Dead Life #1

Writer: Jean-CharlesGaudin
Artist: Joan Urgell
Colors: Folny
Publisher: Titan Comics

Ground Zero. Stephen did not know that getting into his grandfather’s treasures in the attic so he could play Indiana Jones with the neighbor down the trail would lead to an outbreak. He was just having fun. How would he know?

Dead Life is an English reprint of the French comic, Dead Life: Crépuscule.

The story starts with scenes of life. Normal conversations and disagreements between husband and wife, the casual meal with extended family as Curtis and Kate return to his parents’ home to pick up their son, Stephen. When Curtis’s dad returns to the attic to retrieve some books he notices that one of his boxes has been opened and the contents are missing.

Warm Bodies

The past few years we’ve seen a surging movement in films and T.V. to capture modernized tales of the supernatural and undead, and we, the fans, can’t seem to get enough. Warm Bodies shows that the zombie sub-genre has not run out of steam yet and offers up a healthy dose of something fresh.

The premise is similar to Shaun of the Dead in that there is a bit of romance, a dash of comedy, and a light sprinkling of horror mixed with some nasty gore but with a twist. Unlike many other zombie films this movie places the zombie population as the hapless protagonists who apparently have a smattering of higher thought functions. Oh and an insatiable hunger for brains naturally...

The Waking: Dream’s End #1

The HIT series that redefines the Zombie genre returns! Years have passed since the events of The Waking took place.

Murder has become practically extinct in a world armed with the knowledge that those who are murdered will return from the dead to take the lives of those guilty…

But within a new world comes a new kind of killer. And he must be stopped! From the writer and creator of the Wonderland trilogy and Fly comes a return to the horror that never sleeps.

The first volume of The Waking was such a big hit, that a follow-up was inevitable.  With the dead coming back to avenge themselves, it’s pretty much made homicide detectives obsolete.  Which is exactly where Vanessa Pelagreno finds herself now, years after her initial involvement, only her problem is much bigger...

Phoenix Comicon : The Rest of the Story

The other day I told you all about my first day at the Phoenix Comicon. Since then and even before then, I’ve been trying to figure out how to tell you all about the other days. You see, there were some good, some bad, some amazing and some eye opening moments that weekend but so much of it is still so tangled up inside of me that I’m not sure what to even say about it. I’m going to do my darndest to give you a good taste of what really is an amazing con but please forgive me if it’s not my usual joyful bubbling.

Friday –

Friday..oh Friday..I woke up early because I had decided to surprise Walter by meeting him at the airport. Justin stayed behind at the hotel to try to figure out just how my corset was supposed to be laced. Meeting up with Walter was pure amazing...

Rex Zombie Killer

Yay, another zombie book! I know that’s what you’re thinking and honestly, I thought it too. Zombies are the new vampires and honestly, I’d rather have sparkly vampires. Now, before you throw stones or glitter at me, at least let me finish this review.

Rex isn’t like any other zombie story out there. It isn’t about yet another group of people holed up somewhere shooting zombies in the head in the hopes to survive. Rex is all about a group of animals, including a baseball bat wielding gorilla, making their way across the country. Their goal? Safety and maybe a new home. Their challenges? Zombies (duh!) and the scum of the Earth that somehow always survives these things.

Before you know it, you’ll be falling in love with the characters and if you’re anything like me, cheering them out loud ...
