Chains, Zombies & More Zombies…It Must Be Comic Book Quickies!

Written by Shaun Daniels and Edited by Sharon Wong

Bloodstrike Issue 26

Written by Tim Seeley, Art by Franchesco Gaston, Covers by Tim Seeley & Carlos Badilla and Rob Liefeld and Published by Image Comics. Retail Price $2.99

Talk about waiting a long time between issues!  Joking aside, this re-launch of the undead black ops superhero uses the same numbering system as the original series.  Cabbot Stone is America’s number one anti-terrorist weapon who happens to be dead, or at least undead.  This go-around, Stone’s world is unraveling when he loses his grip on reality all while fighting hordes upon hordes of zombie cyborgs.  Seeley and Gaston weave a horrific and bloody action-packed story that will have you wondering if Stone’s current mission will be his last.

Hellraiser Issue 12

Written by Clive Barker, Robb Humphreys & Mark Miller, Art by Janusz Ordon & Stephen Thompson and Published by Boom! Studios. Retail Price $3.99

The story arc that changes everything for Pinhead and the Cenobites comes to a conclusion with issue 12.  With a battle that was epic in the making, Kristy and Pinhead finish off the fight they started 12 issues ago.  The ending of this issue is shocking, to say the least, and will be a massive ship in the world of Hellraiser.  This series has been steeped in the mythos of Hellraiser and has been a continuation of the appalling continuity of the Clive Barker masterpiece.

The Walking Dead Issue 95

Written by Robert Kirkman, Art by Charlie Adlard & Cliff Rathburn and Published by Image Comics. Retail Price $2.99

The band of survivors make the pilgrimage to meet with Jesus’s people up on Hill Top.  Rick learns a thing or two about trust and finally takes a leap of faith in regards to Jesus and his people.  Unfortunately, Rick and the gang find out that life on the Hill Top isn’t all that different than the rest of the Walker-filled world.  All of this and an ending that cements the fact that the survivors of the Walking Dead are basically f@&ked.  Be sure to check out the five-page preview of Terry Moore’s Rachel Rising in the back of the book.
