Reviewed: Outcast By Kirkman & Azaceta, Vol. 1 TPB

Back when this series first came out I picked up the first few issues and… Never read them. I got around to reading issue 1 a few months back and it was interesting enough to get me up to Worlds Greatest and pick up the first few trades. The first arc is perhaps one of the most captivating spiritual horror sagas I’ve ever read.   Continue reading “Reviewed: Outcast By Kirkman & Azaceta, Vol. 1 TPB”

Reviewed: Lake of Fire #4

I was attracted to this title first by the cover, then by the title. Lake of fire is of course a classic reference to hell, the art shows a small armed group of knights heading towards a steaming chasms in a snowy mountain range, when I flipped through the nicely printed pages it was revealed this was a story featuring Templar knights. I assumed this would be as most stories featuring the Templar, a bashing of them as nothing more than blood thirsty animals such as shown in the Ridley Scott film Kingdom of Heaven, but… This wasn’t the case.

First Impressions: The Black Monday Murders

-1

I’ll have to begin with a disclaimer. I’m a bit of a fan of Hickman’s work. The last of the Marvel epics that captured my attention was his last work with Marvel, and I’m still eagerly waiting on the conclusion to his SHIELD title. But it’s his work away from the house of ideas that’s more recently made me a fan. East of west, a end of days tale in a strange techno apocalypse world and the rather disturbing but inventive alternate reality tale taking place in The Manhattan Projects, both were the first books of his outside of Marvel that I picked up, here years later, I’m still following them, when many other titles have been dropped from my list.

His stories have the ability that make your head spin, your mind boggle and at times, frustrate you as a reader to no end. There’s twists you’ll never see coming and characters that make you wonder who he wants you to root for, if anyone. One of his newest titles, Black Monday Murders seems to be continuing these trends. After only one issue (Note: there are now four issues out, I’m behind) the creep factor is high, the suspense real and the characters feel like they have a real depth to them.
