Graphically and novelly speaking — and speaking of graphic novels — writer Brian Pulido is sort of like a landscape painter… of underworlds full of stabby little knaves and puffy black clouds. I first met him while we were both serving as judges for a zombie beauty pageant at the 2009 Phoenix Comicon. At that point, he’d already had a successful career in comics with his publishing company, Chaos!

Most recently, after writing Lady Death stories for different publishers over the past several years, Pulido announced he’s reacquired total control over Lady Death, and will publish the first Pulido-penned and Pulido-published Lady Death story in more than thirteen years, a 48-page graphic novel titled Chaos Rules #1, under the banner of Coffin Comics (of which his wife, Francisca Pulido, is president). The project, Pulido says, is finished, but hell awaits funds for production costs. That’s where his kick-ass Kickstarter launch party at Jesse James Comics in Glendale, AZ on Feb. 4 comes in. From 6 to 8 p.m., people can mingle with Brian and Francisca Pulido and get items signed, take photos with cosplayer Freddie Nova as Lady Death, make pledges on-site at computer stations, enjoy refreshments and eat cake. The first 100 attendees will also receive a cool commemorative Lady Death gift. We recently caught up with Pulido to talk about the appeal of Lady Death, the new graphic novel, and crazy Kickstarter rewards like a one-off edition with a $6,000 diamond embedded in the cover.
