Reviews - What do customers think about The Damned Volume 1: Three Days Dead (Damned)?
High Quality Storytelling Jan 16, 2008
Bunn nails the hard-boiled noir dialogue and narration without ever once resorting to cliche. At the same time he delivers a unique horror story with simple (i.e. non-convoluted) original concepts. Just plain great.
Not So Damned Oct 21, 2007
Imagine the idea of a Road to Perdition, except literally. A world of Prohibition era mobsters squabbling over territory, playing chess game over merchandise, and vying for power - a criminal underworld run, apropos enough, by demons. That is the world created by horror writer, Cullen Bunn, with The Damned. Brian Hurtt (Queen and Country, another fave book) delivers art reminiscent of Matt Wagner - a perfect blend of clean lines and moodiness - infusing each character with personality.
The Damned is a moody romp. Bunn has an ear for tough guy dialogue, and a feel for action pacing, while Hurtt's art alone is worth the price of admission. A blend of two of my favorite genres, gangland epic and horror, I hope this title gets extended well beyond its initial six issue run.
Damned - Good fun Sep 11, 2007
Take mobsters and tommy guns. Add demons, monsters, and a small-time fixer with a very interesting curse. Shake well, season with a femme fatale, and voila, you have The Damned: Three Days Dead. It's hard-boiled with spiky bits, and a great deal of fun. If you like noir with a little bit of a twist, you're enjoy the hell out of this.
