‘I Suck at This’ reviews by J – Bloody Dreadful

Bloody DreadfulHello and welcome to the first of my new series of reviews for Bigcomicpage.com.

I was going to title this “Good reviews done bad” but feared it may cause confusion among our readers. I feel it’s important to point out before I get stuck in here that I am not a professional writer and I usually struggle to give review about something in more words than “It’s awesome” or “it’s shite” so bear with me for these first few and please permit waffle on a little.

Now it’s time to get the ball rolling and get this show on the road!

Recently I was put in touch with the awesome folk over at Slave Labour Graphics who were kind enough to send me over a new book for review called Bloody Dreadful by Justin Sane (awesome name by the way).

I was sent the first two issues (which completes a two part story) for review and was pleasantly surprised by how good the macabre little tale of love and betrayal set in Victorian era London was and reminded me of classic horror series like “Tales from the Crypt” as the story opens In a graveyard where we meet a grave robber and his dog who comes across a “fortune card” while digging through the remains of our first tales victim.

This leads us into our first tale of terror “What lies ahead” as we are introduced to a young married couple at a fairground where they encounter a mechanical fortune telling machine that predicts a ghastly fate for our couple.

The story unfolds over two issues as our couple face tragedy, betrayal and revenge with some nice little twists along the way, the visual presentation of the book is similar to an old shadow puppet theatre show which makes the story a little more eerie and leaves much to the imagination (which if yours is as vivid as mine, you’re in for some gruesome treats) which actually plays in the books favour and fits in with the Victorian setting.

Fans of SLG’s previous output (In the past I have mentioned Lenore by Roman Dirge) will find the storytelling style pleasantly familiar while newcomers will find an enjoyable little tale that challenges you to visualize much of the horrors for yourself.

Overall I’m looking forward to seeing what other morbid tales come from the very creative mind of Mr Justin Sane and recommend fans of the spooky and macabre check this comic out.

7.5/10

Bloody Dreadful Cover 2

New year, new issue! Issue #2 of my horror anthology comic from SLG Publishing, BLOODY DREADFUL, is now available on comiXology! The startling conclusion to the story “What Lies Ahead” can be summed up thusly:

ISSUE #2 – “What Lies Ahead, Part Two”
After Beatrice is disfigured in the tragic accident the automaton predicted, Harland has her committed to the cold halls of Adolphus Asylum – but is there more than concern for mental health at work in this startling conclusion?
The first issue is FREE, so you can get both comics for only 99 cents! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE COMPLETE SERIES!
