Kool Komics: Hotwire: Requiem For The Dead
December 24, 2008 § Leave a comment
So, I saw this book pop up on a forum and then I read what it was about and then hurried up to make that I then read every damn thing I could find on the internet about it! Here’s the premise:
“Hotwire: Requiem For The Dead,” written and illustrated by Steve Pugh, from a story by Warren Ellis, hits shelves in February 2009. According to the official press release, the four-issue miniseries is described as "taking place in a near-future when ghosts, or ‘blue lights’, roam the city streets. Most remain harmless until a break-in at London’s Maximum Security Necropolis triggers a surge of violent, brutal hauntings. Enter Alice Hotwire, the local police force’s resident Detective Exorcist—a job her fellow officers hate her for. It’s a responsibility she doesn’t want, in a world she doesn’t understand, but she may be the only one who can save them all from ectoplasmic catastrophe."
Kool right? Im excited because, think about it, when was the last time a really kick ass story about ghosts come out???…Ghostbusters? MAYBE Ghostbusters 2…it’s about time! And as I’ve said before with Warren Ellis invovled you can usually expect twisted kool stuff to happen.
Here are a couple of panels and stuff I stole from random internet sources:
