Scrimshaw #3 https://buff.ly/2xQSsVj is a 32-page, full color, action adventure comic created and written by Eric Borden, with art and colors by Dave Mims, and lettering by Spike O’Laochdha. Published by Alterna Comics & printed on newsprint.

Cornered in a dangerous Chinatown alley, Taipuitea is forced to unleash one of the most brutal beatdowns in all of comics! With assassins at every turn, can the crew of the Runaway Horse get out in one piece?

Distinctive line work with sharp edges gives this comic a unique look that pulls the eye in and invites the reader to scrutinize every panel in detail! The continuous line is used with great effect to give each character an individual appearance and pack subtle detail into backgrounds and settings. The skillful use of color, light, and shadow all enhance the aesthetic appeal of Scrimshaw by giving the comic a warm and inviting feel that holds the reader’s attention from beginning to end!

Review: Sick in the Head by Alexander Gustafsson

 

Sick in the Head https://buff.ly/2fyGtoK is an 80-page, B&W, humor horror comic for mature readers written and illustrated by Alexander Gustafsson.

A film producer past his prime and his gun toting nephew find themselves up against the supernatural when their latest lesbian vampire flick takes a turn for the weird! While filming and arguing with an apprehensive actress, an unexpected fanged fiend crashes the set with a hunched backed henchman and undead killer in tow! Soon the line between the real and celluloid worlds blurs as mayhem ensues, big breasted vampires get poked with wood, and body parts began to fly! This ain’t your normal horror movie comic spoof, this is Sick in the Head!

Alexander does a great job of making fun of traditional horror movie tropes while telling an original story loaded with giggle worthy gore and brutal bustle! The story takes some really unexpected turns that gives Sick in the Head a fresh and marked departure from many other comics that fall into predictable territory. Everything from the underlining concept driving the plot to the cartoonish art come off as crisp and different. This is a fun and silly story for grownups!
