Shock, Awe and Rob Zombie Return to Comics

Rob Zombie explores the gruesome world of fame and fortune with Baron Von Shock.

Berkeley, CA – 15 March 2010 – Is there
anything ROB ZOMBIE can’t do? From music to television to movies, Zombie
has proven himself to be a boundary-jumping entertainment juggernaut.
In May, he returns to conquer comics with ROB ZOMBIE PRESENTS: WHATEVER
HAPPENED TO BARON VON SHOCK? Zombie has concocted a delightfully
depressing tale about the seduction of celebrity culture and its pitfalls. BARON
published by Image Comics.
"This comic venture is very, very different in tone
for me. Instead of a crazy over-the-top monster-fest like El
Superbeasto, I wanted to create something that works more on a slice of
life human level." states Zombie, "After El Superbeasto became a movie, I
felt I had taken that style as far as I could. So, I really needed
Baron Von Shock to be something fresh in writing and in art."
"After publishing THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL
SUPERBEASTO, we jumped at the chance to work with Rob again on BARON VON
SHOCK," says Image Publisher Eric Stephenson. "Baron Von Shock is
darkly humorous, thrilling and uncompromising – everything fans expect a
Rob Zombie story to be."
In BARON VON SHOCK, Rob Zombie returns to
comics with a dark dramedy describing the fantastic rise and spiraling
decent of celebrity. Being in the right place at the right time isn’t
always a good thing, as Leon Stokes aka Baron Von Shock finds out first
hand. His sudden rise to fame as a local television horror host meets with
unexpected results. BARON VON SHOCK proves to be a roller coaster of
emotion that only Rob Zombie can deliver.
BARON VON SHOCK #1 (MAR100391), a 32-page full
color comic book for $3.99, will be in stores May 26, 2010. Also
