I Want Flesh and Blood
The comic series! Flesh and Blood the comic series, not actual flesh and blood. I’m not a disturbed creeper. Anyway! I stumbled across this seemingly awesome graphic novel, but alas, I don’t have the cash to get it (stupid bills, stupid adulthood). So instead of having the pleasure of reading this comic, I shall write about it instead.
“From acclaimed writer and artist team Robert Tinnell and Neil Vokes (THE BLACK FOREST, THE WICKED WEST) comes a sensuous horror epic in the spirit of European horror cinema of the 1960s and ’70s. The death of Carmilla, the seductive vampire, sets in motion events that lead to a monumental struggle between the forces of darkness and a brave band of mortals. Its members include a reluctant young Abraham Van Helsing and a mysterious monster hunter struggling to keep his own inner monster at bay. When Baron Frankenstein is recruited to add his scientific genius to the group’s arsenal, Dracula and his undead kingdom face the possibility of total annihilation. Cover art by Dan Brereton. Suggested for mature readers.”
Here are the good things folks have said about Flesh and Blood:
“Anyone familiar with Hammer films should put this book on your ‘Must buy and devour list.” –AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
“It’s scary stuff, the pace is breakneck, the writing smart and the result is something you’ve never seen before in comic books – a vampire tale told with genuine suspense, intelligence and cinema-like edits.” –USA TODAY
“For fans of classic horror who feel that certain modern franchises have softened the edges of our favorite monsters, FLESH AND BLOOD has arrived to make us scared again.” –FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND
It sounds SO rad! I want it!
