-in theaters and on VHS, back in 1981, The Beyond was distributed under the alternate title, 7 Doors of Death.

4) The Music!
