From horror icon Wes Craven, director of Scream and Nightmare On Elm Street comes his first comic book series. Wes Craven writes the series with Steve Niles, bringing two horror masters together for the first time. Says Craven: "About a year ago I had the beginning of an unwritten joke come into my head: A Vampire, a Werewolf and a Zombie walk into a bar... Just that. My imagination went crazy thinking about what could happen when three such impossibly different characters were thrown together. I met with comic book legend Steve Niles. We hit it off, and decided to work out the story of a very special young man's coming of age, and the two unlikely friends who helped him to survive it. After a bit of hard, fun work, a series of comic books were born, telling the story of how these three ended up on the run together, and how the central character, Ritchie, lost his innocence and became one of the most powerful vampires in the world."

    This is, without a doubt, one of this year’s must read books. I am astonished by this plot, surprised by its start, excited for more, and emotional just thinking about Wes Craven in general. Thank you, sir, for everything you have given us. We will always remember you—in the scariest of ways. Read Full Review

    When the protagonist heads to a local bar, we see more of the horror themes that Craven promised when he came up with the concept of "A Vampire, a Werewolf and a Zombie walk into a bar"" as we meet all three by the end of this issue. That's the concept for this series, but it's a better as a concept than is realized in the actual story. Coming of Rage is planned for a five issue series, but I'm afraid that I won't be back for the remainder. If the idea of this series is to see what happens when a vampire, a werewolf and a zombie walk into a bar, I'm no longer interested in finding out. Read Full Review
