Dr. Herbert West, The Reanimator, returns! Setting up shop in New Orleans, the brilliant Dr. West continues his life's work: the revival of the dead by purely chemical means. To accomplish this task, he recruits Susan Greene, a young and wide-eyed pharmacologist fascinated by his macabre experiments. Initially unfazed by West's unorthodox practices (including how he funds his research - by selling zombie brain fluid as a narcotic), Susan may regret her scientific curiosity as sinister forces - those aligned with Elder Gods and Haitian Voodoo - begin to align against the Reanimator. Dynamite Entertainment proudly resurrects H.P Lovecraft's notorious mad scientist in a fear-fraught tale of Cthulhu tentacle terror and backwater Louisianan superstition! Bonus features include a thorough "History of The Reanimator" prose introduction by writer Keith Davidsen, an insightful and meticulously researched appendix of Lovecraftian references and creator commentary, never-before-seen design illustrations from artist Randy Valiente, and a complete cover gallery featuring the work of Francesco Francavilla, Jae Lee, Andrew Mangum, Nacho Tenorio, and Tim Seeley.
"Dynamite Entertainment's best book!" - Major Spoilers "Brisk and engaging." - Comic Book Reviewer "Keep(s) me at the edge of my seat." - Comic Booked "Reanimator is a textbook for all other would-be rebooters on how to bring franchise ideas fully back to life." - Comic Critique "This comic's got heart even if it's in a dissecting tray... If you're a fan of scientists, magic, or eldritch abominations, you'll love this book." - Comic Monsters "A Mythos roller coaster." - ComicWow! "There are some decidedly treacherous undercurrents in these waters, and we're pretty much assured a bumpy, but ultimately pleasing, ride. I've seen enough already to convince me that it would be wise to stick around for the duration - and to hang on really tight." - Daily Grindhouse "So many fantastic nods to Lovecraft... it's hard not to smile at a legend being honored." - Dread Central "Herbert West is back and crazier than ever... The art/design is excellent, just about as Lovecraftian and gruesome as you can get. Vibrant colors enhance the grotesque imagery so that the blood seems to ooze off the page." - Killer Horrorcast from Outer Space "After many incarnations and guest-starring roles, Herbert West finally gets the solo series he deserves." - Newsarama "Slow-burn action mixed with speedy-paced narrative progression... You're in for a treat." - Outright Geekery "After a long day at work, I can't think of a better way to unwind." - Paste Magazine "This is better than any movie made... fun, frantic, intense, and with wildly imaginative creepiness." - Reading with a Flight Ring "Bloody, insane, and very, very messy... just like a good Reanimator story should be." - Rock! Shock! Pop!
