The Last Zombie: Neverland #1 – Review

Issue: The Last Zombie: Neverland #1
Writer: Brian Keene
Artists: Fred Perry
Publisher: Antarctic Press
Release Date: Feb 2012
Price: $3.99

“Lost somewhere between Missouri and Iowa (after surviving the events of The Last Zombie: Inferno), the team stops to repair their vehicles and scavenge supplies. But they soon learn that they aren’t the only scavengers in town when a horde of ravenous, swarming rats attack the convoy!”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Chapter 3 is underway of this fantastic series from Antarctic Press. Following the events of Inferno, the team is now on the other side of the fire and exploring the terrain. Fred Perry was on the art duties for this issue and he just killed it. I absolutely love his style. Typically you see it on his other titles to be more up beat and cartoony, so it was a real treat to see him take on something as serious as this. His characters look great, and the way he depicted the whole scene with Doc Russo and Private Johnson was hilariously horrifying, especially when the rats showed up. Keene is still crafting one awesome story, and this arc is shaping up to be the best yet. I love how we get the idea of what is in the house, but are never shown what is there. The dialogue and pacing are perfect and I am so on board for more. I love this series, and I can not wait for

Vegetable Wars #4.1 – Review

Issue: Vegetable Wars #4.1
Peter Caton
Greg Hiatt
Publisher: Moon Comics
Release Date:
Jan 2012
Pages: 24

“Down the quick and narrow. A place of darkness and death exists that is full of bloody bones and of marrow. In this dark and lonely place, live two men. Two men, alive, fighting for freedom amidst the sea of green tangles and roaring fires. Together, these men wade through the endless seas of green vine. Strangling. Tangling. Never finding a moment to unwind. The wicked vines wrap themselves around all who dare to raise arms against the vast vegetable army. The mad, mad scientist. Still, these free men, march on. Armed with a hoe. With a garbage can shield. And some mean weed whackers, Diomedes Zen and Odysseus Amadeus fight on. Raging through the blood. The pulp. Through the countless seeds of death and destruction. Everything is against these two men. Everything pushes them to the brink of oblivion. Yet, these two warriors fight on. For freedom! For justice! For hot women in chains everywhere! These warriors rage on!”

What do a tomato holding a woman captive, a vigilante with a garden hoe and an alien invasion have in common? Why they can all be found in issue #4.1 of The Vegetable Wars of course. While past issues of this series have taken some time to read, I was shocked that within 15 minutes I was already half way through the issue. However that was just a trick Caton was playing on me because once I got to that point it took another 30 for me to finish the issue. In terms of story content I can not stress more that you are paying for an hours worth of reading with these issues. No other comic book that has 24 pages can offer that. This issue takes a turn and focuses on the hero Zen as he begins to take back Town from the evil vegetables. Is it bad to admit I was saddened to see a tomato die? Hiatt once again brings his A game to the pages, and I think he has slightly adjusted his style. No matter how I look at it this book was GORE-Geous from start to finish. Like in other issues of this series there is a back up story, this time about Aliens. It was jaw dropping. Caton could write a story about how a turtle and hawk who go to see Riverdance and it would be amazing. this tandem delivers on every single issue of this series and like before I can not wait for me. Easily one of my favorite books EVER.

No Gods TPB – Review

Issue: No Gods TPB
Writer: Dustin Carson
Artist: Armando Abeleda
Release Date: 2008
Price: $20.00

“Collecting all six issues of the limited series, No Gods, by Dustin Carson and Armando Abeleda. A fourteen-year-old boy thinks he is a clone of Jesus Christ sent to destroy all of Earth’s superheroes.”

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I will start of by letting you all know that this book could be looked at two different ways, and because of that I did lower the score a little bit and it still gets a 4 out of 5. The first way to look at this series is in the first half you get 2 stories that do more to explain the world in which this takes place, but then in the second half it is strictly based on the main character. While the stories that show off the world are fantastic, I didn’t see how they really helped in the overall storytelling. Now that I got that out-of-the-way, I LOVED this book. The artwork was solid throughout, and I liked how Abeleda didn’t seem to shy away from the more adult subject matter. Carson crafts what I would describe a more adult take on Super Hero Horror Drama. I know that is a mouthful, but it really does sum up everything that is in this book. You have horror elements at the beginning when the world is being described, but then you move into the world of the heroes and the main character. I loved the dialogue, I loved how the heroes were portrayed and overall I loved this book. I can’t say this would be for everyone, I think people who like The Boys would really enjoy this one.

House of the Wolfman #1 – Review

Issue: House of the Wolfman #1
Writer: David Gruba
Artist: Rene Castellano
Publisher: Instant Press Comics
Price: $3.00

“Home repairs can be scary, especially with a Wolfman in charge.”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
OMG!!! OMG!!! SPOILER ALERT….. There is a MUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t even start breaking down this issue without starting by saying it is hilarious. If you didn’t read my review of The Bride of Wolfman, then you are not in the know of how much anticipation I when it came to reading this issue. Unlike it’s predecessor, this book is one complete story from start to finish! The art by Castellano fits so well with the story. He has a great grasp on how to really capture the comedy bits, and still nail the semi serious scenes. A good way to look at this is imagine your favorite comic strip is a TV show, it’s short but delivers daily. Now imagine what that strip would have to do to become a movie, being more drawn out but still delivering the comedy a consistent basis and now  you have the House of Wolfman. Gruba delivers on the dialogue, just as well as Rene does on the art. They are a comic book comedy tandem to be reckoned with, they just need to get more issues out! I love this book, I love this cast and the only thing I want more of is the Mummy! A MUST buy for fans of anything horror who like to laugh.

Dead of Winter: A Comic Anthology – Review

Issue: Dead of Winter: A Comic Anthology
Creators: Various Creators
Release Date: March 2012
Price: $6.00

“Dead of Winter is a Comic Anthology in which artists and writers tell a simple story about winter. Whether it’s bleak, horrific or unexplainable.”

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Did you ever wonder how you can shiver when it is cold outsid and you can shiver when you are scared? Well Dave Scheidt sure did, and I think that is why he mixed the two to bring us this great horror anthology. The collection of creators on this book is above and beyond what you should be paying $6 for. From styles that border the very playful, to highly detailed masterpieces this book really has it all. Just in terms of art some of my favorite shorts were “Perfect Angel”, “Safehouse” and “The White Blanket”. The stories all did a great job of using the Winter theme and not overlapping on each other in terms of topics. Ranging from children playing in the snow, to ghosts getting revenge, a lot of sub genres are covered here. I really enjoyed the writing on “Safehouse”, “The Pond” and “Untitled”. Overall I loved this book. I loved what it brought to the table in terms of amazing artists and writers, and I can not wait for more. At $6 this book is down right theft against Dr. Worm Comics. Go to the website below and buy a copy now, you will not be disappointed,

From The Tomb Magazine Comic Book Reviews Comic Book Reviews for From the Tomb Magazine Z-Girl & the 4 Tigers #1 – Review

Issue: Z-Girl & the 4 Tigers #1
Writer: Jeff Marsick
Artist: Kirk Manley
Letters: Kirk Manley
Colors: Euan Mactavish
Publisher: Studio Z
Release Date: 2011
Pages: 36
Price: $4.00

“This is the first issue in the five-issue story arc, “ODYSSEY”. The mission for Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers was straightforward: battle gun-toting apes at the temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, prevent the emergence of the wrathful god, Shiva, and save a pregnant hostage. But the ancient scroll they find means this is just the beginning of something greater, a journey of discovery of who Z-Girl is and what part she is to play in the prophesied zombie apocalypse.”

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Sadly it has been a while since I was treated to a Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers issue and man did I miss it. After getting past the second page I was reminded of how much I really enjoyed Issue #0. This issue jumps into the start of a 5 issue arc, and art-wise it just nails it on page 1. The character designs are great from panel to panel, and the colors just make my eyes melt with joy. Page to page this issue is GORE-Geous, and then at the end it is followed up with some jaw dropping pin-ups. I always enjoy when someone can take a horror theme and place it into different genres. If you ask me this one borders more of a B.P.R.D. style of action team where they are monsters who fight monsters. The pacing is great in this issue, because it hits you in the face, then backs away to make sure you are okay and then BAM it hits you again. It wants your attention and you better believe it will get it. After reading this issue I can easily say fans of DC’s Frankenstein series and Dark Horse’s Hellboy lines should be reading this, but I recommend that all horror fans give it a try. It is a great story, that I can not wait to continue reading. Good thing I have issue #2 sitting here waiting for me.

“What if you could wish revenge on everyone who makes your life hell, and someone (or something) would do the dirty work for you?

When bullied Deacon learns the dark past of his small town Texas high school, he discovers a vengeful ritual used to wreak havoc on his enemies – like the school’s all-star quarterback.
But when Deacon wakes up covered in someone else’s blood, he realizes that the ritual was no childish game. And with every passing day the lines blur between the payback he envisioned and the revenge he’s committing.”

Simple Simon, Your makin’ me start rhyming, Just to get some attention, For this awesome collection, Of an amazing Horror series, That is full of gore and mystery(s). That’s all I got folks goodnight! In all seriousness I told you when it came to the single issues that this mini was a MUST READ, and the story was not even finished yet. Well not that I have read it all, this book should be in your hands by the time you are done reading this review. I want to just say HOLY $#!+ and be done with it, but I can’t. The horror in this book is beyond great. I do have to admit that to me it was kind of obvious who the “bad guy” was, but I still had more fun than I should have reading it. Take a horror movie where people die in the most Awesome ways, now add to that a teenage drama about high school, then add to that a good detective cop film and then sprinkle on some Old Boy and you have Careful. The artwork was good, very consistent, but it really only shined in the GORE-Geous death scenes. That could easily be my thick-headed horror brain having a bias though. I just can’t get over how much I enjoyed this story. The pacing was great, the mixing of genres was fantastic, but it all got sealed with the ending being so bad ass. The only thing I have left to say on this is IT IS A MUST READ for fans of any genre. Go order it now.

Chillers Anthology – Review

Issue: Chillers OGN
Creators: Daniel Boyd, Robert Tinnell, Gary Reed, William Bitner, Betsy Allen, Jason Pell, Juan Romera, J.C. Grande, Wayne Reid, Jason Rhodes, Ricardo Mendes, S.R. Ayers, Ger Curti, Balsa Gobovic, David Michael Beck
Publisher: Transfuzion Publishing
Release Date: May 2012
Price: $12.00

“Based on the Troma film! Chillers, the classic film from Troma Studios that captured the Silver Scroll Award, returns with all new tales in an original graphic novel. Writer and director Daniel Boyd is joined by some of the best in horror to present more terror and chills. Troma Films is supporting the release of the graphic novel with a re-release of the film on DVD and the Buddy Black Band is releasing a tribute album, Witchfinder, to also coordinate with the graphic novel. Evil travels in many forms, even by bus. But this bus takes its riders to a journey that they can never return from!”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
I love it when an anthology comes together so well because it is not an easy thing to accomplish. Having a large number of writers and artists on a book can lead to a lot of issues unless it is done right, and Chillers is done right. Based of the film of the same name, this collection is by Daniel Boyd, the man behind the Troma film. I have to admit I have not seen the movie before, but after reading this I think I have to. This art in this book is spot on, because every story feels like it belongs. Some of my favorite looking stories in the book were “Dr. Timmy’s Fearless Dentistry”, “On Good Authority” and “Free to a Good Home”. I really liked the concept of what tied the stories together and how people were always getting on the bus. This is a great group of horror writers, who just padded their resume more by being a part of this collection. A few of my favorite stories were “Mickey Barnes Gets a Gift”, “Ghoulas” and “Until the Flies Come”. No matter how I look at it, I love this collection. I read a lot of anthology titles and Chillers is quickly rising to the top of the list with the best of them. This book is also like a gateway drug because after reading it, I NEED to see the movie. I am sure fans of the movie will be picking this one up as well. Overall this was a great read from start to finish. I can not wait for a sequel.

Whispers in the Walls TPB – Review

Issue: Whispers in the Walls TPB
Writer: David Muñoz
Artist: Tirso
Colors: Javi Montes
Translation: Alex Donoghue
Publisher: Humanoids
Release Date: Feb 2012
Pages: 184
Price: $19.95

A gothic tale of horror from David Muñoz (co-writer of Guillermo Del Toro’s THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE film) and artist Tirso. Czechoslovakia, 1949. What Evil lurks within the walls of an ancient Children’s Infirmary? After the brutal murder of her parents, Sarah, a young orphan, is about to discover just that and much more. “

Dying Breath: 5.0 out of 5
Oh, how I have waited for this collection of images and words to be bound so I could finally finish the story of Whispers in the Walls. Let’s start with the artwork on this series. I don’t know what it is about imported books, but they are just GORE-Geous. Tirso’s style was so consistent throughout, his monsters looked AHHH-Mazing, and his visual storytelling would have worked without the translation. Luckily though we got that translation of Muñoz’s story. I have to point out that the colors by Montes, just took this book straight to the top. No scene was ever to dark (when the lights are off) and every panel he touched, he brought to life. The art team easily get’s a 5 from me. The actual story started off with a mystery in the air, that when fleshed out, lead to one of the best stories I have ever had the pleasure to read. The pacing was always on point. There was never a dull moment to be had. On one hand I was worried about the kids, then on the other I was worried about the monsters, and the way they all came together created the perfect mix of entertainment. What I liked most, was that after I was done reading it, I knew there could be more to come. So get on with it already! I need a back story to what has already happened, I need to know where Sarah is going next and I need to know more about all of these Monster classes. This universe is ready to be explored, but make no mistake about it, this book can stand alone as a one and done. Overall I have to give this book a 5 out of 5, which alone puts it in a very limited class of books I have reviewed. I can’t think of anyone who would not enjoy this story, because I think it can cover so many genres. Don’t pass on this book, it will easily surprise you on how amazing it is.

Rebel Blood #1 – Review

Issue: Rebel Blood #1
Writer: Alex Link, Riley Rossmo
Artist: Riley Rossmo
Publisher: Image Comics
Release Date: March 2012
Pages: 28
Price: $3.50

“The world went to hell in a hand basket. A highly infectious disease has turned every living thing into zombies. Your neighbors will rend your flesh with their bare teeth. So will the rats. And if the rats don’t, the squirrels will. Save yourself. Stay in the woods. Pray it hasn’t reached the wolves…and keep your gun loaded.”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
BOOM! The words to start this story say it all! BOOM PEOPLE! BOOM! Riley Rossmo teams up with Alex Link to bring us into this strange world of animals with issues. The artwork is well beyond off the hook, and has totally been turned up to 11. Rossmo has this style that just screams this book is perfect in his hands. It is GORE-Geous with the emphasis on gore. What really got the artwork in this book a perfect score was a scene where characters moved about without and panel divisions. Rossmo played with this readers eyes and knew how movement would work from left to right. Of course you have to add in the great color work and the monstrous animals, because who ain’t gonna love that. In terms of the story, I need more now! The story is told in a different manner than most comics, with a decent amount of jumping going on. This is a very hard trick to pull off, unless it is done right. The main character has some great internal issues that play out on the pages. It leads to two levels of mystery being laid out here. On one hand you have the obvious animal issue but then you have this internal conflict being played out. Overall I don’t see how anyone could pass on this book. I’m done with #1 and I already want the rest to be in my hands right now. Jaw Dropping, Mother F*(!ing, Brain Tickling, Horror Comic Book Goodness!

You better be careful reading this issue of Careful 2, because it will make your brain melt with joy. It has been a little while since the first issue came out, but I didn’t really need a recap. Carungi and Smith did a fantastic job, including enough detail from the story so far in this issue. Their writing on this book is amazing. The dialogue is spot on from panel to panel, and the way they write the horror elements leaves this air of mystery and terror hanging above this readers head. The big spotlight though needs to be on the artwork. When I say GORE-Geous I am emphasizing the GORE in this one. The 2 scenes of dead bodies just gave me a bad case of jaw drop, I am seriously still trying to pick it up off the floor! The character designs are consistent throughout and I want to throw a special high-five to the lettering for its addition to the suspense found in this book. I can see a clear path to the end of this one, but I know it will not happen as I expect it too. This book takes horror, mystery and teen age life to a whole new level, and it better keeping heading up the stairs with future issues. A serious MUST READ.

Publisher: Oni Press
Release Date: 2011
Pages: 160
Price: $19.99

“In the aftermath of the tragic battle of the Maw, Drake and company hide in the sprawling city of New Orleans. But as they plot their next move, they find themselves embroiled in another harrowing adventure. Unexpected threats, new enemies, and a host of strange spirits are already aligning against them.”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Oh you stupid man Dan! How can you go so long and still not be caught up with this AMAZING series! Sadly folks I am behind and reading this one in trade form, but I have to tell you, I think it is something that you can’t pass up any longer. The artwork in this series is just GORE-Geous, surprisingly minus the gore. This trade takes place in the grand city of New Orleans, as we catch up with the crew as they try to understand more about the guns. Hurtt does a fantastic job of capturing the Crescent City and surroundings. The swamps are spooky, the graveyards are grotesque and the man draws a damn fine alligator. I have a soft spot for alligators in comics. The story itself has many intense moments followed up by some great slow points. Bunn has such an ear for the dialogue, nothing seems out-of-place. This book is just so damn addicting. I can not wait for the day I see this translated to the big/small screen, and I know it will happen. Mixing supernatural and western elements has been done before but not on this level. When I get caught up on the trades, I will be going back and getting the single issues. This is easily one of the best books on the shelves right now. I honestly can’t see who it wouldn’t appeal to.

Rex Zombie Killer #1 – Review

Issue: Rex Zombie Killer #1
Writer: Rob Anderson
Artist: Dafu Yu
Publisher: Big Dog Ink
Release Date: 2012
Price: $3.50

“In the wake of a zombie apocalypse, a small band of animals, led by a hyper-intelligent Golden Retriever named Rex, and accompanied by a baseball bat-wielding gorilla, begin their cross-country journey in the hope of finding safety…and a home.”

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Here is a question, what would happen to our pets in the event of a zombie apocalypse? Rex Zombie Killer is here to answer that for us, as this group of 3 dogs, a cat and a gorilla team up for survival in the new world of the walking dead. The artwork in this issue is really nice. The colors pop off of every page which lends to how the book reads, but I can’t help but wonder how this one might have looked had it been done in black and white. The character designs are great, the zombies look GORE-Geous, and the consistency from panel to panel is spot on. The writing is full of action and progresses at a good pace. I did like the inclusion of back stories on some of the main cast, and can only hope that the rest will be covered in issues to come. The story itself comes off as all age material, and I am guessing that is based on the main cast being animals. This is why color pages work here, because if you went black and white people might expect a grittier story to be presented. Overall I think this is a good all ages read. It might not have the gore that some are looking for, and it is not for them. This issue tells a good story about survival on a different level than what we are bombarded with every month. I say it is easily worth checking out.

The truth is here as this hot new series continues!”

Dying Breath: 4.5 out of 5
Death, Deceit and Danger lurk within the pages of Xenoholics #4. This series is a non-stop action packed thriller that leaves me on the edge of my seat with every new issue. The artwork by Damoose is so perfect for the style of story being told. I love his character designs throughout. The destruction in the city, the main cast and even the aliens that show up are all amazingly done. He has a style that captures the seriousness and humor all in one shot. Williamson is just killing this story. The angles he is taking in telling the tale astound me. From the possibility of lies and cover-ups to what might really be going on just makes this one a perfect page turner. I wonder what will happen next after every page, and then I get to the end and need to know what will happen next! This issue comes with a perfect cliffhanger after the events within unfolded. Something big is coming and I will be there front and center to find out what it is. LOVE THIS SERIES!
