Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead #1 (of 4)Hotwire_Ellis
Writer: Steve Pugh
Illustrator: Steve Pugh
Based on a Story by: Warren Ellis
Publisher: Radical Comics
Release Date: February 4, 2009
Review by: Stephanie Shamblin Gray

Our thoughts: Like to cross your ghost stories with some science fiction? Throw in some action and you have Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead. As you might expect, these are not your typical specters. The ghosts in this story are called blue-lights, and they graze off of electromagnetic waste. Special suppressor towers are used to keep them in check, and when thatís not enough, thereís our protagonist, Alice Hotwire, Detective Exorcist. Gorgeous, tough, and not allowed to carry a gun. Lucky for her, she knows how to improvise with electricity, helicopters, or anything else that may be handy.

Steve Pughís illustrations in this book are amazing. Youíll find yourself just flipping through the pages and staring at the panels. Eventually youíll notice that there is also a pretty intriguing storyline, also by Steve Pugh. Alice ís character is fresh and exciting, but unfortunately most of the male characters seem awfully stereotypical. Hereís hoping for a little more depth from the guys as the series moves forward.

Radical Comics has consistently produced eye-poppingly beautiful products, and Hotwire is no exception. While more supernatural mystery than traditional horror, it is nice to see Radical beginning to dip their toes a little deeper into the horror genre. I would definitely recommend picking up this exciting new series.
