Overview

A necromantic horror series about an upstart crime family trafficking in a new designer drug that’s just hit the market made from the ashes of the dead.

A new drug is sweeping through the streets of New Orleans—one made from the ashes of the dead. Wars are being fought over who will control the supply, and the demand is rising. While the various criminal factions collide, users begin to experience terrifying visions of the dead coming back to life...through them. Eisner Award-nominated author Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Empty Man) and illustrator Jonas Scharf team up for Bone Parish, a haunting blend of horror and crime that takes an unflinching look at how we connect to—and disconnect from—the world around us.

I enjoyed reading this original graphic novel. A New Orleans Crime family is making and selling a new designer drug. Others of course want in on the action but it will not be easy. Along with the crime story there is also a hint of the paranormal. The story and artwork are very dark, gory and graphic. This is not suitable for younger or sensitive readers. The mystery was interesting and I am looking for word to reading the next one.

Bone Parish vol.1 by Cullen Bunn, Jonas Scharf, Alex Gumaráes Bunn brings it down home with a Louisiana mob family dealing a drug with a necromantic twist. Bunn reveals a deft hand at crafting a believable family, the Winters, drug trafficking a product of their own design that delivers the experience of the dead, from whose bodies it is made, directly into the drug takers consciousness. When the big mob sharks (or rather alligators, this is Louisiana!) take note and want to dig into the Winters’ gumbo, what kind of war is going to take place when the dead don’t take their secrets to the grave. The art beautifully captures the differing characters, with family resemblance NOT confusing the characters. The streets of New Orleans in both morning desolation and evening bacchanalia come to life as the characters play through a pageant of connecting and disconnecting with what is real and what is of the dead as well as each other. Splash pages splash - literally and figuratively in one particular page! Pay attention to what the colorist has done from page to page to guide you through the land of the living and the dead and where those lines blur, often horrifically. Bone Parish vol. 1 is a rare comic where the story, art and color all tell the tale where the whole is greater than the parts.

There is a new drug in town in the horror/crime graphic novel, Bone Parish Vol 1. Just don’t ask what they make it out of… Ash is a new hallucinogen that allows user to experience someone else’s life. It is incredibly popular but also so strong it kills some inexperienced users. The creator and her family can’t keep up with demand—no matter how many gravediggers they hire. Ash is composed of the burned remnants of dead bodies. The more interesting the life story, the better the high. When the family’s profit becomes the talk of the drug underworld, other gangs try to take over the family’s business. The mixing of necromancy, New Orleans’ gothic atmosphere, and a noir crime family is almost as intoxicating as the drug, Ash. Bone Parish Vol 1 is concerned more with introducing the character’s stories and is rather short on plot in the middle section. However, the beautiful and atmospheric artwork makes the trip stimulating. The conclusion also promises more excitement in the next volume. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars! Thanks to BOOM! Studios and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
