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.
