Fatale Book Three: West of Hell Graphic Novel Review

Aug 04, 2013 No Comments

The latest volume of Image Comics’ horror-noir hybrid—Fatale Book Three: West of Hell by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—doesn’t quite achieve the success of the previous two collected Fatale volumes focusing on the mysterious Josephine’s emotional turmoil, and not the men around her.  Where the previous volumes each comprise a larger narrative, Book Three is […]

Jul 28, 2013 No Comments

The Crow: Skinning the Wolves marked the end of James O’Barr’s long absence from the franchise he created and he’s back again with a new Crow tale entitled Curare.  The high standard he set with Skinning the Wolves is easily met in this new tale of anguish and pain. The narrative is built around Detective […]

Jul 24, 2013 2 Comments

Joyland by Stephen King is available through Titan Books’ hard-boiled pulp crime imprint, Hard Case Crime.  King’s latest tale is executed in the mold of classics from a bygone era and as such it’s only available via paperback, for now at least.  So for you anti-e-book purists out there, this one’s for you.

The Story of Her Holding an Orange Book Review

Jul 14, 2013 1 Comment

I always say that the great thing about independent art of any kind is the lack of restraints imposed by studios, publishers, record companies, and the like.  I have to say that The Story of Her Holding an Orange is one of the more unique and interesting independent books I’ve read lately.

Deadbeat: Makes You Stronger Book Review

Jun 26, 2013 No Comments

Who can lay claim as the first nation of horror? Although history is littered with classical works and cultures that felt a thing for the macabre (according to old Howie Lovecraft, fear is the most fundamental human emotion known), two nations in particular stand out as the primary purveyors of all things malevolent.

The Witching House and The Girl from the Blood Coven Book Reviews

Jun 02, 2013 No Comments
