    Things That Go Bump in the Night

    Let’s face it, people love to be scared. There is a catharsis in scary stories — they allow us to face our fears but in a safe setting. It’s one of the reasons horror movies are popular and profitable.

    So, it’s no surprise that comics have a long tradition of horror stories. Going back to classic anthology series like Creepy or Eerie, comics readers have always had a fascination with macabre and the terrifying.

    Every medium has its own strengths and weaknesses in regards to telling stories in specific genres. Films tell horror stories use the unique combination of picture and sound to create atmosphere and build scares. Comics obviously lack the ability to create terror aurally or with rapid editing. This in no way makes horror comics less terrifying, it simply means they must rely on a different bag of tools to scare the pants off of readers.

    Comics are a medium built on turning two-dimensional drawings on a page into fully realized characters and worlds. In reading comics we as readers are asked to bring a lot to a story. We dictate the pace of the panels, the speed of the dialogue, and how long we linger on certain images. Our emotional investment must be extremely high to create a willingness to engage with the comic. To be scared we have to give ourselves over to the horror crafted by the creative team of book.

    Horror as the Backdrop for Morality

    walking-dead There’s no way to talk about modern horror comics without bringing up The Walking Dead, written by Robert Kirkman and drawn in its first six issues by Tony Moore and subsequently by Charlie Adlard. The Walking Dead is unquestionably one of the most popular and successful comics of the modern era. While being a horror story, this is a book with mass appeal. Just look at the monster success of the television adaptation. One of the big keys to the book’s success is that the zombie apocalypse is a backdrop for a moving and deeply tragic morality tale. The Walking Dead is about struggling to survive through hopelessness.

    In issue 24 of the comic, our protagonist Rick Grimes ends an epic speech with the line: “We are the Walking Dead.” It’s true, the characters of this book are doomed their only fate appears to be death or becoming part of the mass of flesh eating zombies. While this may seem incredibly grim, it actually allows Kirkman the opportunity to write a book examining the qualities of humanity that individuals and society hold most dear. While there is certainly dread in the frequent death or zombification of beloved characters, the book’s main focus is on the cost of survival. The moral debate at the center of the story is about what’s the point of surviving if we lose our humanity in the process.

    Real Villains and the Potential for a Happy Ending

    The Strain Comics at TFAW.comThe struggle for humanity takes on a much more literal meaning in The Strain. Based on the series of popular novels, writer David Lapham and artist Mike Huddleston bring the story to comics. The Strain is about the apocalyptic spread of a virus that turns people into vampires.

    Unlike the faceless cause of zombies in The Walking Dead, The Strain has a tangible villain at the core of its story. The Master is a centuries-old creature of evil with a plot to take over the world. Our heroes are not doomed. The Strain instead takes on more of a war story vibe. This is about humanity’s struggle against an oppressor and conceivably this battle can be won. There is a potential happy ending possible in this world.

    It’s that hope that can actually be terrifying in The Strain. Instead of a world that’s already ended for all intents and purposes we see our world slipping into darkness and desperately root for our heroes to return things to normal.

    The Setting Amps up the Fear

    harrowWhile The Walking Dead and The Strain are urban nightmares about the dissolution of society, there is also room for more gothic horror in comics. Harrow County by Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook is a creepy and wonderfully unsettling piece of Southern Gothic storytelling. Focusing on a small town’s fears of a young girl becoming a witch, there is a streak of paranoia that runs throughout the book. Of course, there’s the classic (and historical) image of a mob of frightened townsfolk trying to burn a witch. But there’s also the paranoia of one’s own destiny. If you’re told you’re going to be evil and do wicked things, does that mean your fate is sealed?

    Playing on the classic horror trope of the fear of the matured woman and the power she can wield, Bunn and Crook also bring in plenty of eerie imagery. Images of a skinless boy and of course, his now sentient skin crossed with fiery ghosts and mulit-eyed monsters will stick with readers long after they put the book down. Especially, when they are presented in Crook’s dreamy hauntingly beautiful watercolor panels.

    Delving into Madness

    Pixu graphic novel at TFAW.comPlaying into it’s own disturbing imagery though in a much more stark manner is Pixu from the Eisner winning team of Gabriel Bá, Becky Cloonan, Fábio Moon, and Vasilis Lolos. Pixu delves deep into a Lovecraftian tale of madness and ever-encroaching darkness. The book bounces around a collection of tenants in an apartment complex. The disparate stories start to intertwine as the madness of the characters grows. This book plays on one’s fear of losing one’s sanity, a potent and always horrific concept especially in the hands of such masters of the medium.

    TAKE A PEEK INSIDE PIXU

    Humans Aren’t the Only Heroes

    Beasts of Burden at TFAW.comFor those looking for something a little more off the beaten path, there is Beasts of Burden from Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson. It’s your classic paranormal investigation team story, except all the investigators are dogs and cats. While this may sound like a cute and cuddly kids book, it’s straight up horror (with a bit of a wink). These household pets battle with a cannibalistic frog, cat witches, and even team up with Hellboy in one story. For those looking to balance their monsters and supernatural entities with adorable animals here is a book for you.

    LEARN MORE ABOUT BEASTS OF BURDEN

    So, it’s clear horror is alive and well in the comics world. There are plenty of stories out there to give you creeps, but hopefully now you might have a greater understanding of why they scare you. Monsters and creepy imagery are a hugely necessary part of a horror story, but the sign of a great one is an emotional resonance that sticks with you long after the story is finished.

    Six Reasons The Wicked And Divine Is Better Than Any Other Comic Book

    Wicked and Divine #23 comic book review at TFAW.com

    Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as teenagers. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead.

    The team behind critically acclaimed Young Avengers and Phonogram have taken us on a hell of a ride for the past two years in The Wicked and The Divine, and the series just keeps getting better. We were able to get our hands on a copy of the WicDiv #23, and I’m here to give you the skinny on the issue and lay out the case for why this is the best series on the shelves.

    Keiron Gillen’s Writing

    Wicked & Divine #23 Cover B by Kevin Wada at TFAW.comThe Wicked and The Divine #23 is unique in that it is set up not as a traditional comic, but a one-off issue that reads as an issue of “Pantheon Monthly,” a magazine that has exclusive interviews with some of the series’ principal characters.

    I couldn’t think of a better case study to attest to Gillen’s talents as a writer. I’ve been a fan of The Wicked and The Divine from day one, but this issue has really amplified my love of the series. I was reminded of Marvel’s Front Line series of the past decade in that this issue gives us a different perspective of characters like The Morrigan, Baal, Amaterasu, Lucifer, and Woden. I like that the team is experimenting with these one-off issues because they make the reading experience unique.

    Diverse Set of Characters

    It’s clear that Gillen has put in a lot of effort in charting a course for the series and its characters. With a principal cast of 12 gods and several supporting characters, there’s a lot going on in this series, which has been why WicDiv has been at the top of my reading list for the past two years.

    We’re learning more about the characters each month, and The Wicked and The Divine #23 is no exception. One thing that’s struck me for awhile is that the series features one of the most diverse set of characters we’ve seen for awhile. This isn’t a reboot series where a woman or person of color steps into the titular character’s role–LGBTQ and people of color have been represented from the get-go. It’s refreshing that the WicDiv team is actively trying to create a story for everyone.

    McKelvie x Wilson = Art That is Out of This World

    Writing is only one part of the equation. With comics being a visual storytelling medium, I would argue that art is even more integral to a book’s success. To borrow a baseball term, Jamie McKelvie continues to knock the cover off of the ball–meaning that he isn’t hitting home runs, he’s hitting the art with such ferocity that you can’t help but fall in love in each panel.

    As Gillen has a firm grasp of where these characters’ stories are going, McKelvie’s character designs have been fleshed out. Each character has a unique style and attitude. That’s not to say that things are static–the art has continued to evolve with the characters as they have grown in the series, particularly in the case of Persephone. If you haven’t been reading along, I seriously suggest picking up the Wicked and Divine graphic novels so you can immerse yourself in this art.

    I’ve also been on board with Matthew Wilson’s colors from day one. Collaboration between artists and colorists (also artists, but differentiated as such for sake of clarity) happen every day. This kind of partnership, however, isn’t the norm–McKelvie’s linework and Wilson’s colors go together like fire and heat, milk and Oreos, or conjoined twins. They belong together.

    Mystery & Onions

    Wicked & Divine #23 Cover A by Jamie McKelvie & Matthew Wilson at TFAW.comFrom the beginning, we’ve known the score: within two years’ time, these characters will die. The premise almost dares you not to read the series. The stakes are high and we never really know who’s going to go next. I was surprised at who was killed first as I really liked that character, which kind of makes Gillen the George R.R. Martin of comics.

    We’re always peeling away layers of these characters to find out more details of their motivations, past lives, or the story’s bigger picture. WicDiv represents a type of storytelling that is much more than punch this foe, foil that bad guy’s master plan.

    They’re Effing Gods

    The other thing that really resonates with me is the idea that The Wicked and The Divine expertly deals with themes of fandom, devotion, and religion–these are, after all, gods. Some people love them, others loathe them. It was really fun to read the “interview” with Woden because he is in the latter camp. He’s a racist mysogonist with an inferiority complex.

    I dig the “god” angle of the series a lot.

    It’s a Bold Series

    Like I said before, this is a bold series with a complex set of characters who are brash, powerful, and coming to terms with their fates. Each issue of The Wicked and The Divine is an opportunity for Gillen and McKelvie to yank the rug out from under us. This has happened several times so far, and WicDiv #23 provides a little perspective on the fallout of those moments.

    The team is willing to take this book and its characters to a place where other books from the big two wouldn’t be able to tackle, an that makes this one of the best books on the shelves today.

    I Just Don’t Get These Superhero Comics: What’s the Big Deal About Cyborg, Ghost Rider & X-Factor

    I gotta say, I still love superhero comics. I enjoy checking out Spider-Man, Batman, and The Flash on a regular basis. I identify with these characters because they seem to grow as I’ve grown up. I can relate to the characters and understand why these books are still popular today.

    I was thinking about that the other day and that got me thinking about characters that I just haven’t gotten into. Follow me on this journey, and maybe you can shed some much needed light on these characters for me.

    DC's CyborgFor one reason or another, I’ve never been able to get in to Ghost Rider. It’s not been for lack of trying either. I’ve thumbed through a few issues and even read a trade or two, but the Ghost Rider bug just hasn’t bitten me. Sure, the guy (or gal) has a flaming skull and rides a badass chopper–I can get behind that because it’s awesome. I see the allure there, and understand Johnny Blaze’s motivations behind entering a deal with Mephisto, but beyond that, I just don’t get it.

    I should dig the Spirit of Vengeance. I mean vengeance, that has much more catharsis than justice, right? I should be way more into Ghost Rider than I am into Batman. The reason why I’m not is still lost on me. Maybe it’s just because I have no interest in Hell. I’m not a fire and brimstone kind of guy. I don’t really relate to Johnny Blaze either. His character just doesn’t matter to me. That and I can’t scratch the image of Nicholas Cage out of my head whenever I try to crack an issue.

    DC's CyborgI’m excited about the stuff they’re doing in Flashpoint, but I haven’t been able to shake the weird feeling that Cyborg is out of place. He’s a C character at best, and it seems like he’s been given the keys to the pre-relaunch kingdom.

    His back story is typical of other superhero comics. His parents were scientists. He fell in with a bad crowd. He got injured, and his dad saved his life with cutting-edge technology. He’s had a hard time adjusting to how society treats those who are different. Cool, I get that. I just don’t understand why he’s still around. Also, why is he always teaming up with other people? Do his superpowers come with a severe need for belonging? Maybe it’s just because he can’t support a monthly title of his own. If you’re big on Cyborg, more power to you. I want to be there with you, but it just hasn’t happened yet.

    X-FactorI love the X-Men. I love that the characters are so diverse and that they’re bonded by the fact that society hates and fears them. I dig that. I even enjoy its variations, like X-Force and Alpha Flight. I still find myself unable to get in on X-Factor, though.

    I think my disdain for the book stems from the characters. I haven’t read the old X-Factor stuff, but I’m pretty friggin’ sure I’d read any superhero comics with the original team’s lineup of Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Iceman. But with the current lineup of Madrox the Multiple Man, Wolfsbane, Shatterstar, Richtor, Siryn, and Layla, I fail to see the appeal. Sure, I’m intrigued about what happened to the Madrox baby and all the fallout that probably happened as a result, but it hasn’t been enough to push me over the edge.

    Do you love Ghost Rider, Cyborg or X-Factor? Good. I’m looking for a little education and maybe you can help. Have any recommendations for good stories to read starring any of these characters? I’m willing to do some required reading, all I need is a little guidance. Who knows, maybe this time next month, I’ll have one of these titles on my pull list. Please post your comments below. 🙂

    Comics Omnibus Collections: All You Could Ask for and Then Some

    Omnibuses at TFAW.comI’ve gotten a lot of friends who’ve asked me for recommendations for comics they should read. Usually I go on a little fact-finding mission and pair them up with a book I think they’ll connect with. Lately though, I’ve been turning people on to omnibuses (or omnibusen, if you’re so inclined).

    Why? Because they’re a great value and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Think about it: a $2.99 comic clocks in at 32 pages, and if my wizard-like math skills haven’t failed me, that’s about 10¢ a page. Depending on your reading abilities, you could be done with that issue pretty darn quick, only to return to your mundane existence 10 to 20 minutes later.

    That’s where omnibuses come in to save the day. Clocking in at 350-530+ pages each–most are $25-$60–they’re well worth the price of admission. They’re perfect for me because I’m impatient. Don’t get me wrong, I love monthlies. They do a great job at giving you exactly what you need and keep you coming back month after month (as long as the art and writing are there), but they always leave me wanting.

    There’s nothing quite like turning off your cell phone and curling up with a good omnibus. The closest comparison I have would be to equate it with a movie marathon. Ever watch the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or Lord of the Rings trilogies in one sitting? That’s what I’m talking about. You get to escape to another world for a good long time, leaving all of your cares and concerns behind.

    Not knowing you, [INSERT YOUR NAME HERE], I’d have a hard time recommending an omnibus for you, but here are a few choice ones I’ve really enjoyed:

    • Hack/Slash Ommnibus Vols. 1-3–Tim Seeley’s book turns the typical slasher story on its head with Cassie Hack, the tough-as-nails young girl who hunts murderers, wackos, and monsters with her sweet sidekick, Vlad. Can’t go wrong!
    • Age of Reptiles Omnibus–Though there isn’t a single spoken word in this book, you feel yourself compelled to keep “reading” to see what happens to your favorite characters. The kid who loved dinosaurs in me is still very much alive, and this is a great book for kids of all ages. Super powerful. Warning, there is some death in the book, so use your discretion for younger readers.
    • Astonishing X-Men By Whedon & Cassaday Omnibus HC–This award-winning series was a hit with critics and fans throughout the Whedon/Cassaday run, and was collected into a massive tome that is wholly satisfying.
    • Superman Doomsday Omnibus TPB–There isn’t much to say about this book that hasn’t been said. It’s just really nice to read through all 412 pages of the Doomsday saga in one sitting.
    • Buffy the Vampire Slayer omnibuses–Yes, I’m a dude who likes Buffy. That being said, Dark Horse’s BTVS comics have always been top notch, and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you’re not a Buffy fan if you don’t have at least a few Buffy comics somewhere on a shelf (or standing upright in a polybag sleeve in a box in a dark, dry corner of your basement/spare room). These omnibuses are just too good to pass up, and don’t need to be read in order to be enjoyed.
    • B.P.R.D. Omnibus HC Vol. 1–The complete Plague of Frogs story is presented in all its glory. Many friends I’ve turned on to the Hellboy/B.P.R.D. universe tell me that they prefer the team dynamic in B.P.R.D. to Hellboy’s solo tales. This book is for those of you who’ve picked up a couple of Hellboy trades and are now looking for a good jumping-on point to to get into B.P.R.D..
    • Indiana Jones omnibuses–You can pretend that the fourth movie never came out and travel around the world with Indiana Jones as he hunts down relics and artifacts that belong in a museum!
    • Star Trek omnibuses–Boldly go with these awesome collections of exciting comics starring your favorite Trek characters. TOS was a great volume because it included Star Trek: Year Four.
    • Star Wars omnibuses–Hundreds of pages of Star Wars comics in each installment. What more could you ask for? What more do I need to tell you? Personal faves include Star Wars Omnibus: Menace Revealed, Star Wars Omnibus: Rise of the Sith, and Star Wars Omnibus: Quinlan Vos-Jedi in Darkness.

    What’s your favorite omnibus and why? Post your comment below and you might win one from my bookshelf.

    Chew #18 Review + Preview

    I’m always surprised at how John Layman and Rob Guillory can draw me in to each month’s issue of Chew. They never seem to miss a beat. That’s why these guys get my money every month.

    This week’s release of Chew #18 (yeah, it’s been 18 issues!) is no exception. The prologue starts us off and then they boys kick us right into the action. Before I knew it, I was staring at the last page with my mouth agape at the awesomeness. (I’m not going to spoil it for you, but trust me, it’s great.)

    We’ve encouraged you from the beginning to check out this Cinderella story of the comic book world, but if you haven’t been following the adventures of Tony Chu up to this point, I’m here to tell you that this issue is a good spot for new readers to jump into the series.

    Don’t take my word on how great Chew is, though. I’ll let our 5-Page First Look Preview of the issue and last year’s Eisner Award for Best New Series speak for themselves. 😉

    First picture of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man Sony recently released the first image from the upcoming Spider-Man reboot starring Andrew Garfield (The Social Network). The movie also stars Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Field as Aunt May, and Rhys Ifans as Doc Connors. Directed by newcomer Marc Webb (heh, Webb), the movie is scheduled to be the blockbuster for Independence Day 2012.

    I’m on the fence on this one for now. While the supporting cast is full of great actors, some picks seem a little strange to me. That’s not gonna keep me from posting more “Untitled Spider-Man Reboot” movie news as I come across it. Stay tuned, true believers.
