Tag is a horror comic that tells the story of Mitch, an angry man whose loveless relationship with Izumi (his on-again, off-again girlfriend) has just ended, again. They're leaving the restaurant when a shambling horror runs up to him, touches him in the chest and shouts, "Tag, you're it!" Immediately, Mitch begins to die, his bodily functions shutting down, even though he remains able to walk and even talk (when he remembers to draw a breath). He and Izumi confront his death -- the rigor mortis, the rotting -- together, trying to figure out what happened to him. They find answers on a blog, where an earlier "tag" victim explains the rules by which this odd strain of zombiism is spread.
Tag comes from Boom Studios, written by Keith Giffen and illustrated by Kody Chamberlain and Chee. It has many resonances with The Ring and other stories that revolve around understanding the "rules" governing the creeping awfulness at the heart of the story. Like The Ring, Tag uses its gimmick to tell a damned fine tale about love and betrayal, a story with many layers that are peeled back as the story moves to a moving climax.
Death Valley: a graphic novel that's like John Hughes vs George Romero
Zombie Tales: comics anthology
Jean-Paul Gaultier’s “JPG” jacket is covered in scenes from a four-color, vintage horror comic. I can’t tell if the comic is “real” (that is, if it was once a comic-book) or a simulacrum.
When I was a kid, I was terrified of farting in class. At home, it was no big deal: it was a daily fart festival with my family. But at school? TOTAL FEAR OF FLATULENCE. But then it dawned on me: EVERYBODY FARTS. And that’s one of the reasons why I’ve decided to write a graphic novel about how our bodies work. It’s about all the stuff that goes on inside our bodies daily, or throughout our lives, and that this stuff – whether it’s digestion, or respiration, or defecation – is necessary for us to live. And it gives you excellent come-back material if anyone teases you for farting in school!

The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its first generation predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. What’s so cool about it? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing a statoc 2D image.
