Maarten Janssens' (3EyedBear) new horror-magazine site puts up a new papercraft model called the Army of Death: Soldier - in what I hope will be one of many more scary and grotesque paper models to crawl out of their lair ^^
Back in 2006 at a local comic-convention in Holland, Menno Kooistra toyed with the idea to bring horror back into comics. The Dutch comic-community got very excited and created the 96 pages fullcolour coffee-table-book Bloeddorst (Dutch meaning “Blood-Thirst”) from the ground up. It got critically acclaimed as a broad portfolio with the combination of acclaimed artists and fresh young, yet undiscovered talent and was successfully continued with an extensive tour throughout the nation, but the publisher didn’t want to continue the project after which it died slowly.
Now, Menno Kooistra (photo), Maarten Janssens and Nynke Landman, all three involved from day one, emptied their wallets wanting to reanimate Bloeddorst and just do it themselves. It’s an uncertain road ahead but certainly filled with buckets of blood!
