ADVANCE REVIEW: Shadows on the Grave #1 – Classic Horror By A Modern Master

ADVANCE REVIEW: Shadows on the Grave #1 – Classic Horror By A Modern Master

If Shadows on the Grave #1 proves anything, it confirms what should be blindingly obvious to anyone reading comics, particularly horror comics; namely that Richard Corben is a grand master comics storyteller. The issue, the first of an eight-issue series, is a beautiful throwback to the horror anthologies that have produced some of the best comics in the history of the medium. And as such, though it’s undeniably old-fashioned, it’s rendered so beautifully and brilliantly…

ADVANCE REVIEW: Conan the Slayer #3

ADVANCE REVIEW: Conan the Slayer #3

As a sub-set of the fantasy genre, Sword and Sorcery has a flavour all its own.
