"Bubba Ho-Tep" Goes Intergalactic in Prequel Comic Series
It's up to Elvis to face off against the cosmic blood-suckers
This year has brought us and made us recall so many great stories related to horror. None, however, are quite as memorable as Don Coscarelli’s 2002 film Bubba Ho-Tep. The film tells the “real” story of what happened to Elvis Presley (Bruce Campbell), who is residing in an East Texas nursing home with U.S. President John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis). The two proceed to battle an ancient Egyptian mummy aptly named “Bubba Ho-Tep” to save the souls of other residents in the home.
Coming in March 2018, we find our hero, Elvis, in an intergalactic fight with some cosmic blood suckers. Who else would be better to safeguard the world? Under the direction of President Richard Nixon, nonetheless. Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood Suckers is a prequel comic series written by Lansdale and Joshua Jabcuga, and I personally cannot wait to see where it goes.[pullQuote-0]
