  • “THIN #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Being beautiful is hard. The exercise, the dieting, the fashion, the skin care; it can be an all-consuming ritual that takes over a person life and dictates their day to day actions. But it’s worth it, right? At least, that’s what Doris thinks when she agrees to undergo a shady procedure to get the body of her dreams. Titled THIN, the newest release into the shadowy subgenre of body horror explores the dark underbelly of beauty and the lengths one woman will go to lose weight. A commentary on our society’s obsession with perfection while showing the delicate balance between food addiction and mental health, THIN is a multi-layered work that’s just as much horror as it is an examination of the demons inside all of us and those demons are hungry!

  • “SEVEN TO ETERNITY #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    High end fantasy has always had a warm home next to horror ever since H.P. Lovecraft birthed Cthulhu on the unexpected populace of post war 1930’s. While he may not be the first to combine giant monsters and the unforgiving cosmos, he is certainly not the last, the most recent addition being SEVEN TO ETERNITY. The newest work from writer Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, LOW), he has once again brought the infinite possibilities of star-traveled imagination to the pages of the four-paneled world. This time, he has focused on a world far from our eco-system where bizarre beasties and multi-legged creepies lurk at every corner and there is no escaping The God of Whispers. Evoking classic fantasy into a modern age, SEVEN TO ETERNITY starts with a bang and doesn’t let up.

  • “THE GREAT DIVIDE #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    While there are many ways for humanity to die out, if post-apocalyptic movies have anything to say, it’s most likely going to be from blowing holes in the back of each other’s heads. While THE GREAT DIVIDE agrees with this Mad Max sentiment of self-destruction, the newest comic from Dynamite Press has added a twist to traveler-in-a-desert genre: death by touch. In not so near future, death comes in the form of skin to skin contact, not only snuffing out the life of the victim, but trapping them in the body of their killer, like a split personality. A traditional story with an original premise, the first issue takes us deep into the life of one man as he explores the terrain of a land with no law and no touchies.

  • “BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    There is nothing more worth killing over than money and power. While some may argue that there is more to life than such petty things as arbitrarily assigned values to paper and metal, the families in BLACK MONDAY MURDERS might have some strongly worded arguments; especially when the demon Mammon is concerned. Image Comics highly-anticipated financial horror comic may seem like an odd addition to the growing pathos of horror work, it’s the addition of black magic to the already shady underworld of banking institutions that allows it to earn its place with its arcane brethren. Throw in a determined detective with his own ties to the occult and you got the noir twist for a book that’s already halfway to creating its own genre.

  • “WEIRD LOVE #13” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Love is weird enough as it is, what with the feelings and the touching and the general anxiety of being that close to another sack of skin and meat, but it’s even worse when it’s cursed! Heralding the thirteenth issue of the WEIRD LOVE genre re-prints, IDW has selected a collection of works all centered around love and curses. Whether it be black cats or spilling salt, you better believe these lovely ladies are avoiding any possibility of losing their men to the murky shadows of bad luck. WEIRD LOVE #13 has collected comics from long forgotten love tomes of the ‘50s-’60s and while perhaps some of the comics could have used a quick run through the color cleaners, its vintage vibe makes it a great addition to any classic horror lovers (and horrific lovers) collection.

    ,
