Sick little piece of horror from Warren Ellis that, alas, didn't scare me or squick me. And as that was the straight-from-the-author point of the whole thing... well, Warren can (and does) do a lot better than this. Wolfer's art gets the job done but is nothing special. ( )

Strange Kiss is indeed a bit strange, in almost a Lovecraft sort of way. William Gravel is a SAS hard man, but that is not all. He is some sort of magic user as well, or as he calls himself, a combat magician. Not your average job.

He is marking time, having annoyed one boss too many, and trying mostly to stay alive. When a friend gets sick, he investigates and finds some truly horrific, disturbing, and alien that he must try and eradicate.

Not for the squeamish or prudish is this series.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970678401, Paperback)

A horrific murder/suicide takes place in the middle of a busy city street at midday, while an old man rots in a hospital bed nearby, bloated with something sick and reptilian gestating inside. In a darkened place close by, people scream, impregnated and doomed. Something beautiful and awful is trying to reproduce, and its strange kiss is only to be feared... A mystery and horror thriller by comic book luminary Warren Ellis, featuring the introduction of soldier-turned-mystic detective, William Gravel!
