"Dark Heat shows many familiar influences, and also touches upon psychological and spiritual themes that remind me of The Sopranos, Psycho, Paul Auster, The Watchmen, Fletch, Taoism and a whole lot of good movies that have Steve Buscemi and/or Viggo Mortensen in them. This story begins in gritty realism, and ends with a postmodern exploration into what's real and what's not."

I've been a fan of horror comics and graphic novels since the original Weird Tales. Barry Graham and Vince Lerue have stretched the genre into something new and different. The story is as dark and surreal as anything Lovecraft could have written and Vince Lerue's black and white graphics are unique--they transcend typical graphic novel artwork the way Dali transcended Rembrandt. They are a perfect complement to Graham's story of a man's descent into the depths of his own mind amid the desolation and heat of a moribund city. Both the story and graphics explore themes that the other graphic novels aren't aware of but narrative and characters are never sacrificed for the 'deeper stuff'--the graphics and story catch you from the beginning, suck you in and don't let go until the end.
I hope I see more from these two but in any case I'm hanging on to this one.
