Nothing brings to mind evil like the idea of Nazis. The righteous anger that flows at the mere mention of the name is true, especially in the world of Hellboy. But alongside that is another name that conjures up similar ire and fear: Rasputin. In Mike Mignola‘s Rasputin: The Voice Of The Dragon #1, we witness an allegiance form of the most diabolical sorts.

Comic Review: The Disciples #1

The Disciples #1
Written by Steve Niles
Art by Christopher Mitten
Colors by Jay Fotos
Letters by Thomas Mauer
Black Mask Studios
Release Date: May 27, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Part bounty hunter saga with nods to Alien and Firefly, The Disciples starts off with a slow build that turns into a big bang in the first issue of what may shape up to be a very exciting series.

The Disciples #1 starts with three companions heading to Ganymede, one of Jupiter’s moons. It and the other moons in the solar system have recently been colonized in a Gold Rush-style land rush. Ganymede was settled by a religious cult (that started in Florida, obviously). One of the members of this cult is the daughter of a senator, and our three heroes have been sent to bring her back. Of course, the start of their journey doesn’t go as planned, and right from the beginning they encounter one creepy-ass alien who does not seem to come in peace.

Release Date: November 27, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Cal McDonald, the creation of Steve Niles (possibly best known for his title 30 Days of Night) is back in his latest mini-series under the Criminal Macabre banner. As the inset of the comic so accurately summarizes him, Cal is a pill-popping, alcoholic degenerate, who teams up with his ghoul associate Mo’Lock and traverses around the sin-infested streets of Los Angeles battling a growing horde of monsters. Think Dylan Dog but with less clarinet and more inebriation. The Eyes of Frankenstein picks up shortly after Cal’s last adventure where he found himself transformed into one of the undead and is now contending with life, so to speak, as a ghoul.

For Cal though, there is no rest for the weary and he finds himself quickly swept up in his latest adventure, this time providing his unusual investigative talents to Frankentstein’s monster, who is slowly going blind and it is up to Cal to find a solution. Through his associate Mo’Lock, Cal reluctantly turns to Jason Hemlock, an authority on the occult, for assistance. Hemlock may just be able repair the Monster’s eyes, and shed some light on Cal’s transformation into a ghoul, but is his help truly benevolent or is there a larger sinister plan at work?
