The Living Corpse Exhumed #1 – Review
Issue: Living Corpse Exhumed #1
Writers: Ken Haeser, Buz Hasson
Artists: Ken Haeser, Buz Hasson
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: 2011
“THE LIVING CORPSE rises from the grave in an all-new 6-issue mini-series! It’s hard enough to be The Living Corpse – the flies, the hunger for human brains, and the unending task of holding off the hordes of darkness from creeping into the world of the living… But when a Nosferatu suddenly moves into his graveyard, all hell breaks loose! And what will happen when The Living Corpse’s friend, Lilith, get’s caught in the middle? It’s a battle of the undead and only one will be left standing! (here’s a hint — the name of the book ain’t Nosferatu!)”
Artwork: 4.5 out of 5
Well eyelids I enjoyed having you as a part of my head until I saw the first 2 two page spreads, and then they were blown off! I love the style of Ken and Buz and I think in this issue it shows so well that you won’t know who is doing what. A perfect complement to one another. The colors were awesome as always, but a special treat was how the panels were broken up. At times you get this frames placed on the pages that don’t zoom in on anything, yet the boo-tifully break up the page. Awesome stuff.
Story: 4.0 out of 5
I don’t want to spoil anything but I have to say that this is a strong start out of the gate to make a change to a major player in the book. The writing was full of the humor I come to expect and was a great read overall. However I do have to point out that I thought some jokes did seem to have a little rust on them. Overall you get action, a great death for a classic villain and humor. This is a fun read.
Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
This book is back and ready to party, and guess what? You are on the guest list! Horror fans I know your picked this one up, everyone else you should give it a try. Buz and Ken bring to the table a great art style, a solid story, plenty of jokes and a great overall finished product. Plain and simple you can not lose with this one.
