Coffin Bound #1 was a blast. The story of a young woman on the run. For her life. Accompanied by a talking vulture skull in a birdcage. Followed by a beast of a being that can smell the earth and detect things. Wow.

Issue #2 of this Image title just carries on from there. The heartless people searching for perfection in human form! Symmetry in relentless pursuit! Coffin Bound is one of my ‘must-read’ titles already, and I’m pretty picky about that. My time is valuable, so is yours, and so is Izzy’s, the lead character. She only has so much of it.

I’m making much of Coffin Bound for a reason. It’s strongly and uniquely original. There are more ideas in one issue than in most comics, and the synergy of these ideas, spun like a tightly wound web, powers us to want to read more, more.

The book is written by Dan Watters, drawn by Dani and coloured by Brad Simpson.
Really powerfully imaginative from story, to art, to colours. Bravo, and see you next issue!

Image, Coffin Bound #2, $3.99 for 31 pages of content. Mature

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
