Browsing: AfterShock Comics
There’s been a trend in recent years, especially in pop culture, of making historical figures into chasers of the supernatural or monsters. The biggest one of these I can recall has been Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.The latest part of that trend is taking place in an AfterShock comic that focuses on the creator of the Frankenstein tale, attempting to explain how she wrote it in the first place. She experienced it first-hand!
I’m a big believer in variety in my reading. Yes, I buy a lot of superhero comics, but I’m also fascinated by mysteries, crime stories and other kinds of storytelling. I wish I could tell you what I’m going to like, but I often don’t know until I see it. One of my favorite comics companies is AfterShock, and they’ve declared 2019 “The Year of Reading Dangerously.”
Wayne’s Comics Podcast #282 features my interview with writer Michael Heitkemper, then Mike Marts, updates us on AfterShock Comics.
Once again, the great sci-fi question gets asked and answered – That is, “What if?” We all feel quite an attachment to our pets and other animals! But what if that wasn’t necessarily the case coming from them? This series explores their relationships to us and to each other, and it’s quite gripping!
When you mix murder and the supernatural, it makes a heinous act even worse, in my opinion. After all, when a living being removes the life of another for whatever reason, it’s bad enough. But when an extra-natural element gets involved, it makes it even creepier! This book explores what it would be like to be able to observe a murder as if you were doing it yourself! I know I’d have a tough time with that, so imagine what the lead character of this comic feels!
