Bone Parish Heads to Full Series

BOOM! Studios has announced today that Bone Parish, an all-new addictive necromantic horror series from superstar writer Cullen Bunn and artist Jonas Scharf, has earned a full series order of twelve issues in advance of its debut in comic shops on July 25th due to the overwhelming early response from retailers and fans.

Bone Parish follows the proliferation of a new drug sweeping through the streets of New Orleans—one made from the ashes of the dead. Wars are being fought over who will control the supply, while the demand only rises. While the warring factions collide, users begin to experience terrifying visions of the dead coming back to life—through them. And at the heart of it, one family must decide how far they’re willing to go to connect – or perhaps disconnect – from the world around them as this dangerous conflict escalates in shocking ways.

Review: Dark Ark #7

The monstrous creatures of Shrae’s Ark have been tasked with protecting Noah and his flock. But the shocking nature of the creature that plague’s Noah may set the monsters of the Dark Ark at each other’s throats!

Dark Ark is an interesting spin on the Biblical tale of Noah focused on another ship whose task is to protect the monsters, aka evil, of the world.

For six issues we’ve seen Shrae deal with the politics of the boat and a murder mystery but Dark Ark #7 shifts things a bit as we go into the past to see Shrae building his ark and some of the world before the flood. There’s something that’s interesting about this aspect in that it humanizes Shrae and his family in a way we haven’t seen before. He’s a many who has been tasked with a mission and isn’t focused on the straight and narrow like his counterpart Noah.

Beyond that aspect we also get to see the next “big bad.” There’s a monster under the water that threatens Shrae and Noah. Shrae’s fate depends on Noah so while he’s kept his distance in the past things may be changing here. Writer Cullen Bunn mixes things up in a few ways adding some depth to Shrae and his family and sets things in a new and organic direction.

The art by Juan Doe is fantastic as always. There’s a horror aspect of it all and the monsters within look fantastic. There’s some great designs and the build up until that last page’s reveal is solid.

This series continues to rewrite what we know and delivers a horror tinged take on the Bible that’s engaging and interesting and keeps us on our toes.
