Driver For The Dead is a new Radical Comics release, written by John Hefferman (writer of Snakes On A Plane, which I haven't seen, but if you didn't like that movie, don't let that deter you from checking out his comic book debut!) and artist Leonardo Manco, that features a tough as nails hearse driver, voodoo, and is just all around one of the best horror comics in recent memory.
Here's a dialogue exchange from Driver For The Dead #1, which will give you an idea of the tone of this comic:
"But the people don't know what monsters really are out there. Don't know what's really waitin' in their backyards, just itchin' to get in. So They all do the dance. The cops shake down the thugs, and the people thank the cops, and don't neither one of them have the first damn idea who the real monsters are. But I do."
"Dark? Hell, the sun don't even set for another six hours."
As the cover image and interior page from Driver For The Dead, that I have accompanying this entry shows, artist Leonardo Manco (who has done many great comics over the years, but one of my favorite comics he did early in his career was Hellstorm , which he did for Marvel with Warren Ellis) doesn't fool around and every page is as great as what you see here. Driver For The Dead is a three issue mini series, with 56 pages for only $4.99!
Oh and for those of you keeping count, such as my statistics friend, Joel, this Ich Liebe Comics! entry is my official 500 entry (a couple of months ago I thought I was up to 500, but that included drafts I didn't finish and delete)!
