James McCulloch & Janine Van Moosel hit us with the darkest type of horror in the early issues of City of Lost Souls but they’ve maintained the ability to surprise – so the latest issue was always going to be an intriguing read.
Vampires Everywhere from Cult Empire Comics was launched at last year’s MCM Scotland and given how much I enjoyed their previous titles Vietnam Zombie Holocaust & Horror Show, I jumped into the horror book with a great deal of interest.
The first issue of Fraser Campbell’s Alex Automatic was something of a revelation as it introduced a frantic & fresh take on the spy genre so it’s no surprise that I was suitably hyped to see it smash through its recent Kickstarter and ensure that a second issue would hit print.
Writers Ben Errington & Luke Kondor smashed their creative heads together to bring us the first comic released through Hawk & Cleaver in the shape of a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi epic (with a hint of wrestling) El Marvo.
Card Shark Comics’ head honcho Dave Cook recently hit us with not one but two releases following successful Kickstarter campaigns for them both and with already impressive starts to both expectations were high.
The second issue of Griff Gristle from Madius Comics has smashed through its Kickstarter target in much the same way as the first issue did and given how strong a start there was in that opener….that was no surprise!
