    “THE OTHER DEAD” (Comic Review)

    Animals have often been the harbingers of new disease. The Bubonic plague was credited to arriving on the back of rats, while the Bird Flu epidemic pretty much explains itself. With THE OTHER DEAD we are introduced to a brand of animal illness previously only seen in certain type of manipulative parasite: zombies. Instead of the shambling dead hoofing it with the humans, this particular series aims to explore the possibility of a four-legged terror threatening to destroy the known world.  Thick with blood and guts as it is with political and social commentary, THE OTHER DEAD heads in a new direction as it ties together human fear and frailty and its effect on the environment through the collective revolt of the world’s lesser evolved creatures.

    “BLOOD BROTHERS” #1 (Comic Review)

    There are many places for a pair of vampires to hide out. Some would choose the bright lights of Milan, New York, or Paris to blend in with the fashionable and insane, while others would be more inclined to retreat somewhere more sullen, a haunted bayou or dismal castle. But there are always exceptions, such as with best friends of a thousand years, Nick and Tree, who settle down in Las Vegas, a city of excess, money, and dangerous turns. Unfortunately, one of those turns just happens to have the two of them in mind.

    “HOAX HUNTERS: CASE FILES #1″ (Comic Review)

    The world is full of strange things. Bigfoot, aliens, ghosts, demons; the stuff of horror goes on and on. Thanks to the fascination of all things morbid, many television shows are taking advantage of humans’ natural fear of the unknown and turning a pretty hefty sum investigating claims of paranormal activity. But what if there was a show that debunked all that? A type of MYTH BUSTERS, but for things that go bump in the night?

    “DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE” (Video Game Review)

    Zombie games have exploded over the past few years. With such titles a LEFT 4 DEAD and  DEAD RISING leading the pack, the primarily PC platform company Techland has also jumped on-board the gore freight train with DEAD ISLAND and its current follow-up DEAD ISLAND: RIPTIDE. RIPTIDE follows the five main characters as they attempt to survive another zombie outbreak while scavenging for items on an infested tourist island. A blood-and-guts filled detour into an undead Hell, this first person, survival action game has received mixed reaction from both fans and critics, yet still manages to satisfy a hankering to stab and slash the walking dead.

    “THE WALKING DEAD BOARD GAME” (Review)

    THE WALKING DEAD has proved to not only be a media bonanza, but a merchandising boon as well. From t-shirts and toys to DVDs and, of course, comics, collectors have been shelling out hard-earned cash for a piece of zombie memorabilia. It’s perhaps thanks to the recent interest in all things undead that the series has spawned not one, but two WALKING DEAD survival board games. While ghoulish versions of classics like WALKING DEAD Monopoly and WALKING DEAD Risk are on the way, the former are more popular with the strategy gamers than the casual, Friday night crowd. The more popular of the two, THE WALKING DEAD board game based on the Image Comics title (versus the AMC show), finds the player forced to scrounge for food while attempting to survive the ever growing zombie-hordes. With the tag line “Can you walk among the dead?”, it definitely brings the point home as the board slowly fills up with flesh-eaters and dwindling hope of survival.

    “TEN GRAND” #1 (Comic Review)

    In the wide world of comics, Noir and Horror have sat down to drink more often than one would think. From John Constanine’s globe-trotting, mystical escapades to Cal McDonald’s ghoulish case files, paranormal mystery men have become a staple of the medium as much as superheroes and tragic origins. With the recent launch of TEN GRAND, we are once again reminded why the world seems endlessly fascinated with a dimly lit bar and a sob story. A work mixing striking visuals and strong writing, it joins Image Comics’ recent fascination for bizarre crime stories, most notably, CHIN MUSIC written by Steve Niles and FATALE from Ed Brubaker. Though it has yet to be seen if it will pick up as much steam as its predecessors, it can be safely assumed TEN GRAND might stick around for the long run.
