"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Horror site Shock Till You Drop has revealed the Comic-Con International teaser poster for Relativity Media’s long-brewing reboot of The Crow, illustrated by the comic’s creator James O’Barr.
Although project has had a bumpy road, losing its director, writer and star, it appears back on track with confirmation earlier this month that director F. Javier Gutierrez and actor Luke Evans are locked in, with O’Barr serving as creative consultant.
“It’s one of those books,” the artist tells the website. “The book’s been in print since ’89, so it’s getting close to 30 years. I thought all of my fans will grow old with me and that will be the end of it. But no, it gets passed down generation to generation. It’s still, to this day, fully 60 percent of my core audience is 16-year-old goth girls and I’m like, ‘You weren’t even born when it came out, how do you know about it?’ And they’re boyfriend suggested it to them or their dad introduced it to them. A second generation is affected by it.”
