The decision to celebrate ten years of the Walking Dead with a near bi-weekly roll out of a 12 issue story arc ("All Out War") has proven to be a double edged sword for readers. It seems like Kirkman and company are struggling to find an appropriate pace for the arc. While each issue has major developments and action (and nearly always features a major character death), it's feeling more and more like each issue could have been told in half the pages.
Allegory as subtle as a jack hammer didn't ruin a film that I admired for at least trying to be science fiction. The characters are conflicted and desperate, and seem to be living moment to moment. In an age were sci-fi films (really, all of genre) are dominated by super geniuses that always make the right moves, it was refreshing.
Tony Brock is an artist based out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Brock's subject matter is from a broad spectrum (he describes it as "pop-culture themed images with a retro feel"), but his genre images attract horror fans of all kinds. Bloody Good Horror recently had a chance to chat with Brock about his art, horror comics, the South and the convention circuit...
Noah Dorsey is co-creator and co-writer of Image comics "Non Humans" and creator and writer of "Saint Chaos", a new horror comic from eR Studios. BGH had a chance to pick Dorsey's brain about the origins of "Saint Chaos", torture devices, and scalding hot caramel.
Walt Flanagan wears a lot of hats. He's the manager of a comic book store, a comic book artist (having drawn everything from the epic classic monster mash-up "War of the Undead" to Batman) the star of AMC's "Comic Book Men", and a co-host of the popular, multiple award winning podcast "Tell 'Em Steve Dave". This October, Flanagan (along with writer and co-creator Bryan Johnson) brings us "Cryptozoic Man".
