HOPE... for the Future - Guy Adams & Jimmy Broxton
« on: 19 November, 2018, 07:25:45 pm »
This slim volume reprints about 60 pages of the occult detective thriller is the american comic size format. The aged cover & graphic design set the tone a treat. I remember this thrill in the weekly prog, it felt like a dense, atmospheric piece probably closest in tone to Fatale by Sean Philips & Brubaker. I couldn’t really follow it in the weekly, maybe there was a gap during its initial run or my memory’s crap. As s graphic novel it’s a stunner. It’s the Hellblazer comic I always wanted but rarely got - truely horrible, addictive and grubby. The art is classy - Spot on storytelling with great faces & locations. I really hope Tharg gets round to ordering another series. Guy Adams makes every page count. I guess there’s similarities with Absalom, but the tone is different enough make this distinctive. I think it’s a modern classic!
