Introduction to the comic series:
The Offspring is a sci-fi, horror, drama, time-travel epic that circles around three friends who have spent their lives trying to get over the hardships and disappointments of the past. As Sara, Will and Vince grow closer, the evils around them grow more powerful, compelling them to overcome their own bad choices and do what they can to defeat the forces working to destroy all mankind.
Official Synopsis of Issue #1:
When three friends reunite after years apart, they realize their hometown is not the quiet burgh they once knew. Will, Vince and Sara must use their newfound abilities to rescue the children of their town from a man who will do anything to become immortal.
Spoiler Free Review of Issue #1:
“Correct Handed Productions” has made a horror comic book series that has the potential of becoming a successful superhero tale (without all the exaggeration and costumes) featuring a trio fighting the paranormal and helping the common folks through their “special abilities”. Issue one has been created, written, penciled, inked, and lettered by David Whalen. Colored by Jason Sylvestre.
The first issue introduces us to the leading characters, Blake Alternate School and shows a horrific plot that’s affecting children of the locality. We meet the leading characters Sara, Will and Vince but don’t get to see their abilities just yet as the initial character development takes place in the first half of this issue- “Crossroads”.
The plot here is not too complicated but takes some time and events to get the idea of what’s actually happening. The incidents shown at the start seem like the childhood trauma faced by a leading character and then, we see the grown up phase of that character. The events from the present time have a reference to the haunted “Crybaby Bridge” of Vermont State, USA. It tries to give one more logical reason of disappearance of people there.
The humor is subtle and not too much to overshadow the horror aspect. The overall horror factor is high as the themes are of chase, abduction and then the comic ends on a serious note as we get to see the real reason behind all of the happenings. There’s some paranormal element to that as well, besides some reference to the World War 2.
For an affordable price, I think this 28 pages horror comic book is satisfying and provides a thrilling and entertaining read. It keeps you on the edge of the seat and then leaves you wanting for more. The artwork adds emotions to the characters and doesn’t make you stop reading, no matter how grim the circumstances seem to be in a scene. That’s the perfect balance of horror and entertainment for mature audience! The follow up issue is as satisfying and even, improves the horror and story aspects, so please do read our review of Issue Two as well: Horror Comic Review – The Offspring Issue Two by Correct Handed Productions!
