The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
To coincide with the release of New Line’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, get ready for the debut of a frightening new series that will explore the mystery that surrounds Travis County and the horrific Hewitt family! From the demented minds of writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Majestic, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES) and artist Wesley Craig (Touch) comes a tale of unparalleled terror and unique insight into small-town America.
Wildstorm’s series contributed to the mythos by picking up one year after the film ended, effectively generating a sequel: Leatherface has one arm, Erin has been placed in a mental institution, the FBI have Sheriff Hoyt’s offices under investigation, and an uncle of Pepper (a victim from the film), one of the senior agents on the case, has the Hewitts in his sights. The storyline followed two new sets of characters, along with the Hewitts themselves: the team of FBI agents, led by the vengeful Agent Baines, and a TV news-crew, led by local anchor Kim Burns, eager for a new scoop on the murders in Fuller, Texas. The series also expanded the roles of some of the more minor characters from the films, such as the Tea Lady, Henrietta and Jedidiah. Whereas the films portray these characters as some of the more relatively harmless members of the family, the comics showed them as just as demented and depraved as Leatherface and Hoyt; in one scene, Henrietta and the Tea Lady rape a drugged FBI agent in an attempt to impregnate themselves, and in another Jedidiah kills an FBI agent (who has attempted to arrest his family) with a cleaver to the face. Wildstorm also introduced members of Leatherface’s extended family not present in either of the two films: Ezekiel “Zeke” Hewitt and Shiloh Hewitt. During the storyline, the characters discover that the other residents of Fuller know of the Hewitts’ activities and are complicit, living under a “code of silence” and not interfering. At one point, Kim Burns escapes the Hewitts’ “family dinner” and arrives at a local bar, only to be refused the use of the phone (“we don’t want no Hewitt trouble”) by the patrons before being dragged out by Leatherface himself. At the conclusion of the storyline, KIm crashes the Hewitts’ truck, sending Leatherface careening out the back, and escapes onto the highway and into the night, wielding Leatherface’s own chainsaw.
