Writer: David Hine
Artist: Shaky Kane
To say Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred shakes up the preconceptions of the comic book medium is like saying the Atlantic Ocean is fairly damp. Completely shattering normal narrative conventions and artistic boundaries, this title is part satire, part homage, and wholly sadistic all at the same time. Best of all, each issue acts as its own self-contained tale, which is a breath of fresh air compared to the overly-serialized nature of modern comics.
So far we have seen issues deal with a bizarre set of post-modern vignettes, the disturbing nature of a child’s imagination, and a visual story comprised of completely unrelated panels. David Hine and Shaky Kane created this book to remind the world that comics aren’t arenas solely designed for corporate mascots to flex their muscles and sell toys. It’s a rich medium where risks demand to be taken.
The writing is spot-on, but Kane’s art is what makes this while thing work. Each page is vial, offensive, and disgusting, all while being undeniably captivating. We just hope that there's more Bulletproof Coffin on the way.
