Black Mist

 BNV3   (Caliber, 1998)

™ and ©1994 Ken Meyer Jr.

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

The mini-series, titled “Anguish of the Mist,” tells how Christian Allen, a U.S. soldier taken prisoner as the Great War draws to a close, “dies” as a result of an experiment by German doctors, becoming a monstrous being roaming the German trenches, and slaughtering soldiers with a black, acidic mist. Allen’s inner struggle to overcome the monster he has become is not original but is handled well. The second issue has a guest appearance by Caliber hotshot Kilroy. The regular series is part of the Caliber Core group of titles and directly follows the events in the Red Diaries mini-series. Dr. Lonnie Talbot’s corpse is stolen by Thugs (the cult, not gangsters), revived as an avatar of the Goddess Kali, and let loose on the ills of modern society with a kiss of death and swirling, acid mists. An above average use of an old, old plot. Worth a look. ~WW
