Review: ‘Ballistic’ #4

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 14:58

Issue four of “Ballistic” proves to be no different than the three that preceded it. Butch’s haphazard inquest through the heart of Repo City State pushes forward and the secret of Bang-Bang is finally revealed. Adam Egypt Mortimer and Darick Robertson routinely make other comics look bad. This is a book that taps into modern social issues with wild imagination under the guise of biological science fiction and body horror. It’s totally exciting and thought provoking.

WRITTEN BY: Adam Egypt Mortimer
ART BY: Darick Robertson
PUBLISHER: Black Mask Studios
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: February 26, 2013

If you’ve been routinely checking out “Ballistic” then you may remember the last issue of this series dropped in November. It’s been quite some time, so let’s recap. Butch wants to be a criminal. Gennie is blown to bits. Gennie 2 has joined the this casual criminal force and Bang-Bang Butch’s talking gun has a sensitive secret that seemingly every badass in Repo City State wants.

This month Mortimer further submerges his book in the dep
ths of his insane research. His already deep world gets deeper and the backstory of his most interesting concept and character is explored in a tragic and exciting way. We’re finally given the backstory of the talking gun. It’s surprisingly heartfelt and goes a long way to explain the nature of just what Butch fell into.

It’s funny because through no efforts of his own Butch has fulfilled his goal. He is the most sought after criminal in Repo City State but his rise to fame was accidental in all the right ways. With his newfound status all sorts of terrifying threats emerge. They range for disgusting bio-creatures to deadly assassins.

Yet the real star of the show is the Cronenbergian body-horror at play here. Mortimer really delves into the fear of the living and breathing organisms that we share the world with and holds a lens to the relationship. The experience will make you cringe in revelation as you receive a startling look at the future.

Robertson’s art is a thing of sheer beauty. No task seems too large for the talented artist. As he brings his charm and wit to every page, the BigDick Gangster panel returns in full form, his flashback is action packed, and the fallout is somber. The finale of the issue is all around insanity that shows off both his paneling ability and his haunting character work.

“Ballistic” is easily the best and most polished comic book you’re not reading. It magnifies certain aspects of the human condition with such brilliance that it may make you feel uncomfortable. It is ripe with horror, self-reflection, and provides a totally unique take on science fiction while still finding the time to craft compelling characters. It’s a breath of fresh air in the all to cluttered science fiction arena that isn’t afraid to shock and educate you. It’s an invaluable reading experience that I urge you to read.

Rating 4.5/5 Skulls.

Review: "Deadly Class" # 2

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 14:52

School is in session and its one hellish place. If you thought the cliques in your school were bad, imagine if they were made up of the viscous offspring of world-renowned assassins. Marcus is thrown head first into King’s Dominion in an incredibly original and cruel spin on the high school dynamic “Deadly Class” initiates the insanity. Think Harry Potter but instead of magic you’ve got bloodlust and you’re halfway there.


WRITTEN BY: Rick Remender
ART BY: Wes Craig
PUBLISHER: Image
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: February 26, 2014

“Deadly Class” should remind you of all those awful times you walked the cafeteria looking for a place to belong and you were met with blank stares. School can be a volatile place. Now imagine if trained killers attended your school with chips on their shoulders and you didn’t quite belong. That’s Marcus’ plight. He may be good, but he’s going to have to prove it to everyone.

Remender balances the inner school dynamics with the politics of social clubs. Socially the school is a mess, comprised from cliques centered on lineage. They all have something to prove and each of them are dangerous in their own way. The classes are brutal and ridiculously interesting. It’s almost as if we get to step into Remender’s mind after years of killing characters in comics. He’s teaching us to be trained killers. It’s clear the man has stored a lot of this deadly information in his own head, and here it flows naturally to the page. It reads smooth like silk, and is presented with a certain matter of fact that will make you eager to attend your own beheading class.

Wes Craig’s art is a revelation. The amount of panels the dude can fit on a page is staggering. He commands the page brilliantly and uses many small panels to demonstrate the larger scene at hand. He manages to keep his art dynamic and interesting even when he doesn’t have a whole lot of action to deal with this month. His style pays tribute to the eighties with perfect design flourishes that exhibit the many fashion styles of the era. His character models are thorough and diverse.

“Deadly Class” made me want to be an assassin in very much the same way Harry Potter made many children want to be a wizard. It’s not quite as friendly of an atmosphere, but the foreign world is so interesting that you can’t help but want to be a part of it.

The stakes are incredibly high here, and the learning curve is only bound to get more difficult. Plus, in the final moments of the issue Remender does his best to remind the reader that this book isn’t all about learning. It’s about Marcus’ past, and it seems that his history will come knocking sooner rather than later.

“Deadly Class” #2 is a master class in social dynamics with incredibly skillful art that will leave you slavering for more. It’s fun, dangerous, and lewd like all the best stuff.

Rating 4/5

[Now Playing] 'Alan Wake' Episode 20

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 14:48

This is the episode where I deftly dodge a duo of dashing chainsawmen. Okay, they’re not all that dashing, but once you hop on that alliteration train it’s tough getting off, am I right?

In the penultimate episode of our Alan Wake series I get lost, admit to playing far too much Rust, and both David and I reminisce on the days of the Sega Genesis and one of our favorite games, Primal Rage.

Review: ‘Black Science’ #4

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 14:25

The Dimensonauts are fractured. Lost in a hostile dimension surrounded by high tech Native Americans who’d love to kill them. Ward leads an empowered charge back to the pillar and the stakes are higher than ever. “Black Science” has its most energetic chapter yet as it refocuses back on the supporting characters lost in this dimensional shuffle.


WRITTEN BY: Rick Remender
ART BY: Matteo Scalera
COLOR BY: Dean White
PUBLISHER: Image
PRICE: $3.50
RELEASE: February 26, 2014

So much always seems to be happening in every issue of this book. Remender is the master of breakneck pacing, so its no surprise that you’ll feel pulled along for the wild ride. What does surprise is the heartfelt loss that this month inspires. This chapter is a somber one. It serves up a heaping helping of action to start things off and concludes with the sobering look at the group’s bleak situation.

This issue totally belongs to Ward, every one of these opening pages are absolutely sprightly due to his combat expertise. While, Kadir chugs the story along in his own way. It is clear he’ll pose more of a threat down the line, and the rest of the group really have their moments to react to the chaos around them.

The team is comprised of flawed and realistic characters that all react to their situation in remarkably different ways. The team dynamic remains one of the largest draws in a book already dripping with irresistible concepts. Yet grounded characters rise above everything else.

Remender balances a busy script with relative ease, as does Matteo Scalera. His art continues to impress. Most notably in the opening pages of the issue with the resourceful ways he finds to execute the attacking Native Americans. There is muddy grit to the action that completely fades once the battle has halted. Warm facial expressions abound in this issue, serving to remind us of who these characters are outside of crisis.

Scalera’s thick lines are met with fantastic contrast. There is never a bright moment in the art, despite being surrounded by the vibrancy of Dean White’s neon soaked colors. Something happens in this combination to create a perfect harmony.

Remender’s script gives the perfect tease to carry the story into the next chapter. Everything almost seems to be going right for the group, and in the final moments he manages to spin everything on its head once again. It’s the kind of storytelling he’s known for, and it never disappoints. It doesn’t feel forced and embraces the infinite opportunities afforded by his premise.

The horrors that lie in wait with chapter five of “Black Science” is almost too exciting to fathom. The team is finally back together and united around getting back home, but something tells me that harmony won’t last long.

She Kills Ron Bonk With a Supernatural STD-Infected Vagina

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:15

Many years ago my life was changed. Not by some tragedy or epiphany, but by a movie so wretched and boring it lives in infamy as what is no doubt the worst movie I have ever seen. That title is held by Ron Bonk's Strawberry Estates, and now... over a decade later THE BONK IS BACK!

Don't get me wrong... Ron is a great guy and a gentleman, and I'm sure he's learned a thing or 10k about filmmaking since that flick was unleashed upon my forever scarred psyche. Even I have to admit his latest effort, She Kills, looks like a boatload of fun.

Judge for yourselves while watching the trailer and digging on the artwork.

Ya know what? Even if She Kills is just okay, it enabled me to write what is probably my favorite headline ever. Well played, Mr. Bonk. Well played.

Written and directed by Bonk, the film stars Jennie Russo, Trey Harrison, Michael Merchant, Jody Pucello, David Royal, and Martha Zemsta.

She Kills tells the story of Sadie, a woman who, after her life is destroyed by a gang called "The Touchers," sets out for revenge equipped with a special superhuman power she previously didn't know she possessed.

Anathema To Open For HIM On US Tour

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:00

UK rock group Anathema has announced that they will be embarking on a US tour as direct support for Finnish love metal band HIM. The band is touring in support of their 2012 album Weather Systems, which ranks as one of my favorite albums ever released. They are also taking a break from writing/recording a new album to go on tour.

Guitarist/vocalist Daniel Cavanagh comments, “Anathema is delighted to return to the United States as special guests of our personal friends Ville Valo and HIM. It’s always a great occasion playing with our Finnish mates – as we’ve known each other’s music for many years and have been sharing stages together on a number of occasions since our main support to them in the UK for ‘Dark Light’ in 2006. To do this in the United States, the birthplace of rock and roll and one of Anathema’s true musical and spiritual homes, is just a fantastic prospect – especially so soon after our first headlining tour last autumn which was a success beyond our expectations. We hope to really provoke a strong reaction from the audience, and I’m sure we will perform a song or two from our brand new album, which is being finished as I write. HIM in the USA? Bring it on!

I saw Anathema tour last year and it was fantastic! The band has enormous amounts of energy live and they performed every song flawlessly. Go and see them if they come near your neck of the woods. All tour dates can be seen below.

Tour dates:
3/07 – Los Angeles, CA @ House Of Blues
3/08 – Anaheim, CA @ House of Blues
3/09 – San Francisco, CA @ Fillmore
3/12 – Chicago, IL @ House of Blues

Dracula Reborn in New Artwork and Trailer

Dread Central - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 12:00

We first told you about Halcyon International Pictures preparing a slate of low budget movies based on classic movie monsters under the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" banner in 2010, but over the years things have changed a bit! Read on for the latest details.

The main change is to the name of the banner itself. Gone is the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" moniker, and in its place we have the far less snazzy name of the "Still Night Monster Movie Series."

Either way, a trailer and some new artwork are here for their first release, Dracula Reborn, which is being billed as a modern retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel.

Dani Lennon, Rene Arreola, Linda Bella, Corey Landis, and Stuart Rigby star. Patrick McManus directs.

Synopsis
Set in modern day Los Angeles, the story revolves around Jonathan Harker, a man who had it all... a good job, a beautiful wife, and a family on its way. But in the dark of night a wealthy and enigmatic stranger, Vladimir Sarkany, will come forth to destroy it all. Now, in order to get his life back, he has to join forces with unlikely crusader Abraham Van Helsing and prepare himself to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Forget what you know about the legend... all is about to be Reborn.

New 'ROAM' Video Details Character Customization, Streamlined Interface

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 11:00

The developer behind ROAM, a post-apocalyptic top-down horror game where you scavenge for resources to build the ultimate anti-zombie fortress, has released a new video update that details a few massive changes the game has seen since the last update. In it, we get a look at the streamlined UI and a few of the basic structures as well as how they can be affected by the world. For example, if it starts to rain, that’s good for your water collector, but it’s bad for your campfire.

We also get a brief tease of the character customization system, which will let players choose their character’s clothing, gender, race, background, and special trait. My girl’s going to be adept at throwing knives, because guns run out of bullets, but only babies run out of knives.

Babymetal Releases Live Music Video For "ギミチョコ!!"

bloody disgusting - Wed, 02/26/2014 - 09:00

Japan’s teen-fronted metal band Babymetal has released a live video for their track “ギミチョコ!!” (“Give Me Choco!!”).

I’m 100% behind this group!

“Give Me Choco!!” comes from the band’s self-titled debut album. You can buy Babymetal via iTunes.
