Review: Twelve Devils Dancing Vol. 1

Twelve Devils Dancing

There is something so alluring to crime procedural dramas, that despite the gruesome details, you still want to see it to the end. This why Law & Order lasted so many years and why its offshoots have prospered. It also has generated an industry which has become fixated with its real-life true crime. Humanity’s obsession with the darker recesses of our minds is both peculiar and enthralling.

This is why the show The Following. was so magnetic. There was the strong performances of Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy and their undeniable chemistry. The show revolved around a recently escaped serial killer who creates a community to carry out random killings while toying with the retired special agent who put him in jail in the first place. The show does what good horror stories do make you uncomfortable while keeping you glued to the television. In Action Labs: Danger Zone‘s brilliant Twelve Devils Dancingwe get one such story where an FBI agent must correct his past mistakes.

We meet Callum Cooper, an FBI agent who has gotten a diagnosis that he is dying of a fatal disease one that derails his career permanently. Of course, this news doesn’t come at the perfect time as he has been chasing a serial murderer known as the Crypto Killer. The killer has started to leave “presents” for Callum’s attention which also draws in an innocent bystander Aisha Miller, a college student who is trying to escape her demons but decides to help.

Overall, the comic series is a penetrating thriller that will make the reader unsettled. The story by Erica Schultz is chilling, discerning, and well developed. The art by Dave Acosta, Andrew Covalt, and Kelly Williams is gorgeous. Altogether, a crime procedural that belongs in the great canon of murder mysteries.

Aberrant Season 2 Kicks Off in February

Rylend Grant has been busy. Not only has he been cranking out new movie screenplays, but he’s also put together a five-issue sequel to Aberrant. The comic is being developed for television by executive producer Tom Krantz.

Written by Grant the first issue of season two features art by Davi Leon Dias, color by Iwan Joko Triyono, and lettering by HdE. The covers are provided by Dias and Triyono.

Season 1 followed David Colbrenner, a U.S. Army Special Operations Commander whom, after losing his entire unit in a superhuman attack, waged a brutal one-man war on the eccentric billionaire and former superhero – Lance Cordrey – he believed to be responsible.

Season 2 starts with the realization that Cordrey was a patsy, and David’s men were actually killed as part of a vast government/military conspiracy. The nasty second season twist? If David is going to peel back the layers of said conspiracy, he’s going need Cordrey’s help.

Well-known for quirky variants – Season 1 covers included a hilarious parody of a classic Billy Dee Williams Colt 45 advertisement and not one, but two ALF-inspired fits – Grant promised not to disappoint with his season 2 covers. Season 2 brings a Top Gun/Playing with the Boys volleyball variant, a Karate Kid Part II:Live or Die? variant, and a Point Break meatball sandwich variant.

Preorder Aberrant – Season 2 #1 with the Diamond item code DEC181412. Preorder the special “Urinal” variant edition with Diamond item code DEC181413. Look for both in comic book stores February 2019 and PUT ABERRANT ON YOUR PULL LIST!
