Early Review: Deadman: Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love by Sarah Vaughn

Jun 6, 2017

Romance, mystery, and evil fill the halls of an old gothic mansion in New England. There's only one person in the world that can bring peace to this place: Boston Brand, a.k.a., Deadman! When a ghost cannot rest in the place that holds her, the DCU's authority on all things supernatural must help before all is lost!


In this tale that evokes tension tension of classic romance comics as well as supernatural superhero storytelling, DEADMAN: DARK MANSION OF FORBIDDEN LOVE is a new take on the classic DC hero!  Written by indie comics sensation Sarah Vaughn, this graphic novel collects issues #1-3 of the critically acclaimed mini-series.



I love romance comics! Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love serves up quite the Gothic romance. This comic is a bit of a change for the the Deadman's stories. Berenice can see ghosts, but it's not something she likes to embrace. There's a bit of a love triangle going on with her boyfriend who is always trying to write and her best friend. A very angry entity lives within the mansion. Yes, it's haunted. Berenice is in luck when Boston Brand, the Deadman shows up to help her out with unraveling the past. The ending packs a punch as the truth is revealed. The art work is perfect, the color psychology worked well giving an emotional depth to the story. I'll be adding this Deadman series to my collection of romance comics.
