Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a horror comic! I have long been searching for a horror comic that not only delivers a few good chills, but also maintains a fun, yet serious tone, and I have finally found it in Ragemoor!
Ragemoor #1 tells the story of a castle built 3,000 years before Christ, on the blood, sweat, and tears of Pagans, and the family, or rather, remaining member of the family, who resides in it. But when a distant Uncle comes to claim the castle for his own with dubious intent, we quickly learn that the castle has a mind of its own!
With a very Edgar Allen Poe feel to it, this book reminds me a lot of the original horror classic, The Haunting. Fans of Tales from the Crypt should also get a kick out of this book as well, despite it deviating from the anthology format.
Richard Corbenâ€™s art looks great in this beautifully crafted piece. He maintains the tone of impending doom well in integrating the terrors into the castleâ€™s very walls through the black and white inks. The story moves quickly and is just as fun a second time around as it was the first. For any horror fan this is a MUST buy, and for anyone in the mood for a fun story with a creepy edge to it, this was made with love (and blood) for you!
After just the first issue, I am already disappointed that this is only a four-issue limited series. Seriously, do yourself a favor and pick this up!!!
