The premises with extreme potential brings disappointment. I expected a lot more from a France entry. Typically, a mixture of drama and brutal violence is handled well from the french, but this time it felt small, pointless and insignificant. Was the murderous creature even that bad and monsterish as depicted? The guy was just slightly ugly, too tall for his age and hairless, oh the fear! Although well crafted, much is left desired.
Starring Japan's on-screen favorite Tatsuya Fujiwara (best known for his roles in BATTLE ROYALE and DEATH NOTE the movie) as a mislead sociopath with supernatural powers. Thinking himself superior to the rest of ningen-kind, his world is flipped upside down when he finds someone capable of resisting his hypnotic powers and a battle to the death ensues. Satomi Ishihara stole hearts. However, the movie was a bit of a let down. The soundtrack was repetitive and grating. It started out a promising psychological thriller but quickly turned into a predictable bore.
Magnificent opus of gore splatter and violence, a gruesome plate of zombies with a side of soccer. GOAL stomps all its genres tropes dead. Charismatic, light on its feet and hilarious, all offered at a demonic pace. Awesome and truly entertaining. Here, the subject of darkness is handled with subtle grace and style. Bravo on this one France, bravo! Tip of the hat to you, OF THE DEAD was mesmerizing, don't miss it once distributed.
What happens when we the people give our governments too much control? What if every piece of information we received was watched, edited and tailored towards an agenda put forth by the controlling powers of our countries? Chanel Zero examines this issue and takes a look at life of a world through a government filter. This series is the perfect mix of graphic design, social commentary and engaging story telling. Even though this was Brian Wood’s first venture into indie comics it is completely compelling and enjoyable.
The Foot Soldiers is a story of what happens when all the worlds heroes are gone, who takes their place. How does the world operate without protection. In the world of comics one thing reigns true, the world needs heroes. This book is a retelling of a common trope where we see the birth of a new generation of heroes through the worlds need.
There are very few comics I get as excited about as I got when I read my copy of “Friends with Boys,” this comic has everything that I love in a comic. A story that is engaging and full of mystery and intrigue, relatable characters and Hicks’ charming art style.
Described as a ‘speculative memoir’, cartoonist Bob Fingerman’s From the Ashes predicts the future and makes the end of the world a hilarious satire. Set in the smouldering ruins of Manhattan after an unknown but not unexpected disaster, the story follows Bob and his wife Michelle. They journey through a post apocalyptic New York, encountering cannibal foodies, friendly neighborhood mutants and reproduction camps run by ‘Rile O’Biley’. Apocalyptic literature often takes itself way too seriously (read: The Road by Cormac McCarthy) but Fingerman’s cheeky satire is bang on the money.
