If you've bought an Image book in the last two years, the odds are that you've seen an ad for Revival; usually one looking like this. The covers are all (with one exception) drawn by Jenny Frison. I posted the "beginners' guide" a while back, in case you are unfamiliar with the series.

It is a genuinely unsettling book, not just in terms of gore (there's lashings of it in this post, so, you've been warned), in body horror (which is closely tied in to gore. I felt my stomach turn when we got to the girl on the cover of #13) and the unpleasantness of people (Like a lot of horror, it raises the question of "Who is the real sick man, in this so called society?" -there was one bit at the end of the third trade that was horrible because it was likely).

It was also nominated in the 2013 Harvey for Best Artist(Mike Norton), Best Writer (Tim Seeley), Best Cover Artist (Jenny Frison) and Best New Series, but didn't win any of them.

I myself do not care for Rat Queens. I find the characters unlikable and, for the most part, very bland (and as a D&D player, I find myself wondering about the mechanics of this world). However, I picked it up because it got good buzz, and it's also nominated for an Eisner for "Best New Series", so clearly some people like it. Perhaps some of you will enjoy it more than I.

Also the series can be fairly bloody, so while I'm not posting the worst of it, fair warning.

Let's dive in )

I posted this all the way back in 2010 but I figured today would be a good day to share it again. It came from from the Wildstorm New Line Horror line. In my mind, stories like this are the best way to utilize film-to-comic stories--stuff that would never happen in the actual films. I think even people who don't like Jason and co. might be pleasantly surprised by this one. 

Disclaimer: As this is a Friday the 13th comic, there's a bit of gore. So take that into consideration.

I wasn't planning on posting this but it was just scanlated by Ito translator 'iemonsy' so I figured I'd share it with you all.

Also this story is pretty gruesome so keep that in mind.

My first (of hopefully a few) 'Villains Being Awesome' post is dedicated to the Governor from The Walking Dead. Here's a fun scene with him that doesn't require much context to understand.

Also warning, a bit of zombie-related gore.

"I suspect [my Churchill]'ll be contentious, and probably in a shot-by-both-sides way. For those who view him as a hero figure and Greatest Briton Ever, it's far too dark. For those who view him as an imperial, racist monster, it's far too favorable." - Kieron Gillen

Careful before you click; this one gets quite gory.

After the last Attack on Titan post I wanted to post some scans that will give people a good idea of what the series is about without giving away major plot-twists (in which there are many). A scene that will act as a microcosm of the series so people will have an idea of whether it's their cup of tea. I found this one.
