Thanks to Image Comics for providing a copy for review.
Coffin Bound isn’t at all what you would think it’d be with the name it has, first of all we get this bone vulture slash robot man? Heck, even I’m still a little unsure of what he is. Or if he is a he at all. Anyway, for all sakes and purposes I’m just going to call it Vulture for this review.
Vulture wakes up a Izzy in a ramshackle house in the middle of nowhere, informing her that someone is coming for her. Well many someones are coming to kill her, while Izzy is dealing with three thugs. They let her know that she is already dead, the Eartheater has been sent upon her and once it has her scent there is no escape, it will find her and kill her.
Through the first half of Coffin Bound, the artwork is a little strange but not hard to like or follow along with, even though it can get shall we say gory? As the story continues with Izzy proclaiming “If the world will not have me in it, it cannot have me at all”, and saying she will die to get away from the Eartheater. All great quotes by the way, and ones I can definitely see myself saying them whenever someone pisses me off.
We start to meet some of the other players in Izzy’s life, such as the man who sees her as his muse. He also runs a strip joint, and I can with all certainty that I have never and will never see another pole dance as disturbing as the one they show. After the shiver and cringe inducing pole dance we learn that the man who sees Izzy as his muse and wants to save the day for her, is also the person who set the Eartheater on her. Beside the awful stripping pole horror dance, I’m just too curious for my own good and want to know what happens to Izzy and Vulture.
Coffin Bound #1 is now available.
