Haunt will be a not so scary Xbox 360 Kinect horror game. It looks like in the game you will be exploring a cartoony haunted mansion. The game looks to be 1st person type exploration. Nothing much else is known. No release date either. Trailer below, screens past the break.
Image’s dreamteam of creators and artists are back to their old tricks this Wednesday as Kirkman, McFarlane, Capullo and the rest of the gang release the 9th issue in the “HAUNT” mythos. After weeks of rigorous training Daniel and his brother are thrown into the first official mission for the agency, and beyond the break you can check out the full 5 page preview! Read on for the skinny.
To avoid sounding like a broken record, because I’m pretty sure that by now you all know that Kirkman and McFarlane’s “HAUNT” is fantastic, I’m going to avoid the whole ‘if you’re not reading this, then you’re missing out’ speel that people will usually feed you, and just jump into the review. No need for thanks. It’s all in a days work my fair readers, all in a days work.
All hell is about to break loose in The Agency, and the pawns are all in place for a bloody finale to the fantastic first arc of Image dream-team Robert Kirkman (“THE WALKING DEAD”, “MARVEL ZOMBIES”), Todd McFarlane (“SPAWN”), and the departing Ryan Ottley (“INVINCIBLE”). Beyond the break you’ll find the first 5 pages of the issue which will be released tomorrow as well as the variant cover.
This Is definetely some bad news. Cheif artist behind Image Comics “Haunt” Ryan Ottley (“Invincible”) says that he is calling it quits after issue #5 hits stands February 3rd. Details beyond the break on why Ottley decided to leave Image’s dream team behind and who exactly will be replacing him in time for issue #6 of the ongoing series. READ MORE
Today I got a chance to take a look at a preview for the final issue of the first arc in Robert Kirkman (“Walking Dead”, “Top Cows Pilot Season”) and Todd McFarlane’s (“Spawn”, “Spiderman”) ‘Haunt’. Needless to say it looks f***ing brutal! Read on for the full preview!
As a young lad growing up back in the glory days when reading comic books and horror movies made me an outcast to everyone outside of my family and my only 2 friends outside of that circle, I was caught up in McFarlane-Mania just like the rest. His work in “SPAWN” caused a taboo fascination in my adolescent mind for the satanic, grotesque, and often sultry images he depicted. I read the comics, I played the awful video games which by my own admission remain a guilty pleasure, and I watched the animated series on HBO whenever they decided to play it, staying up far beyond my bedtime. My loyalties knew no bounds. Of course, then I grew up and discovered true masters of their art such as Bendis, Moore, Gaiman, and later Robert Kirkman. So imagine my excitement when “HAUNT” hit shelves for the first time. READ MORE
“HAUNT” is quite possibly one of the more underrated series going right now. The story itself is entirely engrossing, the character designs are sleak, and the art is excellent. After all, what else could you expect from the likes of Todd McFarlane and Robert Kirkman? Here are the details on issue 4 of Image Comics’ bloody good time:
“Haunt faces off against Cobra for the second time — just in time to learn his weakness! Daniel Kilgore’s quest to find his brother’s killer and save the world just got a whole lot more difficult.”
Out of all of the new series to start up at the end of the season last year “HAUNT” would probably have to be my favorite. It’s one of those titles that has garnered more of a cult following with the likes of Niles’ now defunct “SIMON DARK”. Regardless, if you haven’t yet done so get in on this one while it’s still early on, you won’t regret it.
