Sandman Revealed

MAJOR DARK NIGHTS THE METAL SPOILER AHEAD READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

Have you ever read Sandman you really need to give it read some time one of the best gothic Supernatural comics ever and no I don’t mean from the tv show. Morpheus also know as DREAM is one of the super powers mystical God’s of the DC Universe.  He fought many a great nightmare creatures trying to  steal his power. The writing was so amazing by Neil Gaiman with a rotating cast of artists. Once  during Grant Morrison run on JLA he appeared in the book but that was his successor Daniel. Death his sister would appear to Lex Luther in 2011. As readers of The Sandman may recall, Dream is actually Daniel Hall, the successor to Morpheus, the original star of that series

It had been asked several times if Vertigo titles had appeared in DC regular continuity and with what happened in DC Rebirth #1 last year and Superman Reborn and Batman/Flash The Button  a few months ago with Dr.Manhatten and the Watchmen it seems as Vertigo universe is bleeding they to ours. Now with the last page of the Metal #1 revealing Dream of The Endless it seems the rebirth is mergering it or it always has been when Manhattan formed the new 52 6 years ago.

I recommend picking up The Sandman Overture by Gaiman and JH Williams III and Dave Stewart as well as Sandman  vol 1-10 of the original Vertigo 90s series.

Blood Stain Review

Posted in Art, authors, Comedy, Comic Books, horror with tags , , , , on March 30, 2017 by chrisdsav

Did you ever lose your job …Ever think you will never amount to anything other than menial work beneath you …Work that makes you feel defeated in life. This is something I feel a lot. I have not found a full time job in years that was not temporary or retail related. I read what the premises of what Bloodstain was and I latched onto this comic immediately.

bloodstain_vol1-1

Blood Stain tell the story of a young girl who can’t find a job and in the end takes a job working for what we perceive to be a Mad Scientist. The setting of the comic looks like something out of a twisted Disney cartoon and that’s exactly what it is. Artist Writer Linda Sejic who has been on this radio show was inspired to draw by Disney cartoons as a little girl. She has this great colorful visual style not seen in comics. Blood Stain looks like a Cartoon on paper. She has such a great flair for this art it suits the story.

The characters are both funny and engaging making me speed read thru vol 1 and more recently vol 2. You got to love how characters speak in different speech bubbles like Dr. Vlad Stein who has this icy death like tone according to Elliot Torres the main character. The facial expressions are captured perfectly in this story.

If you want to know more about Blood Stain and the author/artists check out my interview with her below and pick up both vols now at your local Comic Book Store, In MA I recommend Thats Entertainment, The Hall of Comics, Bedrock Comics, and Harrison Comics.
