The Deadlander (NEWS)
Kevin Ferrara's The Deadlander is an interesting new four issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics that came out a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to reading the first issue last night and really enjoyed it. It's a horror western best described as "a wicked zombie tale about a supernatural killer escaping damnation ---one bullet at a time!" The artwork is especially well done, a bit like Bernie Wrightson or Gene Colan with just the right amount of Graham Ingels thrown in to make it even more relevant here. If only the writing was up to the same level as the art this would be a total winner... but overall it's still a recomended read for those of you looking for something new and horrific on the shelves.
