"... Things are awakening in the city. Things that have a nasty habit of leaving mutilated bodies in their wake, and it all reeks of demons and dark gods up to no good. Owing a favor to his lazy ghost cop buddy Trotsky, Wormwood and his oddball entourage are brought in to investigate the case (or at least hopefully not stuff it up too much)"--P. 4 of cover.… (more)

Humorous tale of a supernatural worm residing in the body of a corpse who solves...well, supernatural crimes of sorts. The sense of humor reminded me a little of Hellboy, but the artwork was one of a kind (well, as is Hellboy, but a different one of a kind). Funny, and grotesque. And pretty violent. ( )

[author: Ben Templesmith] is a minor deity! [Book: Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse: Birds, Bees, Blood & Beer] was my first encounter with his work.

Very funny, dark, and grim. ( )

Cannot wait to read the rest of this series. Monster and mayhem being investigated by Wormwood the gentleman corpse and his clockwork friend (who wants to have bits). Just wonderful and creative! ( )

A wonderfully humorous, horror comic.

Wormwood, the Gentleman corpse has a problem, someone is flooding the city with sexually enhancing drugs, ones that leave a demonic seed in their partners belly..

This is a stunning piece of dark comedic horror, filled with a cool collection of oddballs (a zz-top look alike robot, a demonic tattooed dancer) and bristles with a wry dead pan yet humane humour. The dark, surreal, dreamy art is gorgeous by itself (so much so I own some prints!). If that’s not enough praise for you it has the best Leprechaun scene ever. Period. ( )

I absolutely love the characters, the story and humor of this book though for me the art work was a bit hit or miss. His style fits the characters and the world he created but some of it just felt to sketchy, incomplete and for my personal taste. ( )
