In spite of my recent foray into kids comics, the thing I wrote just before Scratch9 was an on over-the-top pulp-style crime book filled with splatter violence and mean-spirited humor called The Revenant. I had so much fun writing it, it stands as one of my favorite works after my buddy cat.
The book was based on source material created by Shannon Eric Denton and Keith Giffen and it helped launch the career of the amazing artist Mateus Santolouco!
Now it’s back in print, courtesy of Komikwerks, LLC and available exclusively on Amazon.com!
“…rocketing a pulp comic straight into the 21st century. Who is the Revenant and why is he after these mob people is all a part of the unfolding mystery – a welcome graphic novel you’ll read in one shot. For those looking for a complete story that will enthrall you’ll be hard pressed to find a better book than THE REVENANT and it is easily a 4-star book.”
“…a modern run at the world of pulp adventures and the old tale of criminals who sell out their own”
“Cinematic in its telling, the book is at its heart a gorefest (the aquarium kill in particular is a gruesome treat), but with its whodunnit trail of clues it owes almost as much to Detective Comics and Dick Tracy as it does to Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Rue Morgue Magazine
“THE REVENANT is a darkly humorous and thrilling tale that consistently keeps the reader laughing, guessing and horrified at nearly every turn. This books manages to blend the classic ghost-takes-revenge story idea, a whodunnit mystery and plenty of action sequences into a seamless, fast-paced and immensely enjoyable read.”
Comics Waiting Room
“The Revenant is a great mixture of genres and Mat Santolouco’s art is almost a genetic match for Rob Worley’s plot.
Grade: no-brainer A”
