Penny Dreadful #1 Review

Penny Dreadful #1 (Titan Comics)

Based on the dark gloomy Victorian horror TV show created by John Logan (can be a little too much for some). With the greatest fearful characters in history shown within the episodes, It is a must watch for anyone who dare watch.

Great first issue from Titan (this could have been done much earlier) But it's now here & i'm excited to have a copy. There are a few variants of this book (the reg. cover is one of the best) I have cover c above. They all show Vanessa in one way or another.

After Vanessa has been talking to her ghostly sister (she tell Vanessa to save her from the master, As he feeds on her blood). Sir Malcolm Murray reluctantly hear's Vanessa's plea for help & decides to help.
A pack of possessed wolves attack the stage-coach, Kill the drivers & bite the legs out from under the horses. Sir Malcolm shots & kills the majority of them, One gets away & returns to it's masters. A group of vampires rip the lone wolf apart.

Brilliant artwork by Louie De Martinis although it is very dark but true to the TV characters & written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, Nothing new here really but those who are new to PD then it would be a good start.
Mature readers only.

Rating: 8/10


  1. I skipped it because I was afraid it would follow the TV storylines too closely.

    I love that show. Nice review, Gil!

  2. Yeah! I'll stick with for a few issues to see where it heads.
