A routine run to the dry wasteland known as Earth goes bad when the cargo ship Ragzon, breaks down. But that’s nothing compared to the nightmare its crew faces when they help out a trio of scientists on their last legs. No good deed goes unpunished in “The Last Hunt”!

“The horror is excellent as well with heightened tension through use of environment (i.e. storms) and mystery. Recently, there has been a renaissance of scares in the medium and this has the potential grab a piece of that.” —Eric Whitman, Daily Blam
“What begins as an investigation into ritual mass suicide during a severe thunderstorm turns into the creeping doom of a supernatural ancient evil. El Torres’ religious research is thorough, completing this mini-series with elements real enough to scare even the most rational of us.” —Christian Sager, CNN.
I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though?

Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
