The Discipline, Vol. 1: The Seduction

Peter Milligan and Leandro Fernández. Image, $9.99 trade paper (160p.) ISBN 978-1-63215-922-9
Milligan (New Romancer) and Fernández (Punisher Max) tell of a battle between ancient inhuman enemies, the Discipline and the Stalkers. Both use sex as a tool to convert humans to their cause, and neither side gives any quarter. Melissa Peake is a young woman with an inattentive husband whose potential is being squandered, making her ripe for recruitment by the Discipline. Once she’s seduced to their side, she’s able to assume the somewhat reptilian form of the Discipline at will. The lycanthropic Stalkers consider this newcomer to their world as weak and pursue her relentlessly. This unquestionably deserves its M rating, as there is sex of various sorts, including BDSM and fornication with actual monsters, along with plenty of death, much of which is a result of the sex. The artwork, both Fernández’s rendering and the colors by Cris Peter, are reminiscent of Hellboy and BPRD. A dark blend of sex magic and horror. (Oct.)
