Reviews - What do customers think about Lurkers?

Not the ghoulish fun one would hope for  Jul 5, 2005
It seems that since Steve Niles' 30 Days of Night became such a smash hit, his name can be seen on almost any horror comic under the sun. The Lurkers, from IDW and Niles' own Meeednight Pulp line, focuses around Detective Jack Dietz who stumbles upon what seems to be a bizarre grave robbery. Turns out that this is no ordinary grave robbery, and after a young child is murdered and apparently feasted upon, Dietz realizes that he is dealing with an otherworldly force, and that his own family might be in danger as well. The storyline and dialogue aren't bad one bit, but the teaming up of Dietz and a pack of ghouls/zombies against one renegade flesh eater comes out of nowhere and comes off as cheap. Not to mention that this TPB (collecting the four issue mini-series) is quite short (and this TPB is a bit overpriced as well, but IDW is famous for that), with no development involving Dietz or anyone he associates with. Hector Cassanova's art however is the Lurkers' saving grace, providing solid paints and plenty of blood and gore to add to the atmosphere. It could have been a lot worse, but for what it is, the Lurkers is a solid horror yarn as long as you don't expect much from it.
