RAGEMOOR #1

Ragemoor! A living castle, nurtured on pagan blood, harborer to deadly monsters! A fortress possessed of its own will and ability to change itself, with the power to add and destroy rooms and to grow without the help of any human hand. Its owner is mad with jealously, its servants aren’t human, and its secret’s horrific!

* From the creators of Mutant World!

* A gothic nightmare à la Poe and Lovecraft!

“Richard Corben and Jan Strnad are like the Jack Kirby and Stan Lee of post-EC monster comics, responsible for classics like The Last Voyage of Sindbad and Mutant World. To see the two of them back together and a project like this is just exciting as hell.”  —Mike Mignola (Hellboy, B.P.R.D.)

  1. Anyone know what this is about?

  2. Paul Montgomery Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    In summation: CORBEN!

  3. Ah I forgot about this!

    Hopefully my store has an extra copy because I will so get this. It’s Corben for crying out loud!

  4. What a fantastic, and almost outlandish, concept. I’m really looking forward to this!

  5. I saw this art in the back of last weeks Conan and I instantly fell in love. Can’t wait to pick this one up.

  6. Sadly i’m just getting too many books at the moment (including two dark horse books this week), so this will have to be a tradewait for me :sadface:

  7. Sure why not ill try this out the premise alone sounds crazy

  8. I plan to pick up #1 and then if it is as cool as it seems I plan on grabbing the trade. Unless it blows my mind somehow, then I’ll pick it up monthly but my guess is this will be on my shelf as a trade.

  9. how could you read that solicit and not instantly buy this…. oh yeah some guy named corben is on it

  10. Looks interesting. I’ve got little else to get this week so why not try something new right?

    • That’s the spirit!

    • I’ve read it. Ragemoor has the atmosphere of Poe’s Fall of the House of Usher but presents a more physical rather than psychological threat to its main characters. I’m undecided as to whether this is great or not but I’m interested enough in the story and black and white art style to keep with it and see what happens in issue 2.

  11. This was bad. Bad as in terrible. The art is like a mix of 90’s era poorly rendered 3D faces, digitally “painted” on, and almost every panel has extraneous areas where blur is used with no reason or context. It looks like someone spilled little water drops on the art at random, smudging it in places. The writing is off and odd in most places… I guess to make it seem more interesting than it really is. oof. I’ll happily stay away from Castle Ragemoor… for good.

  12. Oh this was great! The story was crazy but the art by Corben was amazing. I don’t know if my budget can afford the rest of this but I will find a way to get an extra $3.50 a month.

    Although closer inspection shows some weird, digital effects in this issue. It didn’t hurt my thoughts on the book but it was noticeable.

    5/5

  13. was in the shop looking over the new releases when i spotted corben’s name. that alone made this a must have so i purchased it. one of the best decisions i made all day.

  14. I found this title to be very refreshing. The art and dialogue was almost comical. It’s like watching a bad b-movie. So much fun 🙂
