Review: 'The Bounce' #2

Sex is about the only thing missing in “The Bounce” #2. There’s drugs, death, shadowy power brokers and even some cross-dressing for good measure. Oh yeah, and there’s some drug-powered superheroes too in case you were wondering. READ MORE

Review: 'The Bounce' #1

Potheads and superheroes. Why has no one combined these two before? Have you ever seen a superhero on weed? The Bounce #1 lights up and kicks off this new series from Joe Casey and David Messina. It’s almost timely as we see what Bouncing Boy from the Legion of Super-Heroes would be like if he wasn’t chubby and living in the twenty-first century. Hmm, maybe this IS him seeing as the latest incarnation of LSH has recently been cancelled! Is writer Joe Casey that omniscient? He might be…but otherwise, this is a solid introductory issue.

Review: 'Sex' #1

Just the title alone is a pretty good reason to get hooked with Sex #1. As subtlety is thrown out the window, a lot of effort has been made to keep the storytelling on point. This is an interesting psychological drama about an emotionally-flawed man searching for a missing connection in the gritty cityscape. READ MORE

Preview: 'The Milkman Murders' HC

I’m ashamed to admit that I have not yet read Joe Casey’s master contemporary horror work, The Milkman Murders. The book is being reprinted in a nice hardcover edition from Image Comics for only $14.99, and it hits shops on September 12th. “The Milkman Murders” is a book that Ed Brubaker calls, “A truly disturbing and original piece of horror… not for the faint of heart or those looking for spoon-fed niceties, The Milkman Murders is comics as you’ve rarely seen them before.” With art from Steve Parkhouse, this is a must read.

INTERVIEW: Joe Casey Talks New Direction For Image's 'Haunt'!

When it was announced that co-creator/writer Robert Kirkman and artist Greg Capullo, would be leaving “HAUNT”, there was a lot of speculation as to who would come on board to fill their creative shoes. “HAUNT” is one of Image Comics best selling monthly titles and part of the series’ appeal had been the creative powerhouse of two of comic’s biggest names.

For co-creator Todd McFarlane, who publishes “HAUNT” under his Image imprint, it would have been an easy to replace Kirkman and Capullo with a carbon copy creative team and have the book continue to coast in the current direction. Not afraid to rock the boat and shake things up, McFarlane tapped writer Joe Casey (Godland, Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker) and artist Nathan Fox (Dark Reign: Zodiac, DMZ, Blue Estate) to give “HAUNT” a complete creative facelift starting with issue #19.

Bloody-Disgusting.com caught up with writer Joe Casey to discuss the new creative direction of Haunt and how he plans to give the character more of a horror vibe by mixing together buckets of bloody violence and artwork that can “scare the shit outta people”.

Image Comics has also given Bloody-Disgusting readers an exclusive 6-page preview of Haunt #19 after the jump.

GRAPHIC CONTENT PICK OF THE WEEK: Johnny_Trouble - 'Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker' Issue #3

Last week I was tempted to post a crudely drawn hand turkey for my pick of the week. However, THEoDEAD advised against it. Now most of the time that doesn’t really affect what I do, but I listened to my editor for a change. Why a hand turkey? I have no idea, but the thought amused me. Which is probably why I do most of the things I do, despite knowing it goes against my better judgment. However, this week I picked an actual comic book, “BUTCHER BAKER, THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER” Issue #3. Now, if you are willing to take the plunge down the rabbit hole, I will explain myself.

WARNING: I Have A Potty Mouth. Deal With It.
