Zenescope has returned to its’ stomping grounds with Grimm Tales of Terror, a newly released, ongoing monthly horror comic series.  Inspired by Twilight Zone, Creepshow, and Tales from the Crypt, Zenescope, publisher of classic tales with horror and supernatural twists, already has my full attention.

Currently on its second issue, the Grimm Tales of Terror horror anthology was on my pulls list from day one.  The above picture is one of the covers to the first issue.  I pre-ordered that specific cover from my local comic shop, but for some reason it was not in my box.  The book wasn’t even on the shelf.  I was livid, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a title from one of my favorite publishers.  Although I prefer print format for my comic books, I went ahead and ordered it digitally from Comixology.

Written by Ralph Tedesco, the stories so far have given me the chills.  Very Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt style.  Great scripts with the perfect blend of horror and dark humor.

The amazingly terrifying art comes from the creative team of Antonia Bifulco (art) and Marco Lesko (colors).  The gory and horrific creature panels are so beautiful, horror fans will become instant fiends.

Grimm Tales of Terror is a must-read for both horror comic readers, and horror fans in general.  You will definitely be frightened and entertained at the same time.

As a lifelong horror fan, and a fan of the above three classic, horror anthology television shows since childhood, there is no doubt that I will become, and remain, a fan of Grimm Tales of Terror.

By the way, don’t let the covers fool you.  If you don’t know by now, let me tell you.  Zenescope is also known for its’ exotic covers.  Scantily clad women.  That is not what’s inside their comic books.  You get exactly what you read in the descriptions and previews.

VERDICT (drum roll please)

I am giving this title what it deserves, 5/5 stars.

Zombie Tramp Volume 1 Review

zombietramp

Thanks to a bad date arranged by her transvestite madame, Janey Belle, a high-priced and high-demand Hollywood call girl, gets attacked by a zombie.  She escapes, but not before getting bitten.  Now a zombie, Janey seeks vengeance on those that have wronged her.  It may seem odd for a zombie to target certain persons of interest.  But Janey is a rarity.  Her soul is intact, something you don’t usually see in zombies.  She is also exceptionally strong.

WARNING:  This title is for mature readers.  CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO READ ANY PARTS OF THIS COMIC BOOK.  This title is filled with bloodshed, exposed body organs and tissues, foul language, sexually explicit images (lots of big boobs), and all sorts of other good stuff for the mature audience.

Zombie Tramp, an indie comic series published by Action Lab Danger Zone, the mature readers comic book imprint by Action Lab Entertainment, will have you laughing and frightened at the same time.

Dan Mendoza is the writer and illustrator.  Great script with perfect timing.  Excellent character interactions.  The key players in this book are all funny, but dangerous.  From Xula, the beautiful voodoo queen, to the crooked sheriff and that crazed zombie son of his that he keeps chained up in his basement, you will appreciate each character and their distinct personalities.

By the way, my favorite characters in this volume are Xula and Sheriff Rudolf.

It is no secret that I support indie comics as much as I support mainstream comic books, and I will continue to blog and spread the word about good comics to read.  You can find volumes 1 and 2, and single issues on Comixology.  Issue #1 of volume 3 will be available soon.

VERDICT (drum roll please)
This title is good for anyone looking for horror, supernatural, zombies, and fun comics to read.  I strongly recommend this comic.  I am giving this comic book 5/5 stars.
