In 2001 Fantoma DVD released The Coffin Joe Trilogy boxed set, containing new DVD presentations of Mojica's films At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul, This Night I'll Possess Your Corpse, and Awakening of the Beast. As a bonus, each DVD contained a translated reprint of an issue of O Estranho Mundo de Zé do Caixão, never before available in English.
Though the Coffin Joe Fantoma box set went out of print earlier this year, it is still widely available on auction and collector's sites. Mojica has a new film, Embodiment of Evil, due out in 2008, so maybe the renewed interest in Coffin Joe will lead to greater availability.
Thanks again to Scott Standridge for lending me these great comics and for writing up today’s post on Coffin Joe. For those interested, Scott is the Fiction Editor for City Slab Magazine and you can read his latest article about the films of José Mojica Marins in the current issue.
