The best vampire love story on the market comes to an intense conclusion in the final chapter of the five part story arc of Tim Seeley’s Ex Sanguine. This story is flirted with a new type of vampire mythology and loaded with themes of forbidden love. Though this may seem a tad similar so many garbage pop culture vampire stories, it is anything but. It takes a lot of guts and creativity on Tim Seeley’s part to take a very taboo topic and make it into something that reflects well on the horror genre. READ MORE
As the countdown of the series’ last issues inevitably continues, Hack/Slash #23 promises lots of twist and turns, while the action heats up. With all the important players gathering, an epic war is about to take place. You definitely don’t want to miss out on the slasher slayers’ last stand. READ MORE
Revival is an excellent young series thus far, but it’s had a tendency to overwhelm the reader with so many different storylines. While this problem resurfaces again, it’s mitigated by a relatively strong focus on Officer Cyprus’ investigation of a recent reviver-related murder. This storyline has depth, intrigue, suspense, and twists. The rest of the issue manages to advance the plots of the rest of the characters, or at least provide updates on where they are, even if it feels cluttered. READ MORE

Sick of lame vampire love? Yeah, well, we all are. Good thing Tim Seeley knows how to do vampire romance right. Ex Sanguine is a splendid little tale of vampire love mixed in with a serial killer and shocking amounts of gore. Seeley’s portrayal of vampires shows them as crude, blood-thirsty monsters, but begs the question, “is that really all that different from humans?” Check out the exclusive preview below from Dark Horse. “Ex Sanguine” #4 hits shops on January 16th.

Romances don’t tend to find their way onto Bloody-Disgusting, lovey dovey bullshit doesn’t usually make its way into the horror genre (at least the horror we favor). There are exceptions to every rule however, and Tim Seeley has proven this by weaving the tale of love story between an ancient vampire and a young serial killer. Ex-Sanguine has captivated me from the get go with its fast paced story, fantastic art, and of course, its blood soaked romance. READ MORE
The opening pages of Revival, by writer Tim Seeley and artist Mike Norton, are some of the creepiest in comics and they serve as a powerful beginning for the series. The first volume collects issues one through six and Seeley’s story is so masterfully paced that you’ll have to talk yourself out of reading it all in one sitting. Or do. This tale of the risen dead and the living who have to deal with them in a small Wisconsin town is just that good. READ MORE
There’s no doubt that Revival is an intelligent, promising series from Image Comics. The pseudo-zombie drama has a unique approach to its subject and characters, with sharp dialogue and good art to boot. However, it has a tendency to overwhelm its narrative with too many intersecting plotlines, resulting in uncertain character motivations and muddled plot progressions. Unfortunately, “Revival” #5 succumbs to these flaws. READ MORE
After a kick ass debut, Tim Seeley and his partner in crime, Josh Scott Emmons, pump out an awesome second issue of Ex Sanguine. This issue expands on the relationship between the Sanguine Killer and the local vampire Saul Adams; the budding of a bloody romance and more eerie vampire mythology. Tim Seeley brings the romantic vampire pop culture fad back to the blood infested darkness, right where it belongs! READ MORE
Revival #4 is the latest entry in Tim Seeley’s fresh, intellectually intriguing take on zombies. This issue sees a number of developments in rural Wisconsin, where the series is set, as Dana Cypress begins to believe all “revivers” are inherently violent, her sister Em – a reviver – comes face to face with something that seems to have some tie to her, and a famous reporter gets a couple of, shall we say, shitty surprises. The issue can be somewhat confusing at times, as it jumps around a lot, but is mostly solid. Ultimately though, what makes this issue most appealing is the anticipation of what will happen in the next one. READ MORE

Hack/Slash has seen more directors than I really care to name, and today The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marcus Nispel is the latest name attached to direct the comic to film adaptation.
