Title: Roadkill Zoo TP
Writer: Nicole Jones
Artist: Budi “Buddy” Setiawan
Publisher: Novaris Entertainment
The story is a group of college kids and two Southern men get attack by undead voodoo priest and his magical roadkill.
Admittedly, I’m not a huge fan of horror stories and while the art was good and the concept’s interesting, it didn’t really impress me. College students as the main characters for a horror story is over-used in my opinion (how come there’s never any horror stories taking place at a retirement home?) especially considering that they seem to fit certain types of characters such as the ‘bitch’ and the ’senstive guy’. However, Jones did a very good job telling the story.
Art-wise, like I said earlier, Setiawan did a very good job. The black and white art worked very nice and Setiawan was very good with not over-looking aspects that an artist may missed if this book was colored.
If you’re a huge fan of horror films and stories, you’ll enjoy Roadkill Zoo. Setiawan does a great job with the art and Jones is very capable. However, for non-horror fans, the creative team needed to develop the story more but if another offering comes from the pair, it should be good.
