In this review, we shall focus on some of his best literary works to date.

Nekropolis #1 Matt Richter

Matt Richter is a cop chasing criminals through a portal and ends up in a foreign world. He dies and comes back to planet earth as a sentient zombie. He has changed except that he has developed into a walking dead creature. Matt resurrected in Nekropolis world, where monsters of all kinds live and devour one another like wild animals. Weird characteristics and habits not pertinent to human behavior. As a law enforcer, Matt is a neutralizer to both man and monster. He defends everyone’s rights. Devona, the half-vampire, and guardian of the Nekropolis Lord of the Vampires walks into Matt’s life. He feels compelled to defend her, although she has bigger problems than any other monster/man, putting his own immortal life at risk of, well, he’s dead. So, probably at risk of turning into a vampire, (let us assume so in this case, to make the story juicy) Matt, the zombie, embodies into three personalities into one character. He is the allure, the problem and the resolve all at once. He is also immune to bodily injuries; despite that, he does not hold any special powers to defend himself.

He is immune to pain and feelings, but he must preserve his body from decay by taking a regular dose of stabilizer spells. Though a Zombie, Matt’s reasoning sometimes slows his decision-making, but he always outmaneuvers opponents through strategic thinking abilities. Nekropolis features modern day references to pop culture and myths. The city was established by Dispater, and ruled by five lords, although the residents freely intermingle. It is a diverse multicultural establishment with vampires, demons, the undead and spell casters. All the characters are unique and include notable monsters like Frankenstein. The paranormal expressed in this book is entertaining, and Tim went superciliously creative when writing this edition, full throttle evil versus good.

Nekropolis #2 Dead Streets

This book expands on the setting of the terrific plot and great characterization as seen in the first edition. We continue with the stories of vampires, magical spells, lycanthropes, and technology all creatively written in a crisp, clear flow. Matt Richter, the protagonist, is a private investigator living in Nekropolis, a dark city of the worldly full of mystical beings immigrated to mingle with humanity. Dead Streets revives majority of its characters from the initial book with an additional introduction to new ones as well. Waggoner uses a self-willed “Zombie” who has to constantly do a lot of body preservation while keeping a good grip on the advanced brain functionality. Sadly, his condition presents uncertainties like sex in the relationship department, which for obvious reasons he cannot indulge. Richter’s emotional complexities create some friction with his half vampire, half-human female catch, Devona. Matt has to deal with his living body in a world of the living, which is somewhat hard to deal with, and Tim Waggoner tortures his readers with speculation and amusement of the outcome with such incongruous characters. The mystery depicted in Nekropolis is entertaining and paced moderately, making you internalize the bizarreness of the whole story and wraps itself up unexpectedly.

Supernatural #1 Myth Maker

Renee Mendez is a talented teenage artist living in a small town in Illinois. She loves to draw strange creatures that she sees in her dreams, which, when brought to life on paper, they become real living monsters. These gods embark on hunting for worshippers and fighting for supremacy, slaughtering humans and each other until only the strongest of them all remain. Sam and Dean arrive in town to uncover the miracles and murders performed by the new gods (monsters) while killing some, in the process. The strongest gods survive and prepare to fight in their last battle, where only the mighty shall survive. Sam and Dean must stop these angry gods before they destroy the entire town.

Supernatural #12 Carved in Flesh

The Winchester brothers lost their beloved mother to a ghostly mystery vampire. Their father trained the two brothers how to hunt and obliterate the mystic evil that exists in the dark. After their father’s spiritually demonic death, they found out that they are descendants of ancient hunters and prefer to carry on their mission. An enormous black dog is seen roving in Brennan, Ohio area. Several fresh corpses attract Sam and Dean Winchester, and when they eventually apprehend the monster dog, it turns out as the reanimated crazy version from detached dogs turned into a “Frankenmutt.” The brothers embark on a trail in search of the developer, which leads them to a series of paranormal scientists and ancient wicked powers.

The book turns into an enjoyable read with divine action engaging conversations and an in-depth knowledge of ancient paranormal activities. Tim Waggoner provides sufficient flashback scenes of the tow brothers from their teenage years lending the two books into a perfect story with sequence events. It reads reminiscent of actual dramatic move episodes, Tim Waggoner understands the two brothers, and the plot line frankly delivers a supernatural fiction as naturally as you would expect. Carved in Flesh keeps you on edge, gasping for air. The monsters get more sinister, and you rather fear for the lives of the two mortals hoping that they do not die abruptly. Of course, heroes do not die in the middle of the book! That’s the point of a graspful engaging book.
