Others >> Man with the Screaming Brain ( Volume 1)
by Dark Horse B-movie megastar Bruce Campbell, star of Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, Bubba Ho-Tep, and The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., comes to comics with this adaptation of his upcoming feature film. Campbell co-wrote the film with David Goodman, as well as directing and starring in it. Working directly from Campbell's script, Hilary Barta (Alan Moore's Tomorrow Stories) and Rick Remender (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) present this "director's cut" version of the film before the film itself even hits the theaters. Man with the Screaming Brain tells the story of a wealthy American businessman determined to exploit the crippled economy of a former Soviet state now torn between communist roots and capitalist greed. Campbell's character hits on the wrong gypsy girl and lands in the grip of a mad scientist determined to get rich off a twisted brain-transplant scheme worthy of Dr. Frankenstein. This is the version of the script that Campbell wanted to shoot before budgetary constraints forced them to scale back his vision, that original vision is laid out here. Artists Hilary Barta and Rick Remender offer a darkly cartoony collaboration in a fast-paced, uncompromising horror romp.
