Kevin Glover introduced us to his comic series that reimagines the essence of childhood and heroism with a Transylvanian twist. Titled “Supered-up Monster Kids,” the series brings to life four extraordinary school-age characters – Draculad, Frankenteen, Zomboy, and Mummy’s Girl. These aren’t your typical kids; each boasts a unique monster power that they use to protect their town from evil. Glover’s work is reminiscent of “Teen Titans,” set against a backdrop of gothic charm and monstrous mystery. Each 16-page issue promises a stand-alone, action-packed story filled with family-friendly color and excitement.
In a more adult-oriented narrative, Glover discussed his six-part mini-series “Lady Frankenstein and the Mummy’s Brain.” Horror enthusiasts are treated to a thrilling tale of Dr. Victoria Banning, a once-disgraced neurosurgeon who uncovers her link to a dark, ancestral past while assisting in the resurrection of Kahotep, a revered high priest to the Pharaohs. This full-color series spans the globe and delves into a world of discovery, danger, and deceit, all while enchanting readers with its retro aesthetics, including aged paper and muted colors. It’s described as a creepy classic that’s sure to send shivers down your spine!
For those with a penchant for horror laced with humor, Glover’s “Fractured Scary Tales” is a must-read. The series is a unique anthology that blends scary parodies of classic movies and TV shows with an ironic twist, drawing comparisons to “Robot Chicken” and “Tales from the Crypt.” Each 40-page comic is packed with tales that will make you laugh and cringe, featuring work from talented artists worldwide. Though rated PG for Pretty Gruesome, it’s noted that some content might be too intense for all readers, and cover variations may occur.
Apart from his comic creations, Glover also shared insights into his acting career, notably his role in the film “Syngenor.” He portrayed the monster in this high-tech horror, where a prototype creature known as Syngenor breaks free, leading to a deadly confrontation between more emerging monsters and the humans of Norton Cyberdyne. The film is a testament to Glover’s range and ability to bring the fantastical and frightening to life.
