I don’t read comics very often, and when I do, I’m lucky enough that my comic book geek friends often recommend me the best of the best.
Last weekend, I read the first issue of Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, and I have to say, I’m in love. The artwork is gorgeously Gorey-esque (and, well, gory), the characters are oddball and charming (what’s not to love about a sentient maggot who possesses the body of a corpse?) and the glimpses of backtory fascinating. If you’re into humorous horror, this comic will be just your ticket.
Yeah, it’s not a romance novel, but comics are pretty damn trashy, right?
