Blood Horn was originally serialized in issues 1-5 of the Reptile House anthology (the most recent issue of which I cover here) but gets the deluxe collection treatment in an appropriately metallic cover. It’s the fluid-drenched saga of the band Blood Horn assembling to compete at a climactic battle of the bands in a Philadelphia bus station.
Bunch doesn’t let a molecule of page go to waste. Heavy black ink corrals the action. Panels are strewn with beautiful filth.
In among the visual assault the writing is sharp. Off-hand jokes scurry through the scenery. Characters are lovable and awful. All the right blood gets spilled. Blood Horn delivers transgressive underground mayhem with supreme style.
