Let’s go hiking and when we run across an abandoned town, we’ll search the buildings! After narrowly avoiding death in the most gruesome of ways, we’ll take a little souvenir back home to remember the horrific occasion. Sound crazy? Well, yeah. But people do the craziest things when stressed out. Especially if the item they found is a possessed plague doctor mask that reeks of pure evil. Because, yeah, that’s probably going to be a problem.

Welcome to Death Head #3 in all of its twisted glory!

Book Review: Trollhunters By Guillermo del Toro & Daniel Kraus
  |  @   |  

Trollhunters
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition | Audiobook
Written by Guillermo del Toro & Daniel Kraus
Illustrated by Sean Murray
Jacket by E.M. Gist
Disney-Hyperion
Release Date: July 7, 2015

“You are food.” The very first line of Trollhunters provides the motive for the entire novel. Humans are historically food for trolls, but most have evolved to an animal diet, in their natural habitat under bridges and underground. Some, however, still had the taste for human parts.

In 1969, at the height of the Milk Carton epidemic, the Sturges brothers were riding their bikes, soon to be headed home. Then Jack and his younger brother Jim had to be home before dark. It was a dangerous time with all the missing children. They were racing their bikes and all of a sudden, Jack was gone, joining the Milk Carton kids. Jim was never the same.

More reviewing and a video from Guillermo del Toro here below.

Comic Review: The Strain: The Fall #1

The Strain: The Fall #1
Story by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
Illustrated by Mike Huddleston
Letters by Clem Robins
Colors by Dan Jackson
Covers by E.M. Gist
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: July 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Strain is a series of vampire novels by visionary Renaissance man Guillermo del Toro (perhaps best known for directing tiny little films like the Hellboy series) and Chuck Hogan, who previously penned The Town. Last Fall we received news that a made-for-television series is being developed for the FX Network, now this month we are treated to the first issue for series two of the ongoing comic adaptation from Dark Horse Comics.

There is a government conspiracy, a really nasty virus, and a bunch of modern day folks trying to survive something so large and complex in scale, they cannot possibly understand all its implications yet. The clichés don’t even stop there. However, it’s due to the stellar writing that I am willing to walk this rather pessimistic and possibly predictable comic journey a few more miles. Thank goodness for del Toro and Hogan.
