I heard about this rumor a while back from a very reliable source, but I chose not to report it for fear of starting some sort of debacle among creators (and to not be a jerk to said source). But it seems the cat is now out of the bag. Riley Rossmo is taking leave from “Bedlam” due to creative differences with the series writer, Nick Spencer. READ MORE
With such believable characters at its center, Dia De Los Muertos #1 establishes its premise to create some memorable stories. This creative team-up of writers and artists have designed their tales to revolve around the annual Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead. The first issue offers up a wonederful trio of ghostly tales that explore the mysteries that lie beyond the grave. “Dia De Los Muertos” is a unique horror anthology with big ambitions. And it looks beautiful to boot. READ MORE
A completely unique take on the world of crime and serial killers is quickly becoming a more meaningful and deep story than issue #1 represented. Bedlam comes from the creative mind of Nick Spencer who is weaving an intense tale of mayhem and murder with the aid of an incredible artist in Riley Rossomo. The combination of both the story and art makes it one hell of an interesting read and I’m not surprised at all. READ MORE
It’s usually difficult to buy comic book issues every month. Most likely, I’ll wait till the issues are collected and buy the trade paperback. It’s easier for me to see how the story arc comes full circle. But often, the best comics are the ones I buy in single issues and still get the trade paperback as well. Here is my list of the best trade paperbacks to come out of 2012. READ MORE
Image Comics’ newest horror story, Bedlam, is back this week to add to the mayhem from the debut issue. The story is loaded with intriguing plot details as villain extraordinaire Madder Red, tries to take on a new life. Rossmo’s art is specifically designed for Spencer’s story, adding to its overall insanity of the story. This issue picks up the pace, but remains somewhat ominous. READ MORE
Its Halloween week and Image comics chose this unique opportunity to introduce their newest serial killer to the world of comics. From the brilliantly creative mind of Nick Spencer comes the twisted story of Bedlam, a city, that has recently, gotten over the terror of the murderous acts of a sick and twisted man who preys on the local children and women. Especially children. This book isn’t the customary serial killer story, and the wonderful art by Riley Rossmo reflects its untraditional style. READ MORE
With the release of Debris #4, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo are once again closing a chapter on another successful collaboration. The epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series follows Maya as she clashes with Raven, the leader of Athabasca, and leads the Athabascan Tribe to victory in a massive battle between humanity and the Colossals; more specifically, the wasteland dragon spirit, Nogo.
Keeping up with the speed of the previous installments, Wiebe and Rossmo continue to approach the narrative with an accelerated pace that delivers until the very epic end. It’s just a shame that it’s over. READ MORE
With only one more issue ready for release next month, Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo’s Debris #3 perfectly sets the stage for the epic finale to this well-written, and beautifully illustrated, junk-punk series. Following the last installment, Maiden outcast, Kessel, joins Maya in her quest to find the legendary water source located in Athabasca, in hopes of saving the last human tribe on earth. As the story progresses, however, it becomes abundantly clear that Maya and the rest of her tribe aren’t the only humans left in this post-apocalyptic world. READ MORE
Following the first issue of a new, four-issue, mini-series by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo, Debris #2 continues with Maya settling into her new role as Protector of Maiden. After Jormungand destroys the village’s only water maker, Maya leaves Maiden behind to carry out Calista’s final request to find Athabasca—a legendary water source, the last one in this post-apocalyptic, dystopian wasteland, that could ultimately save her people. What she encounters along the way is a more ferocious “breed” of umbra, and a past villager of Maiden with a vague history with her fallen mentor. READ MORE
We’ve been waiting a long time for this, since it was announced last year that Nick Spencer and Riley Rossmo were teaming up on a new horror series. Two of the best in their respective fields are teaming up for ‘Bedlam’, a book that screams terror. Finally, some real details about the book are released today by Image Comics. The series is set in a city that has been terrorized by a crazed killer known only as Madder Red. Check out more below. READ MORE
Mysterious hybrid animal zombies, that’s what you can expect from Riley Rossmo and Alex Link’s fuel injected pandemic story, Rebel Blood. With so many zombie stories coming out promising to be “different”, it’s hard to tell which are actually making an effort to stray from the mainstream, and which are just blowing hot air. With “Rebel Blood”, every single page scream with undead novelty. It’s a fast paced, head trip through a world where the zombie plague does more than just turn the dead into blood thirsty killers. We’ve got an exclusive preview of issue #3 below, which hits May 23rd. READ MORE
Fast, bloody, horrifying, insane, chaotic, and confident, Rebel Blood gives new meaning to zombie fiction. Unlike most undead stories that focus on the horror of humanity, in Rossmo and Link’s wooded zombie world, nothing is safe from the plague. Ravenous wolves, cute puppies, and packs of deer infest the forest area, and Chuck Neville is doing all he can to survive. You probably don’t want to read anything about zombies anymore, but “Rebel Blood” is another beast entirely. Coming from Riley Rossmo, it’s no surprise that the book looks and feels as good as it does. Check out the exclusive six-page preview below from Image Comics. READ MORE
Wiebe and Rossmo teamed up to bring us one of the year’s best horror comics with “Green Wake”, and though the series saw an unfortunate early cancellation due to low sales (despite the rave reviews), they are back together this July with Debris. The book sounds nothing like “Green Wake” other than the fact that the dream team is back together, and for that we couldn’t be happier. “Debris” is set in the distant future, a time where the world has wasted away and the spirits of old have come back to ravish the world once and for all. One rough and tough girl quests to save humanity in the midst of the chaos. Yeah, it sounds awesome as sh*t. You can expect some insane creature designs from Rossmo and top notch storytelling from Wiebe as “Debris” hits this summer from Image Comics. Check the preview after the jump. READ MORE
With the insane success of The Walking Dead TV series, and novels like World War Z, zombies have now infiltrating mainstream culture on every possible level. The last thing that the comics’ world needs is another zombie plague book, right? Well, not according to Riley Rossmo. Riley Rossmo (Green Wake) and writer Alex Link have breathed life into the zombie genre once again with their new book Rebel Blood.
Sad as I may be, Green Wake is coming to its final issue next week. This series has been nothing short of phenomenal in every regard since the very first issue, and it’s a shame to see it end. The series landed the number one spot on my Best Comics of 2011 list, and I now feel it belongs among my favorite comics ever. I’ve been ranting and raving about how amazing this book is since last year, so after next week, I promise I’ll stop. But for the love of god(s) and all that is holy, you’ve gotta read this book. Wiebe is a master storyteller, and Rossmo’s art is top notch. check out the monstrous 9-page preview after the jump. Read on for the skinny…
Kurtis Wiebe dropped this bomb on us yesterday, Green Wake is currently being re-released as a serialized web comic, and it’s completely free! You now have absolutely no excuses. The book will be available on Keenspot with daily updates starting at issue #1. You know we love Green Wake here at BD, so find out why. Find the link after the jump.
It’s becoming increasingly hard to talk about Green Wake because of how amazing and dark it is. Sadly, this week brings on the second to last issue of the series, but I have no doubt that Green Wake will continue to be read for years to come. If you’re not reading this series, do so before I explode. Check the sweet preview below full of goodies and creatures crawling your way.

Riley Rossmo is like so hot right now! He’s a busy dude lending his talented art skills to Green Wake, and doing some backups for Monocyte, but he’s about to embark on a new journey into the realm of writing. So what happens when you give someone like Rossmo the pen? How about an extremely visceral and rampant zombie book where nothing is safe from infection.

This is highly unusual given that it’s only supposed to be my “pick” of the week, but it’s my column so I’ll do as I damn well please! I’m seriously bursting at the seams with excitement for both of these titles (which you probably know by now). To be frank, the new Daredevil is without a doubt one of the best ongoing books right now at Marvel. Green Wake on the other hand, is one of the best horror titles anywhere. While these two books may be completely distinct in almost every possible way, they are both truly commendable comics that deserve some attention. Read on for the skinny…
By this point it’s become almost habitual to choose Green Wake as the GC Pick Of The Week. From the very first issue, Green Wake had my attention, and now, as lame as it sounds, it has my heart (you can make fun of me in the comments). Green Wake is the kind of mystery tale that leaves you feeling dirty on the inside because of how much pleasure you derive from such a grotesque world. It’s the kind of story you wish you had created. It’s the kind of horror tale that’s more than just blood and guts. Creators Kurtis J. Wiebe and Riley Rossmo fashioned an absorbing, relentless tale of horror and criminal suspense that took comic fans by storm over the summer months, and what better time to welcome the start of the new ongoing than Halloween.
