Without spoiling, we review the horror comic book, “Discordia 0” which is full of scary visuals, interesting story, and a very dark setting.
Now on sale from the official website, the comic is Created by Kristopher Jerome and Patrick Buermeyer. Published by Dark Tidings Press, LLC, An indie publisher of speculative fiction based out of Albany, Oregon. Dark Tidings Press focuses on Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Horror, both in prose and comics!
THE FALL WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING
A kingdom ruled by monsters. A continent ravaged by plague. An empire conquered by fascism. The lands of Discordia are welcome to no travelers, but an alcoholic veteran and his companions must find a missing girl who is the key to a secret cabal’s plot to restore order to the world.
Discordia #0 is a comic collection of horror shorts brought to you by the same team that successfully funded Tarnished, an epic fantasy graphic novel, on Kickstarter last year.
Created by Kristopher Jerome and Patrick Buermeyer, Discordia Issue #0 is the launching point for a future ongoing horror series from Dark Tidings Press.
Discordia 0 horror comic has a combination of stories about an alternate history consisting of a group which uses a drug that’s an essence of the emotion, “despair”. We see the events ranging from hauntings at a home, fights at a bar, and even a war with supernatural beings.
Every story has a brief description about it before we get to see the comic pages. The main theme of Discord and rebels is consistent throughout the comic book. The first story was about a spirit that feeds on the despair of people, and causes a lot of horror wherever the spirit visits.
The second story is about a war which the readers would have never seen. A war where the supernatural creatures overtake even the well equipped & planned army. The following stories explore life after a pandemic like situation. But more precisely, it is about how the real life horror of suppression is combined with paranormal horror resulting in an extreme level of horror as this is “An anti-capitalist anti-fascist horror comic” as described by the creators. We see how paranormal creatures are becoming like zombies seen in zombies show, attacking anyone from any side of the narrative. We get to see how difficult it is to trust anyone during such situations. Then there is a story of a bar fight gone wrong, which adds a bit of humor yet ends up in a mess.
The horror comic book has a unique style to it. It is made with care, and the drawings are very detailed. The colors have a dark tone to them yet are vivid. The dialogues are precisely written with situations doing most of the explaining about the story. The lettering, and illustrations are perfect. The comic is definitely for a mature audience due to its graphic content, and disturbing situations.
In conclusion, Discordia 0 is a horror comic book that’s scary, enjoyable, and full of surprises. It makes you invested in the story behind the horror that’s happening in the comic book, while the situations continue to scare you & entertain you. Highly recommended for all horror fans.
More about the world featured in the horror comic-
What is Discordia?
Discordia is the name given to the continent of Odessa that was formerly controlled by the Concord, a fascist empire that united the people of Odessa against the monsters that plagued their world. After its mysterious downfall, reality seemed to shift in the provinces of the Concord, leading to even more horrific monstrosities than ever existed before.
For this series, we wanted a fully fleshed out secondary world like you would expect in an epic fantasy series, but for horror!
Each country/province has its own history, unique monsters, and level of involvement with the war against the Concord. Think of Odessa as a fictional Europe/Asia before and during WWII from a technological and political standpoint. Some of the countries were democratic republics, some monarchies; but none were safe from the rise of fascism in the country of Thuvograd which lead to the Concord.
The continent of Odessa had long been plagued by monsters of all varieties, from vampires, werewolves and witches, to krakens in the sea. It was using this fear that the Concord was able to rally people to its cause, channeling their fear against the two inhuman races of Odessa, the Shyxx, and the Ghobatons (Scabs).
After years of war, the Concord had conquered all nations save one: the Kingdom of Alventi. Then alien monstrosities descended from the skies bringing with them a plague, and within months the Concord collapsed.
The main series of Discordia will take place 35 years after the fall of the Concord as a group of characters try to navigate the horrors of Discordia!
The Frowning Man
A creature from Kelviri folklore visits a family, allowing a mother to truly show her love.
Two soldiers from opposing sides of the war flee the fighting and seek shelter with a rural family at their farm. The storm that follows them leaves everything transformed.
The Plague Bearers
During a battle between the Concord and Odessa Rebels, the first appearance of the Plague-Bearers shifts the tide of battle.
