On the Racks #1: Warlock

Surprising to believe I'm in my ninth month of blogging on this site and I've yet to write about or review a mainstream comic. Well, now is a good time to start.

Check out Warlock #1 by Bluewater Comics. It's based on the cult Lionsgate film of the same name. But more importantly, the artist on Warlock is none other than Jacob Bear.

You may remember Jacob as my early collaborator on CounterTERROR. Jacob designed CT's killer logo and many of his layouts made it into the final cut of the finished pages drawn by Stefano Cardoselli. Drawing Warlock was one of the reasons Jacob had to bow out of drawing CT, which is certainly understandable.

Jacob's been trying to break into the industry for a while now, so it's nice to see him on commercial property like Warlock.


Written by Nick Lyons, art by Jacob Bear, covers by Bear and Matt Bellisle.

A new story from the cult film Warlock from Lionsgate. The Warlock is on a mission to destroy a book that contains a spell which imprisoned six other Warlocks. If the book manages to be destroyed, the dangerous Warlocks would be released back into the world free to cause chaos and destruction. It's up to a rag-tag group of people to prevent the Warlock from carrying out his plan.

32 pages, $3.99.
