Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a horror comic! I have long been searching for a horror comic that not only delivers a few good chills, but also maintains a fun, yet serious tone, and I have finally found it in Ragemoor!
Ragemoor #1 tells the story of a castle built 3,000 years before Christ, on the blood, sweat, and tears of Pagans, and the family, or rather, remaining member of the family, who resides in it. But when a distant Uncle comes to claim the castle for his own with dubious intent, we quickly learn that the castle has a mind of its own!
With a very Edgar Allen Poe feel to it, this book reminds me a lot of the original horror classic, The Haunting. Fans of Tales from the Crypt should also get a kick out of this book as well, despite it deviating from the anthology format.
Richard Corben’s art looks great in this beautifully crafted piece. He maintains the tone of impending doom well in integrating the terrors into the castle’s very walls through the black and white inks. The story moves quickly and is just as fun a second time around as it was the first. For any horror fan this is a MUST buy, and for anyone in the mood for a fun story with a creepy edge to it, this was made with love (and blood) for you!
After just the first issue, I am already disappointed that this is only a four-issue limited series. Seriously, do yourself a favor and pick this up!!!
