Today we recieved a review copy of the new title, brought to you by Top Cow and Image Comics, “Cutter” issue 1. This black & white comic is drawn by Christian DiBari and written by Robert Napton & Seamus Kevin Fahey reminds me a little of “The Walking Dead,” at least the artwork is reminiscent of the style used in TWD books. The cover (shown above) is one of the things that drew to wanting to read this book, I just looked the look of the cover.
The other thing that made me want to check out this title was the concept. When I first heard about it, the concept of a revenge horror book made me think to myself, ‘This will be fucking awesome.’
The description on the PREVIEWSworld site was, “What if that kid you and your friends picked on in your youth came back with a vengeance…to kill you and your friends? That dark guilt-ridden fear is at the core of CUTTER, a cautionary tale about the sins of your past coming back to haunt you. Jeremy lives a quiet life with his wife in a rural town. Successful and stable, Jeremy is the guy next door. But he and his high school friends share a dark secret. And when that secret literally comes back to haunt them, Jeremy must confront his past and his own sanity as he comes face to face with a vicious serial killer…”The Cutter.”
Reading the book however was a little confusing, it seemed to jump around to different scenes and times. But I am going to give it another issue before I say not to bother with this title, so I am hoping next weeks issue is a little better.
The art though is fantastic, the concept great, it is just the delivery of the material which in my opinion needs a little help. If you pick up a copy of this book on October 1 let us know what you thought of it. Did you like the way they delivered the material? Does the artwork remind you of TWD?
