Horror comics



I'd like to mention two new horror related comic books that I picked up this week.  The first one was actually suggested to me by my lovely wife.  The title is iZombie, and it revolves around Gwen who is a new zombie but this comic has a twist to it.  Without spoiling too much lets just say Gwen has to eat one fresh brain a month lest she becomes a more generic type zombie.  After she eats her monthly cuisine.... well I'll let you read to see what happens to her.  This one starts off kind of slow but finds itself by the end of the book and I fully expect this title to be a must purchase every issue.  Vertigo published I,Zombie, which is DC comic's mature line of comic books.  Visit Vertigo by clicking the link.

The second title I picked up this week was Bram Stoker's: Death Ship, the Last Voyage of the Demeter.  Yup that's right folks this comic tells the untold story of the Russian ship that transported Dracula from Transylvania to England.  The comic starts off with the loading of the precious cargo and quickly moves to the first part of the voyage at sea where several strange occurrences and sightings begin to happen on the Demeter.  Death Ship issue 1 was fairly short but did what it intended to do and that was set up this harrowing horror adventure and begin the tale of Dracula's transport on the Demeter.  This one was published by IDW, which you can visit by clicking the link.

Yeah, the first issue was a pretty good setup tale, really curious to see where it goes from here.
