    “HOLY F*CK” (Comic Book Review)

    Nothing sells a work faster than religious controversy. Something about insulting the moral, right wing minds of conservative culture tickles the fans pink, especially when it’s so over-the-top that even the stiffest upper lip would crack a smile. From Garth “The Menace” Ennis’ PREACHER to Robert Kirkman’s BATTLE POPE, comics have never shied away from pushing the boundaries of good taste and HOLY F*CK is no exception as it follows the long tradition of mocking Christianity in comic books. Reading like a religious exploitation film brought to the four panel world, HOLY F*CK brings babes and bikes to God’s holy hand, creating a globe-trotting adventure to save the end of the world… that is if we ever get Jesus off of crack.

    “THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    THE TWILIGHT ZONE has been a staple of horror ever since its inception back in the late 1950’s. Influencing everyone from Iron Maiden to THE SIMPSONS to our very own Editor-in-Chief Chris Alexander, the show has catapulted itself as a go-to terror for anyone who craves a bit of the strange. And considering its long and sordid history, it’s no surprise that the seminal series would once again find its way into comic books. Launching a brand new series, THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1 brings back that old school vibe while updating itself for the modern era, eagerly inviting new readers to its pages.

    “LADY KILLER #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    If there is one thing that the 1950’s are best known for, it’s cold war paranoia. With every fire drill, potential Russian invasion and failed space race marking another notch in the Communist agenda, imagination ran wild with the possibility of foreign invasion. Mix this with Cuban political ties and rumored super-spies right under the suburban family’s nose, it was truly a time to be alive.

    “Garbage Pail Kids: Puketacular #1″ (Comic Book Review)

    With the recent influx of all things ’80s and ’90s flooding the entertainment marketplace, it would only be a matter of time before we saw the snot-smeared faces of the Garbage Pail Kids again. Part babies and part bodily functions, the GP Kids have been around in form or another since 1985. Now, thanks to IDW comics, we can experience them in full, comic book glory!

    “PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS” (Book Review)

    Even judged by the ridiculously high bar that Mercedes M. Yardley set and reset via a quick succession of gorgeous, perception-altering releases—BEAUTIFUL SORROWS (2012), APOCALYPTIC MONTESSA AND NUCLEAR LULU: A TALE OF ATOMIC LOVE (2013), NAMELESS: THE DARKNESS COMES (2014)—the rising “dark whimsy” author’s latest, PRETTY LITTLE DEAD GIRLS, serves up a particularly delectable, eccentric feast of inspiring, soul-walloping lyrical beauty in the form of a genuinely affecting outsider love story.

    “GONERS #3″ (Comic Book Review)

    With Image Comics’ newest horror endeavor, GONERS, readers are reminded that paranormal hunting can very much be a family friendly affair. Much like the Winchesters from SUPERNATURAL, the Latimer family is never one to shy away from an exorcism or chasing a monster to the ends of the world, offering a comic that is as highly adventurous as it is steeped in mythology. As issue three prepares to hit stands, we see the series really take flight, exploring a bit more of the history of the family while following the mis-adventures of their two youngest practitioners after the death of their parents. With its pop-inspired art style and fantastically timed scares (with the just the perfect amount of quips), GONERS will undoubtedly be the sleeper hit of the new year.

    “GRINDHOUSE: DOORS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT, VOLUME 2″ (Comic Review)

    Comic books and grindhouse films are practically family: with both having been accused of not only corrupting America’s youth but lowering the standards of entertainment as a whole, it would only be a matter of time before these long lost twins would once again cross paths. Enter Dark Horse’s new horror series GRINDHOUSE, an unapologetic kitsch work that bridges the gap between the titans while embracing the exploitative nature of the late 1970’s low budget horror phenomena. While perhaps the not first comic to take the path of “low-brow murder porn,” GRINDHOUSE is one of the few to have done it so well, with some of Dark Horses finest talent adding their own personal touches of the macabre.

    “BUSTER VOODOO” (Book Review)

    I’ve been itching to review this unique, provocative, haunted and heartbreaking horror novel since I devoured it in one round-trip flight, two long crazy months ago. Being busy as shit has kept me from doing so, and it kills me, because I’d like to flood you with the kind of detailed richness that this book deserves, and I’m afraid my overloading memory banks may not be up to the task.

    “RASPUTIN” #1 (Comic Review)

    Of all of the powerful men to have graced human history, none have been more esoteric and mysterious as Grigori Rasputin. Part mystic, part political advisor, all beard, Rasputin’s life and much questioned death has become the go-to story point for authors who wish to add a bit of dark villainy into their plot. Yet, despite his appearance in works such as HELLBOY and HELLBLAZER, he’s yet to tell his side of the story. Until now.

    “COLDER: THE BAD SEED #1″ (Comic Review)

    When COLDER first hit shelves in late 2012, no one quite knew what to expect. With its dimension-hopping protagonist, panoramic horror-scapes, and a story that explores the very depths of human insanity, the sleeper hit soon rose in the comic ranks and even managed to snatch itself a coveted Eisner nomination. With the work’s overwhelming success, the once limited series is now seeing its second story arc and bringing back with it all the gruesome madness that made it famous. THE BAD SEED picks up from where the previous arc ended and introduces a new villain almost immediately after the disposal of the old one, proving there is never respite when dealing with terminally insane.
