Over the years, after dozens of bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shapeshifters, angels and fallen gods. They even came face to face with Lucifer and the Four Horsemen in averting the Apocalypse. With the help of allies — both human and supernatural — they’ve discovered that every threat they vanquish opens a new door for evil to enter in. In the show’s eighth season, their supernatural hunting expedition led them directly into an age-old power struggle involving the King of Hell, legions of warrior angels and a series of divine trials to prove themselves worthy of sealing the Gates of Hell forever. With the help of their protector, the fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins), Sam and Dean’s lifelong quest to rid the world of evil will take everything they’ve got. As dawn arrives after their endless struggle and sacrifice to defeat the world’s monsters, they know that, come nightfall, something otherworldly — something supernatural — will claw its way out of the shadows, demanding their attention.

Your Alternative Comics Beat For May 3rd, 2013: Ten Grand

Alt Beat With Kenneth Porter

 

The Story

Joe Fitzgerald will take on any job for $10,000. As a former mob enforcer he’s seen his share of the ugliness of the world and is no stranger to the weird or supernatural. But when a young girl brings him a new job and a suspicious photograph, Joe agrees to take the job for free for “personal reasons.” In a case steeped in demonology and the unknown, Joe must find the missing girl and finish a job he swore an oath to complete – avenging and seeing his dead wife Laura again.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7444:]]

Ten Grand is a mixture of crime noir, the supernatural, and the underworld (two meanings here) that delivers for fans of the genres. J. Michael Straczynski and Ben Templesmith work together to give a mood that feels like a split between Hellblazer and old pulp detective novels.

Straczynski’s Writing

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7445:]]

Joe is one of those characters that you want to follow around instantly. Straczynski knows his way around a comic book page and his character building with Mr. Fitzgerald really shows it. We get inside glimpses of how Joe things, what motivates him, and the types of places he frequents.

There’s a particular scene with an offer for a sexual act that really shows what kind of a man Joe is, but I won’t spoil the outcome for you. It’s something that you just have to read in order to do the little mental fist pump that comes with that kind of a character moment.

Templesmith’s Art

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7446:]]

The artwork really sets the mood for this supernatural tale. It’s grim, rough, and has that earthy feel that makes you believe that it’s a true mixture between noir and demonic stories. Joe and his world are brought to life by Templesmith’s style, and the character’s rough edges come through the panels with each expression and action he takes on the page.

What Pops in “Ten Grand”

What really works in Ten Grand is the matter-of-fact way that the magic and supernatural elements are dealt with. Many urban fantasy or magic titles will try to make elements too grandiose at the start or push that “things are not what they seem” onto the reader. Joe’s level and knowledge of magic and the afterlife is street smart and patchwork, which fits the gritty artwork and the character’s voice.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7447:]]

There’s a great moment with the internet that shows just how integrated the other world is with ours, but again, I want you to read it for yourself to see.

Give It a Try

This isn’t a groundbreaking new concept, but it is an example of how to do a cross-genre story well. The characters are engaging, the stakes are high, and each page leaves you wanting more. This is the kind of comic I reach for when I go for the stands, so it might have really been written directly to my type of audience, but this is an opinion column after all. My opinion? Go find the first issue in print or digitally and soak it up until the next issue drops!

Review: Revival #1

Revival is the story of a small town in rural Wisconsin where, one day a year, the dead are brought back to life. Officer Cypress is a cop that’s in way over her head as a brutal murder sends the already crazy town into pure insanity.

The resurgence of horror and supernatural comics these past few years has really brought readers new and original stories. On the heels of series like Severed and Rebel Blood, Revival takes a twist on the undead genre with the feeling of a dense mystery novel. After only one issue an entire world of media and mystical frenzy is built around a small community trying to deal with a supernatural problem.

Tim Seeley and Mike Norton have written and drawn an opening story as tight as a pilot for a new one-hour drama TV series. Seeley’s story pacing sets a very good flow, and Norton’s art lays out the narrative in a very dynamic way.

On the whole this series gets a recommendation because it’s trying to do something different. It’s become a trend to try to mimic The Walking Dead model of comic book stories, and though Robert Kirkman does it well, many others don’t. Seeley and Norton are carving their own path and it’s well worth the time to give a try. That is if you like supernatural horror mysteries.

Review: Green Wake #10

This is sadly the last issue of Green Wake as the creative team is moving on to different projects. But don’t let that put you off from checking out this issue or this series. The story comes to a conclusion, but in no way is it rushed or forced upon readers. It ends naturally and with all of the precision of a TV show finale. What was originally supposed to be a five issue mini-series blossomed into twice that many issues, and I’m glad that we got all of that extra content.

In this final issue we see Morely Mack final discover the strange secrets behind the town of Green Wake and we’re given a glimpse at some horrifying supernatural elements. All of this story reminds me of a much more magical version of Silent Hill, where fantasy and horror blend together into a fine liquid mesh. Mack’s ending isn’t the showiest in all of comic book storytelling, but it definitely resonates and gives us a sense of closure at the end of the title.

The artwork in this issue was truly something fun to behold. It had a very distinct and scratchy style that added to the beauty of simple panels and the terror of the more gruesome ones. I really enjoyed all of the scenes that were set near and in water, and the creature designs were out of this world.

It’s sad to see a great Image series end, but it ended well. When the whole series is collected it’ll be a must buy for anyone who loves the supernatural or horror comic book genre. It might have ended a little sooner than planned, but it still went out with a bang.
