**** (out of five)

Night Club can be summed up in two words: “Got marrow?”
While not a blatantly funny horror book, this tale of four strangers banding together to save Boston from the forces of Satan is certainly witty.
From wisecracks like “got marrow?” from the undead to the Morgan Freeman-esque preacher Walter’s “hlyrolr” licence plate, there is a lot of nuance.
This first issue drops you right in the middle of the action and then slowly explains itself out. But the lead characters: Annie, Jack, Jerry and especially Walter, are likeable and the quick pace builds you up and leaves you wanting more.
Issue #1 of this limited series by writer Mike Baron and artist Mike Norton is a solid debut and Night Club looks to be a memorable mix of smart, funny and creepy.
