Thomas’ Pick of the Week — Locus #1
Page Count: 28
Issue one begins the first three-issue story arc, in which a half-human, half-succubus girl named Locus tracks down the first of her father’s killers–a man named Loco, holed up in a bar in the middle of the Arizona desert. But is Loco more than he appears to be?
A half-succubus, half-human girl with a cursed sword and a foul mouth. An invisible, inhuman killer she calls “Uncle Spook”. Werewolves. Vampires. Necromancers. Succubi. And more. So much more. Welcome to the world of Locus. Locus is an ongoing horror series broken up into three-issue stories full of Boobs, Blood and Bad Language ™. If you’re weary of all the tired old horror-movie cliches, then Locus is what you’ve been looking for. This series is for the hardcore horror fans who like a little back-story tucked into all the violence. Tweenies who prefer their vampires all sparkly and romantic will be disappointed, as will those people who like their horror stories full of annoying, hipster college kids with unlimited cell phone coverage. On the other hand, if you’re one of those people who believe a horror story should have a lot of naked breasts, snarling monsters and profanity…welcome home! Written and drawn by former Kiss 4K writer/artist Adam Black, Locus is a showcase for the kind of comics Adam likes to make when left to his own devices, uncensored and unbound.

Thomas says, “This is one of your out of the movies type action stories. Picture A Kick Butt Girl with wild hair/Seemingly trained by strange smiley faced dude/Her uncle gets killed by what later turns out to be werewolves that are looking for her and SPECIAL sword. Oh yeah, she wants to know why. What more could you want? How about the fact she likes to fight half-nekkid! What we’ve got here is the beginning of a cool story along with great art… Oh, did I mention the topless part?”
