The Bowery, Lower Manhattan, 1980. The New York burlesque scene has faded away, replaced by strip joints, peep shows and porno palaces. One small club of indomitable performers – the Luxury Lounge - still holds out against the tide.
The art of burlesque is dying. For one person, it isn’t dying fast enough. As the bodies pile up, so do the suspects – could the killer be desperate club owner Mr Barnett? Cantankerous juggler The Amazing Ralph? Stale stand-up comic Martin Stevens?
A performer can die onstage a thousand times. Offstage, once is enough.
Deadly Burlesque is a one shot horror story inspired by the earliest of the first wave of eighties slasher movies. Written by Russell Hillman, art by Daniel Bell and letters by Sergio Calvet. 24 pages, full colour, £4.00.
Deadly Burlesque will be released in November at the Thought Bubble Comic Convention in Leeds, England, with online release to follow.
This is the first of two announcements this October from Freaktown Comics, so keep your eyes peeled for the next one and be sure to follow Freaktown Comics on Twitter and on Facebook.
