Brian Wood’s work has consistently made him a critical darling, but for some reason his book have never lit up the sales charts. Since Wood broke onto the scene, he’s always had a firm commitment to working on his creator-owned books like “DMZ” or “Northalnders” rather than writing “Superman” or “Spiderman”, which meant he’s never had the chance to rise to superstar status like a Bendis, Morrison, or Snyder. After a lengthy exclusive contract with DC Comics, Wood is now free to sow his wild oats with the rest of the industry. The Massive #1 is another prime example of his ability to rank up there with the best of them. READ MORE
With the departure of writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders) from DC, we knew it was only a matter of time before Marvel got their hooks into him. Now with the announcement at this weekend’s at Wondercon, Wood will be taking over both X-Men and Ultimate Comics X-Men beginning in June with X-Men #30 and Ultimate X-Men #13. This creative change will bode well for the X-Men books as Wood will undoubtedly give the franchise a well deserved shot in the arm.

At times it is tough to decide what is horror and what isn’t with so many titles “claiming” to be the scariest thing on the shelf, but very rarely do they ever deliver. To me a real horror story doesn’t seek to gross you out or make you have to turn your head in disgust, but one that grabs at something inside of you and twists it like a knife in the gut. If a story is an inherently human one then I can guarantee it will have my full attention. And that is why when I was told to check out the newest issue of Brian Wood’s (“DMZ”) “DEMO” titled “PANGS” by my buddy Mark, who swore up and down that I would “love the damn thing”, I decided to give the book a shot. I was promised a very dark, unnerving, and intimate look into the life of a cannibal, but not the type of cannibal you’d expect to find in a Wes Craven film…I wasn’t disappointed.
