Graphic Novel Review: Realm of the Damned


There’s no one left to protect us from what lurks in the dark. There’s no Hellboy, no Mulder and Scully, no Torchwood or Men in Black coming to save us. The monsters have won.

Our world now belongs to them.

Realm of the Damned is a rip-roaring tale of vampires, werewolves, ancient Egyptian mummies and black metal. Well written with incredible artwork, you’ll struggle to put it down.

Our world has been lost to supernatural monsters, the last line of defence in the Vatican City has fallen and now vampires live within the hallowed walls. Every day people continue on with their lives unaware (the vampires aren’t stupid – they need a food supply) but for the damned there is no peace.

Van Helsing, a husk of man now…driven to murder, an addict, a defeated hero…he is hunted all over the world for those he has destroyed in the past. He survives but when an ancient evil is summoned from the depths of Norway he is forced to team with his mortal enemies to defeat a threat that will see the entire world go up in flames if not stopped.

It’s a lot of fun to read, well paced & easy to follow but it’s the way the graphic images leap from the pages that really makes Realm of the Damned stand out. Extremely violent & gory, the imagery is not for those who balk at the sight of blood. Naked vampires feasting on humans, drinking from huge stone bowls of blood, werewolves ripping & snarling their way through everything and that’s nothing compared to the ancient evil & how he has no mercy for anyone or anything.

The combination of Pye Parr and Alec Worley has created something spectacular here. Something that gore-hounds and heavy metal fans can enjoy!
