Support Comic Writer Terry Parr’s “Revenge of the Creeping Dread” – Proceeds to Cover COVID Medical Bills

Tuesday, April 20, 2021 | News

Crossovers seem like a dime a dozen in comic books, but when two indie comics unite, you should take notice! Terry Parr’s radical original series Aerobicide: The Extreme Ninja Workout is teaming up with Ringo Nominated Drew Edwards’ successful Halloween Man spin-off Lucy Chaplin Science Starlet! And they’re bringing a horde of punk rock zombies with them.

In the age of Covid-19, it seems like almost all news is bad news. Everybody knows the last year has been filled with unprecedented challenges. It felt like Covid-19 changed the world overnight, and we all were just in a rush to keep up with those changes. Some of us were hit harder than others. 

Like so many, Terry Parr was hit with high medical bills after contracting Covid-19. Thankfully a solution presented itself in the form of an indie comics crossover between Edwards’ Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet and Terry’s Aerobicide. Based on a story originating from Edwards and Parr, a talented creative team has been gathered to bring this tale to life. This comic has it all! Bodacious babes, pop culture references, gallows humor, and of course PUNK ROCK ZOMBIES! Best of all, proceeds from this crowdfund will be going to help the Parr family cover Terry’s medical bills. 

Edwards says of Parr, “I’ve been proud to call Terry a friend and creative partner for the better part of two decades. He is extremely talented, imaginative, and a wizard with a pencil. He is like a brother to me. So, of course, when he got sick, I knew I had to help him.” 

The team also includes Brian J. Crowley (Hamster Rage) on pencils and inks and Wesley Wong (Marvel Masterworks) on Colors. All wrapped up with a brand new cover from Cal Slayton (Dead @17).

Aside from being for a good cause, this crossover aims to be – above all – a good time. Following our two leading ladies as they get pulled inside REVENGE OF THE CREEPING DREAD, an 80s horror flick with all that entails. Together, Sheri and Lucy must fight to survive hordes of the undead while trying to find a way out of the movie and back to their own worlds.

This comic is crammed with heart, horror, and the kinds of things both comic book and horror fans love. To learn more and back the crowdfund check out the Indiegogo page.
