Come Into Me #1

Mar 14, 2018

“Cronenbergian” is an adjective that gets thrown around a lot in comic books. If a book has even a touch of psychosexual undertones or a bit of body horror, we are quick to slap the label on it just to let people known we’ve seen Videodrome once or twice. But unlike those books, Come Into Me #1 truly nails the gets-under-your-skin vibe of the auteur’s filmography and then stylishly pours it onto the pages of a comic, reveling in the dread, obsession, and character building that other books tend to ignore. The best kind of horror holds a mirror up to the world that it inhabits, and Come Into Me #1 holds that mirror uncomfortably close, and never once allows us to look away.

Nov 27, 2019

Vertigo may be shuttered, but the spirit of one of its icons is alive and well in the pages of John Constantine: Hellblazer.
