In 2006 Wildstorm gained the rights to publish comics off of the various New Line Horror characters (Freddy, Jason and Leatherface). Previously they were published by Avatar and as you can expect they were little more than gore porn. Wildstorm's output was a mixed bag but they published some genuinely good stories (one of them was the comic where Jason befriends a deformed boy which you can see in the archives).

In my opinion the best comic published from them was the initial series from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with Wesley Craig on art. It's one of the better horror comics I've read and it makes me genuinely sad that Abnett and Lanning never worked on any of the recent films because this would have been ten times better than the 'prequel' or the 3D movie that just came out.

As a content warning there's an included rape scene in addition to the usual gore and violence.

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.

Miyazaki's Concepts of Good vs. Evil, and Matt Rhode's 'My Hero'

Though not strictly actual comics in the sense that they'd be okay in of themselves to be posted here, I thought that these are relevant enough to our community that people might think that they're cool in their own right.

Been picking through the complete run of Authority recently, and I'm currently at the execrable Transfer of Power arc, which is basically Tom Peyer and Mark Millar reminding us that 90% of people are not just apathetic towards the suffering of others, but outright sadists who enjoy causing severe physical and emotional trauma to others.

Oh goody.

I was surprised, however, when I came across one of the best one-off characters I've ever seen, especially coming from Wildstorm's The Authority (not that there aren't times the Authority are fun themselves).

As the sun begins to set... the bugle now has played )

8 pages behind the cut, from The Authority #25, 26 and #27.

Greetings True Believers!

I'm a life-long history buff, lover of alternate history and comic collector. So Wildstorm's mini-series about the WWII invasion of Japan was a natural fit.

Storming Paradise is set in world were the WWII conflict between the United States and the Empire of Japan wasn't ended by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In this world, the atomic tests failed and the Allies had to launch Operation Downfall, the invasion of Japan.

This of course changes history and different people meet different fates. One of the those people is General George S. Patton. One of the most talented and colorful soldiers in U.S. history. He was a real son of a bitch and my reading about the man tells me he would preferred the ending he got in the SP universe then the one he got in our world.

Warning! War-time racist language. Might not be safe for work.
