Chased by an unstoppable killer, Izzy Tyburn has decided that if the world won't have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She's re-treading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash, and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way. Out in August. Pre-order now. Definitely one to check out. I am jealous at its filthy strangeness. Like finding a weird Alex Cox meets Jodorowsky road movie you didn't know existed. Watters spins a fantastic Kerouac-Ian fever dream with Dani dropping some story chops, solid gesture and moody blacks.
It's a great hook that will take you Under. Coffin Bound Rules! I can hardly think of another story so fully infused with Dan Watters and Dani aesthetic.
And the language style Watters launches here is just wonderful-I summon Milch because it's eccentric and neo-antique like his DEADWOOD speech, rippling with character and drunken with its own pleasure Coffin Bound is a damned joy. A slice of apocalyptic dreamtime cut with engine smoke, acid nihilism and dirty juju. This is some top-class necrofuel, my friends, and you need it in your brain-tank pronto.
You should give it a read. Dani's art is gorgeous as always! I just want moreeee. Make sure they get this fo more. Overall, I really enjoyed reading the first issue of Coffin Bound 1. Aside from the part of the comic in the middle that was a bit confusing, it did an incredible job setting up the direction that the entire series will take. Given the way the comic ended, learning more about Izzy will surely be a highlight of the series. The sinister force that's after her showed just how terrifying and dangerous he can be.
It looks like Izzy and The Vulture are in for quite a road trip and I will surely be picking up future issues. Read Full Review. A stunning debut,Coffin Bound 1drops this grave tale into gear, promising an unforgettable, high-octane joyride. Absurd, twisted, and intense, Coffin Bound is a must-read series. With inspired character designs and an intriguing premise, the first issue of Coffin Bound is too cool to not be a part of your pull list.
Without substantial background or backstory, Simpson and Dani are throwing the readers directly into the end of everything with a story set in a world that no longer makes a whole lot of sense.
The reflection of life and death is thrown into a deeply enjoyable adventure horror drama. Izzys a fun character. From the first installment, we know that shes not going to be successful unless shes dead. Judging from the opening act, its going to be a hell of a journey to her death.
Coffin Bound is a highly literary, nihilistic tryst through an incredibly stylish fantasy world. All of the creators involved are doing top-tier work, building an impressively singular story with this comic.
The artwork provides the pivot against which grim and phantasmagorical elements mix and turn. Danis AD strong line-work provides a firm base against which to make sense of the surreal storytelling. The artists decision to shift among grotesque, dreamy, and crime noir notes builds on the comic's unapologetic nature. And, Brad Simpson Fair Lady uses hot colors such as orange during daylight and deep reds and purples at night to transform the desert into a foreboding and fickle character in its own right.
Coffin Bound 1 is a great first issue that gives enough to keep you wanting to come back for more, but fails in one small aspect that its promising, action. Advertising it as, Cars! Other then these two moments we aren't treated too much of ultra violence that seemed to be abound. But with its amazing world building, characters, ideas and art that lack of violence isn't all that bad.
Choreographed violence, philosophical mutterings, and an unhealthy dose of horror. Coffin Bound is a treat for modern post-apocalyptic action fans and comic craft enthusiasts. Not for the squeamish. A strong launch of a crude and absurd world that promises an intriguing ride through a proactive protagonist and a clear thematic perspective. Coffin Bound is an unapologetic thrill-ride set in a weirdly poetic marriage of film noir and 90's grunge. Writer Dan Watters' larger story feels familiar with its single protagonist fighting against a world out to get her while the details in the execution take a few unexpected turns, which helped keep things fresh.
The main reason I urge you to read this is because it provides something incredibly different from the usual cut-and-paste style of storytelling. As the name suggests, the main character is bound for the coffin. There is no escaping death for any of us, but what does an individual do with that knowledge? And ultimately, how does it make the reader feel to have them know the end of the journey before it even begins?
The bleakness of mortality envisioned in weird road trip of a tale. Coffin Bound has a dream-like quality to it, a crazy drug-induced dream, but still a lot of twisted fun. Its a cool story with a compelling protagonist and a terrifying antagonist.
Its a world where anything can, and probably will happen. The world may seem familiar, but this story is not. Its a refreshing new twist on the genre, and its one that Im along on the ride for. Coffin Bound 1 is a comic that looks cool and knows it thanks to Dan Watters' dark sense of humor, Dani's take no prisoners visuals, and Brad Simpson's scorched Earth color palette. It suffers a little bit when it gets away from the cat and mouse game between Isabel and Earth Eater, and sometimes the dialogue is a little bit up it's own ass.
But it's nice to see a comic that's not afraid to get its hands dirty in an age of house art and polished sheen. Character development is important to a new book. You must click with a character in order to pick up the next issue. Doesnt mean you have to like them; you can hate them but still may be interested in what happens to that character. Was it enough to pull me in? Yes and No. I like the story, I like the direction its going, the artwork is fun. Yes, I am interested and will pick up issue two. Coffin Bound reminds me of many Image Comics titles from the last decade but not in a way that makes it feel classic.
Instead, it seems incredibly derivative with a hodge-podge of worn-out tropes. It tries very hard to be dark, weird, and exciting, but falls short and just feels like a labored and failed attempt. It is entirely possible the rest of the series will be at least somewhat entertaining, but this first issue doesn't make me too hopeful. I read the ashcan and had no idea what was going on. I assume there is more in the full issue of 1 that will help to clarify, but it certainly didn't entice me to check out the series.
You're right, it was almost as bad as your comment. I guess I might as well give up now if I can't please anonymous nobodies on the internet. This book is great. I'm not sure why some are iffy? Baffling to me. I read this because I too am Coffin Bound. Too relatable. If you want Kurt Cobain in comic form. Give it a try. I originally didn't pick it up because I was unfamiliar with the creative team, but after seeing that both Kieron Gillen and Warren Ellis recommend it, I decided to pick it up.
It was pretty good. If you like David Lynch, you will most likely enjoy this. If not, this isn't for you. I can't tell if it was genius or just disgusting. Hey, why can't it be both? The emotionally distant dialogue didn't jive with an emotional moment, oddly enough. It kind of reminded me of a shittier version of East of West. It was okay at best. This comic baffles me, I don't know may be I find it too hard to get the setup in which all of this is taking place. Some scenes were really terrifying it could give one nightmares.
Characterisation is not bad but for once I thought some of the characters to survive throughout this series as they seemed important at first because the author really took his time in developing them only to remove them off from the story as soon as he could, like it was done to make the antagonist, EarthEater appear scary enough.
