Meathaus Week on Vulture: Read a Complete Story by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca








The comics collective Meathaus was formed in 2000 by a group of School of Visual Arts students, and its members have already gone on to great success — drawing for titles like Fables, Demo, and Omega the Unknown. Members include Brandon Graham (King City), Ross Campbell (Water Baby), and Dash Shaw (who's profiled in this week's magazine for Bottomless Belly Button). So when Meathaus announced their first full-color anthology, we got pretty excited — so excited that we couldn't choose just one of the outstanding stories from this awesome book.

That's why we're declaring this week Meathaus Week on Vulture. We're printing three full stories from the anthology — one of the best comics of the year.

Today: "Afrodisiac Meets Dracula," a ridiculous seventies comics parody from Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca, creators of Street Angel.

Meathaus: S.O.S. will be published by Nerdcore in July.
