(W) M.L. Miller
(A) James Whynot

On a journey to track down the grave of their estranged father, Maribel and Anthony find their way to the Malort Cemetery, a strange, seemingly abandoned field of mostly unmarked tombs. There they encounter an eccentric clan of grave-robbers who've devised a highly-addictive drug made from human remains--and the fresher the corpse, the stronger the dose. What started out as an attempt to reconnect with the past becomes a descent into a psychedelic, neon-colored nightmare, will Maribel and Anthony find their way through the hallucinogens or will they become the next hit? Written by M.L. Miller (Pirouette) and featuring mind-shredding artwork by new artist James Michael Whynot, Gravetrancers delivers a grisly grindhouse tale of taboo and terror.

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy

I'm supposed to use this space to review books, and hopefully recommend them. There could be a concern that I'm implicating myself in some capacity when I whole heartedly recommend a book where some truly unpleasant people use the remains of dead people as a drug. Starting with a 'Why this happens is true...' premise, welcome to the world of Gravetrancers, where a particular family has decided to smoke, shoot, and snort the dead for their intoxicating properties. A mix of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of 1000 Corpses, and Requiem for a Dream, we have a couple of 'regular' people thrown into this world. They have a bad day, then a bad trip, then worse. Standout work by new artist James Michael Whynot (hey, I didn't name him), and colorist Dee Cunniffe. Absolutely not for everyone. :)

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
