There’s an absurd number of great comics out today but here’s one that hasn’t had too much advance buzz—maybe because author Gilbert Hernandez is SO DARNED PROLIFIC. Anyway, FATIMA: THE BLOOD SPINNERS #1 is his take on zombies, with an eyeball-squeezing mix of a deadly femme zombie hunter and mindless violence. It’s a four-issue miniseries and it also features alternate covers by Peter Bagge.

While brother Jaime is becoming the Proust of the comics, Gilbert Hernandez is becoming the Jodorowsky/Russ Meyers/Roger Corman, with a little Gabriel Garcia Marquez thrown in for good measure.

The blurb:

Comics luminary Gilbert Hernandez envisions his strangest, most thrilling future yet! A drug called “spin” offers the wildest trip imaginable, followed by its users’ inevitable, rapid deterioration into undead flesh eaters. Despite the side effect, the drug is so popular that the human population is dying out! With no cure to be found, the beautiful, lovesick Fatima may be the only thing standing between the survivors and the apocalypse. Get ready for four issues of zombies, drug lords, and gorgeous women!

Comments

  1. His compositions are mind-boggling. How does he create such depth and such flatness? It’s like one of those pictures where you can see the rabbit or the duck but never at the same time. Whenever I read Gilbert or Jaime’s work I wonder why I bother with anyone else’s… I mean it’s all there.

    Fletcher Hanks lives on….

  3. Joshua T. Morningtree says:

    I wanted to like this, but the lead and the zombies were too sexualized.
