Von Bach: the Complete Graphic Novel
A downloadable Horror/Satire Comic
“Von Bach” is the story of an undead monster who sues a movie studio trying to make a horror movie about him.
Doctor Heinrich Von Bach was the nineteenth-century scientist resurrected from the dead by his own ungodly invention. At least that’s the story Hollywood told when they got hold of the gothic romance novel written about the good doctor. For a hundred years they’ve made as many films based on the bloody life and undeath of Von Bach.
Today, a major studio is finishing a big budget Von Bach movie. But suddenly, the real Von Bach returns to life in Hollywood, and he is going to teach the cast and crew the true meaning of “development hell.”
“Von Bach” is a satire that pokes fun at pop culture and society in general. Nonetheless, there is a powerful story about the search for meaning and the struggle for one’s own dignity. And of course, some genuine scares!
