Ahhhhhhh on the tip of my tongue but I can’t place it. I think it’s a mainland one (or possibly shot in Taiwan) but drawing a blank here
Hey all! Hopefully by now you have picked up Dark Horse’s Grindhouse #7 with my pin-up poster (GO BUY ONE FOR YOUR MOMMA BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES). y’know, this guy here -
as promised, here is the who’s who or what’s what behind this picture. The idea was to do a giant homage to Shaw Bros. films, and while my likeness game is maaaaaybe at 70% most days (and on deadline way less), here is who is based on who, or at the very least the weapon reference.
Central 2 characters
The central hero and heroine are based on the late great Alexander Fu Sheng (Chinatown Kid, 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, Brave Archer series) and a lady who I consider my personal queen of kung-fu cinema (all respect angela mao!), Kara Hui (My Young Auntie, Challenge Of The Masters, Wuxia).
Left column top to bottom -
The fighters on the left are loosely based top to bottom off of Gordon Liu (particularly his performance as San Te in The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin), Ku Feng directly from Avenging Eagle, Ti Lung, and a hodge podge of the 5 Deadly Venoms masks.
The characters on the right -
Lo Lieh’s performance as Pai Mei in Fist of White Lotus.
Below him is a character wielding a Mermaid’s Tail, which was to my knowledge only ever used in Ten Tigers From Kwangtung (GIFSET here http://tabletopfetus.tumblr.com/post/79260073750/gutsanduppercuts-the-first-time-i-saw-this-get)
and finally, the last 2 are inspired by the Flying Guillotine (used the Carter Wong led Fatal Flying Guillotine for reference a bit here) , and the favorite Sam Seed (Beggar Su) portrayed by the legendary Simon Yuen.
Thanks folks, don’t forget to buy a copy and come back the next time the POISON CLAN ROCKS THE WORLD
Hey more comic news from your pal Rusty! This is the cover for the upcoming The Dead #3 - check out their kickstarter here - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jamesmaddox/the-dead-an-indie-horror-comic
My dude Rusty Shackles in this week’s Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight comic by Alex De Campi. My friends are awesome!
"SHAOLIN ROMEO/WUTANG JULIET" - this image by your pal Rusty is in tomorrow’s Grindhouse Doors Open At Midnight #7 which is available digital now and on shelves tomorrow!
Had a ton of fun doing this as writer Alex Di Campi and the Dark Horse crew pretty much gave me full creative reign on this one. From pitch to uploading to their FTP it was “rad, keep going!” the whole way through which was pretty damn fab. I wanted to do something that paid homage to numerous Shaw Bros films so I gotta thank them for that chance, as well as Tony Barry and the Super-Fly Comics crew for initiating me talking to Alex!
Dig it, and grab the comic!
