Wednesday Comics on Thursday... on Friday Again - March 25, 2011

Once again I'm posting about comics on Friday.

I completely love the covers for Neonomicon #4 from Avatar Press. It's written by Alan Moore with art by Jacen Burrows.

Book of the Dead Cover
Wednesday Comics on Thursday... on Friday Again - March 25, 2011
The cataclysmic final issue of the all-new, all Alan Moore, horror series spoken of only in hushed whispers for years is finally here! NEONOMICON, the sequel to THE COURTYARD Graphic Novel, is slithering its way onto shelves to take its place as a Great Old One of comics terror! Illustrated by Moore's favorite demented artist, Jacen Burrows, NEONOMICON pulls no punches as every full-colored page is covered in nightmares brought to gruesome life! Agent Brears has, quite literally, been to hell and back. Hell just happens to look like a network of tunnels beneath an esoteric little bookstore in Salem, Mass. But now that Brears has walked out of hell, she can see things that most people can't. Things that would drive most people mad. But as NEONOMICON draws to a close, Brears has one more thing she wants to show you... Alan Moore’s Neonomicon #4 is available with a Regular and Wraparound covers by Jacen Burrows and a special rare Book of the Dead retailer incentive. Comic Cavalcade

I think the Wraparound Cover is exceptional. It has a Creature From the Black Lagoon vibe. It's not the Creature though. It shows Gargouille de la Mer (gargoyle of the sea). Here's a picture of the Creature From the Black Lagoon. You decide.

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - December 2, 2010

Comics were delayed 1 day this week so I just picked them up this afternoon. Techincally this is Thursday Comics on Thursday! My comic shop opens at 2:00 pm on new release day because they don't get their new comics until early on the release day. That will change next year when they start receiving the comics the day before.

This week, there were a lot of comics that I really like!

George R.R. Martin's Fevre Dream, #9 of 10

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - December 2, 2010
The ten-issue vampire epic on the bayou from the writer of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels rushes to its conclusion in this penultimate issue! From the New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R. Martin, comes a tale of vampire clans, death and debauchery, legendary blood masters, and even a few epic steamboat races on the muddy Mississippi. This is Martin's FEVRE DREAM, an antebellum story of power, loss, and the fever of bloodlust. Abner Marsh set out to hunt down the Fevre Dream, but it was Damon Julian who captured Marsh! Now, with his only ally York trapped under the control of the evil blood-master Julian, will Abner be able to escape from Sour Billy before dark? Each issue of this stunning full-color epic is illustrated by Rafa Lopez, an artist whose skilled line captures every moonlit drop of blood in delicious detail. Adapted by the Hugo-nominated author Daniel Abraham, this version of FEVRE DREAM stays faithful to Martin's original dark vision, while bringing the torture and joy of his vampires to almost-human life. This haunting series is available with Regular and Wraparound painted covers by Felipe Massafera and a very limited Nightmare retailer incentive.
