Bio: The popularity of the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre film series and its main character, Leatherface led to several comic books based on the franchise. In 1991, Northstar Comics released a miniseries titled "Leatherface" which was a loose adaptation of Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III that ran for four issues. In 1995, Topps Comics released "Jason Vs. Leatherface", a three issue miniseries that had Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th fame moving in with Leatherface and his cannibalistic family.
After the success of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake film in 2003, New Line Cinema created their "House of Horror" licensing division which licensed the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise to Avatar Press for use in new comic book stories, the first of which was published in 2005. In 2006, Avatar Press lost the license to DC Comics imprint, Wildstorm who have since begun publishing new stories based on the franchise.
