Blackgas (Warren Ellis…)

 BLWE   (Avatar, 2006)

™ and © 2006 Warren Ellis
Black and white series.

It’s the oldest horror story in the world: a young man takes his wary girlfriend up to his parents’ cabin in the woods. Aware of this, the couple jokes about the cliché—but when the very earth seems to split open, and an ordinary neighbor turns into a savage killer, they’re not laughing anymore. Suddenly the mysterious history of the young man’s town, and the origins of its name, are vitally important if they want to get home alive.

Even familiar setups turn convention on its ear when they’re penned by Warren Ellis. The writer is joined by Max Fiumara, whose pencils convey the proper real-life feel with dark shadows pressing at the edges.
