Bloodfellas by Jasper Bark & Mick Trimble [4 stars]

From the Description:

"When there's no room left in hell, the dead will turn to crime." Boardwalk Empire meets the Walking Dead. Zombie Gangsters take over the streets of Prohibition era USA. A horror-crime mash up available from Markosia.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this novel.

Bloodfellas is a noir-horror story that is loads of fun. The storyline is twisty and intertwines the lives of zombie gangsters, a fanatical mob boss, angels, cops, and a scientist. Jasper bark combines mobsters and zombies in a way that made me want more! Mick Trimble's artwork is a gritty and colorful throwback to my childhood. Graphic novels aren't my usual genre but with work like this available I may have to check out more of them! A fun 4 star way to spend an afternoon.
