Review: Soulless #1 by Kim Roberts, Chris Royal, James Johnson, Chunlin Zhao, and Ken Reynolds

Soulless #1

Soulless #1 https://buff.ly/2A1ksHb is a 32-page, full color, mature, supernatural horror comic created and written by Kim Roberts, penciled by Chris Royal, inked by James Johnson, colored by Chunlin Zhao, and lettered by Ken Reynolds. Published by Swamp Line Comics.

A holy man turned demon hunter assisted by a spell casting sidekick set off on a journey through the desolate southwest in search of soul collectors! Their quest puts them on the trail of a traveling carnival full of demons and evil clowns turning sleepy towns into ghost towns in preparation to unleash a larger evil!

The premise behind Soulless is a unique take on the creepiness that surrounds traveling carnivals and the eerie things they leave in their wake! The story is told from the perspective of the main character and we discover the unfolding supernatural events as he and his assistant seek them out. The writing is fresh and opens the door to a new side of horror that is rarely explored. The art is clean and polished. The line work, colors, shadowing, composition, and lettering all combine to make Soulless #1 a visually dynamic and pleasing comic!

In Baron Ubenstein, Troy Vevasis and Saul Haber start this series of scary stories off with a short haunting tell of a long dead castle owner that crawls out of the shadows to reclaim what is his!

Then in Blizzard, Jack Wallace, Dan Lauer, and Chris Allen ensure a greedy explorer gets a chilly surprise when dismisses native lore in the deep recesses of a dark cave!

Later in Festering Madness, Chris Gates, Chandra Kelly, Robert Nugent, and Nikki Sherman share a bullied boy’s anguish as he turns to a special friend that offers to help him solve his problems once and for all!

After that we’re treated to a little futuristic debauchery titled Georgie Porgie, from the talented and depraved mind of James Johnson!

Then we step inside Hell House, where Jack Wallace, Francesco Conte, and Chris Allen send us on a treasure hunt that unearths a family secret!

Paul Bradford and Matt Olsen take us out to sea in High Seas: Undead People, a blood fest wrapped around zombie pirates!

Following a nuclear accident in southern Spain, Edgar Ascensão, Rafael Oliveira, and Raquel Rodrigues give us a horde of melting flesh beings in Invasion, and they’re devouring everyone in their path!

And to close things out we take a look Under the Bed, where Bryan Hoover, Ron Joseph, Jake Isenberg, and E.T. Dollman hide an unsuspecting guest to tuck us in tight!

Each story in this anthology offers a fresh take on timeless terrors. Between the pages there are well written tales of creepy things in the dark, creatures hidden out of sight, and conspirators plotting evil deeds! The art spans many styles, each rendered with a level of skill and talent that brings these tales of trepidation to life! The various writers, illustrators, and colorists provide an eerily enjoyable range of styles that clearly distinguish one story from the next and make Tomb of Horror #2 a great read just in time for the Halloween season!
