This week we are going to take a good, hard look at two titles that YOU, the reader should be reading. Don’t take this personally, Daddy isn’t yelling, he’s just emotional today and feeling rather chipper. Believe me, no amount of caffeine, nicotine, and or other form of mind altering method will shake this terrible thing from my bones. Someone, anyone, a Doctor for the dear Editor, please. For the love of all things holy man hurry, before it’s too late!
For a long time now we have been telling you that Image’s “GREEN WAKE” is one of the single best (Yes, better than your copy of “FLASHPOINT”, kids. Sorry)monthlies currently running, and by far the best mini-series in the genre all year long. But the sands of time are unforgiving little devils, and this week Riley Rossmo and Kurtis Wiebe will be ending the story with the most grotesque, bloody, and disturbing thing the likes of which you haven’t seen since the 2011 Betty White Calendar. Inside you’ll find a 5 page peek under the curtain and see if you catch anyone missing a top…or a face.
For fans of “GREEN WAKE” who will be undoubtedly spending the next several days picking their minds up off of the floor, the wall, and the ceiling, now would also be a good time to check out another more HIDDEN gem from Image entitled, “SCREAMLAND”. The series might be the literary version of comparing apples and oranges, but with a great mystery, great pacing, and an excellent cast of characters Christopher Sebola and Harold Sipe are able to bring to the table you would be hard pressed to find much better. So just in case you need any more convincing (Trust me: I’m an expert) you can check out a separate 5 page preview of the third ish in the series, which will also be hitting shelves tomorrow. Read on for the skinny…
