If there is one thing to be said about Ben Templesmith (’30 Days of Night’) it’s that he knows how to pick projects. He is one of the most sought after names in the business right now so it is interesting that he is so picky about what he puts his name on, and doesn’t do like many have and just take on 15 separate projects at once so he can cash in on his own success. So this is why it never goes unnoticed when Ben decides to fully illustrate an entire series like he has chosen to do with Ben McCool’s ‘CHOKER’. However, if the first issue is any sort of indicator of what we are to expect from the series, then it might just be the writing that makes this one stand out. Read on for the review.
