James Stokoe’s vision for Aliens: Dead Orbit is one of visceral terror. The Xenomorph is nightmare fuel, not because its origins are unknown, but because it spits in the face of what is natural. It laughs at what we know with absolute certainty to be true. They are an aberration of sex and sexuality. Aliens is a highly subversive creation, as it was with Giger’s art. It somehow, more than most things, captures the imagination of its viewers unlike most other cinematic monsters, because it is tangibly amoral. As a species, we mean nothing to it.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read a Mike Mignola book, so I thought I’d give this new run of Joe Golem: Occult Detective a try.

Otherwise, I don’t get a really good handle on who Joe Golem is in this first issue.

Superheroes. Death. Good versus evil. In the comic book world, it’s often you might find all of these characteristics within one comic book.
