(...) FRIGHTFEAST IS LIKE GOING ON A COACH TOUR OF GLEEFUL SICKNESS WITH A BUNCH OF INTOXICATED CENOBITES (...)

When this comic arrived in the post for me to review, I hovered over the envelope and froze, sensing a putrifying evil presence within...Dare I open this unholy Pandora's Box (or rather, Pandora's envelope)? Of course I bloody did!...First thing to assault my eyes, was psychodelic carnage that is the front cover; a warning to the faint heart of just some of the twisted madness that lies within ..."SLEAZE,GORE...NOTHIN' MORE!...SIGHTS SO HORRIBLE, YOU'll HAVE FRIGHTMARES!". I tentatively opened the book and was immediately greeted with maggot-ridden dementia; the narrating character is introduced:huddled  by the bins of an alley, injecting substances into his rotten, pustule ridden flesh, recounting his past of the teacher who threw flaming shit on his face, and his cannibal parents who he blames for his own ghoulish behaviour... He confides that his drug-addled psychotic mind is so twisted, that his body has rejected it, and second brain has grown in his arse for the sole purpose of kicking himself in the head...the story then morphs into another nightmare scenario: is this a drug hallucination of the narrator's fevered mind, or is he awakening from a nightmare into a even darker reality ?...
The comic has now gone into the world of '70's exploitation horrors and '80's video nasties - the familiar terrain of the gorehound. A nazi scientist is conducting inhuman experiments on a tropical island somewhere; creating bloodthirsty zombies and hideous mutants to serve his twisted will. He send his thug subordinates to look for fresh 'samples' as he has almost exhausted his supply of playthings. On another part of the island a group of not very bright film makers and actors have arrived to make a movie, not realising the danger they are walking into... Well, you don't have to be a rocket scientist (or nazi one) to figure out what will happen when the scienist's creations develop a will of their own, and mutate in ways their creator could have ever imagined?
FRIGHTFEAST is like going on a coach tour of gleeful sickness with a bunch of intoxicated cenobites; You'll either be in heaven or in hell, depending on your tastes. For those of you who prefer complex, multi-layered stories, character development, high brow subtleties and the serious, atmospheric build up approach to horror, then this probably won't be for you. For those however who prefer to wade right in, enjoying all things splatter and the wantonly graphic, whose minds have been warped from many a late night orgy of shlocky, violent celluloid gorefest; then this will DEFINITELY be your cup of (bloody) tea. Me, I like both (depending on my mood) and to my mind, the comic can be enjoyed on the level of visual experience and pitch-black humor alone. At moments it's disturbing and the next knowingly OTT and absurd; giving a knowing wink to the genre fans it is made for. It's almosr like Allen's possessed, desensitised mind is not really concerned with a traditional plot, but rather exorcising itself onto the page, spewing up every gruesome influence that has crept it's way in there, mutating and adding to a collage of warped and savage creativity which certainly has a morbis fascination to it. Mark has edgy and interesting art style; pages are often montages which have a natural fluidity and dynamism to them, and great use of contrast and motion. There are references to the obscure Italian and Grindhouse horrors, to classic like The Thing, Cannibal Holocaust, I Drink Your Blood, Evil Dead and Hellraiser II, with the humour of early Peter Jackson (Bad Taste/BrainDead) in places. Plus there's a nice little 'reality check' and twist at the end.

FRIGHTFEAST #1 randomness....since issue 1 is long time gone I don't mind (while I still believe that ONLY PRINT IS REAL!) posting full panels on-line...


Tuesday, 29 May 2012

OK..we got gore&gore happy customers. We feel so proud&want to thank you everyone for your ongoing support! YOU RULE !!! For those who haven't seen our books yet...another (!) word of encouragement (...)Second read I realized you are crazier than crazy. Haha! Awesome comic! There is a lot of word playing I missed 1st read. Like it would be cool if you made a video, put on a mask and read it in your own words, using different character vocals. Think that would be really insane.
Totally cool how it ended with the back cover being the last page. Don't think I saw anything like that before.
(...)

32 pages, printed on glossy 300/150 grams (!!!)paper full of sheer madness! Grab your copy while you can !!!!

Review from The Tomb Magazine




We recently came across this interesting article about the booming bicycle culture in Copenhagen...NO!...Something isn't right...wait a sec.. I know ! Lets talk FRIGHTFEAST# 1!

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your Cannible Corpse or Cattle Decapitation cd cover had a comic book? Well this is it. The artwork is nothing shy or GORE-geous from page to page. Bloody bits here, scary monsters there it’s everything disturbing wrapped into a small little package for your eye to devour, or crawl out of your head and leave because you tortured them with these gruesome images. The art is not a let down.

Story: 2.0 out of 5
This is what stinks about this so-called gig, not being able to hype something up. Talking with the talent on this one though, they knew that they story was lacking so I don’t feel super bad. There really was not full consistent story here. You might have a few panels that work together, but other than that I was kinda let down. I was hoping for it to be as reader appealing as it was visually appealing.

Dying Breath: 2.5 out of 5
So nice looking pages couldn’t save this one, so I think it’s safe to say middle of the road is a good score. The fact that a cohesive story was lacking really sucked, because I would have liked to see this artwork come more to life with some good dialogue. However the artwork is very strong and if I was looking for an artist for my death metal cd cover, I know exactly who I would call.

FRIGHTFEAST 2 ???...SO FAR SO GOOD!!!

"...Haha yeah the flow of FF is delirious, sleaze, splatter MADNESS!!! I love it MArk, pure and simple..."

"Got the second issue a few days ago. Pretty sick and twisted Mark. Love it."

"Just got my copy of Mark K Allen's FRIGHTFEAST #2 in the post! It's wonderfully twisted & hallucinatory; chock full of comix so gruesome they make the Black Dahlia crime scene photos look like a day at Disneyland! Bravo! :) "

"... fuckin-goddamn-hell brother I fuckin LOVE the 2nd issue!!!! It's ten times more depraved, sleazy, and just plain awesome than the first and thats raising the bar high as the first was a gut bomb of gore haha! It really seems that the art was improved and things flow a bit better even though it still is a mish mash of insanity but thats a fuckin good thing!! I think the best part about FF is the almost nightmarish dream like quality of the story line, it's almost like a splatter version of a David Lynch film. "


" The first issue is the Finest piece of underground artwork and story I have read since the early 80's, late 70's. I highly endorse Mark's comics and suggest everyone pick them up!!! "


" I got your comic yesterday, and just read it! I'm still shaking from it, and have poured myself a stiff Brandy Ha ha!
The gory art is really nice; I love the montage pages."
