News: Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead (Comic)

On October 11th artistic mastermind Dennis Willman reveals his newest creation, Ginger-Stein, to the world. Ginger-Stein is the title of a multimedia horror/sci-fi project that is written, created, and illustrated by Willman and is unlike anything the horror audience has ever seen.
Ginger-Stein: Rise of the Undead is the first in a set of six comic book mini-series featuring horror’s hottest new heroine. The story and artwork are deeply rooted in 1980’s horror and sci-fi nostalgia. The violence is over-the-top, and like any good 80’s horror story, there’s sex, drugs, and a breaking of all the rules of how to survive a horror film. All characters in the series are based on models, including notable names such as Leslie Easterbrook (The Devil’s Rejects), Belinda Balaski (The HowlingPirahna), Tiffany Shepis (The Frankenstein Syndrome), Sarah French, and Joe Knetter. Primary models Monique DuPree, Elske McCain, DeeDee Bigelow, Landyn Banx, Deneen Melody, Cari Thompson, Bianca Barnett, Cyndi Crotts and Bobby Ray Akers, Jr., make up just a portion of this eclectic cast.

Review - Hack/Slash #6

Hack/Slash #6 by Image Comics. Written by Tim Seeley. Drawn by Daniel Leister. $3.50.

This issue leads into the new storyline that mostly centers around Cassie and Vlad. She is seeing Slashers kill people in her dreams and heads to LA to find out who the slasher is and to kill them.

It makes fun of Lady Gaga, Jersey Shore and rappers all in one issue. Once again the artwork is back with the regular artist and doesn't miss a beat in this issue either.

The comic is simply a guilty pleasure to all the fans. Tim Seeley brings his creations to life but is not scared of playing around with them as well. I think he has had a better time at it since he has moved to Image Comics, and will continue to bring out a solid book for the fans.

Review - Hellblazer #281

Hellblazer #281 by Vertigo/DC comics. Written by Peter Milliagn, Drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli. $2.99

Part five, and the end to the storyline of Phantom Pains. In this issue Gemma finally springs her trap on John only to find out she might have been mistaken. The demon looks like a half hawk and half female, taking the form of one of the Furies and proceeds to kick Johns ass as he struggles with something he thought he got rid of: fear.

The story has been compelling, showing John in a different light as he is now married and has other things to worry about. Gemma on the other hand seems to be in a world of her own, or that they are trying to develop her as a mage in her own right. Renee, his new wife, is one hell of a alchemist and I can only assume that she will become more and more intertwined in future story as they are written.

One note here, DC, the owner of Vertigo, has decided to bring John Constantine back into the "super-hero" universe. It isn't certain if this will impact future issue of the Vertigo title or if the "super-hero" John Constantine will be a separate entity in himself.
