Synopsis: A necromantic horror series about an upstart crime family trafficking in a new designer drug that’s just hit the market made from the ashes of the dead.
A new drug is sweeping through the streets of New Orleans—one made from the ashes of the dead. Wars are being fought over who will control the supply, and the demand is rising. While the various criminal factions collide, users begin to experience terrifying visions of the dead coming back to life…through them. Eisner Award-nominated author Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Empty Man) and illustrator Jonas Scharf team up for Bone Parish, a haunting blend of horror and crime that takes an unflinching look at how we connect to—and disconnect from—the world around us.
My Thoughts: I found out about this comic from my good friend Jenna @ J.K. I’m Exploring. She told me she had just got a horror comic from Netgalley. I was super intrigued and then I read the summary and knew I had to check this out.
I ended up really enjoying this. I thought the story was so interesting. I mean a drug that is made from the ashes of dead people, that is just so crazy to me. Plus your trip is basically you putting yourself in their shoes. I think that’s so wild. I really wanted to learn more about how it works. I do hope in the later volumes that it goes more into detail about that. I am very curious.
I also really liked the location this story takes place in. I feel New Orleans is the perfect place for a drug like this to be sold. It really fits perfectly with the vibes of New Orleans. It’s such a great creepy location. It really adds to the story.
The only thing I didn’t really like about the story is it felt a little jumpy. I feel one thing was happening then we quickly jumped over to another part in the story. I was a little confused at times. I feel with this story I just wanted things a bit more explained to me.
Overall I ended up really enjoying this comic. It was right up my alley. It left me wanting more. I really want to learn more about the product and have the story go more into detail about how it’s made and why it affects people the way it does. After I finished it I looked up the comic and the next volume doesn’t come out until September. So far away. I might pick up the individual issue but I usually like getting the full volume. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.
*I got a free copy of this comic from the publisher on Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.*
