It can be tough reviewing something before you’ve read it. Sometimes you just know that you’ll like something based on a creator or two. In this case, I’m relying on how much I enjoy the work of Nick Spencer on books like DC Comics‘ T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and Morning Glories from Image Comics. Like Jonathan Hickman, Spencer loves an intricate story and knows characters are what draw a reader in to a book. And the description (below) sounds intriguing. Perfect for Halloween!
Image says: “Fillmore Press was once Madder Red, a homicidal maniac and criminal overlord who terrorized the town of Bedlam for years. Then he got better. This is what happens next. A double-sized introduction to a blood-soaked cityscape of murder, mayhem, and mystery by NICK SPENCER (MORNING GLORIES, THIEF OF THIEVES) and RILEY ROSSMO (REBEL BLOOD, GREEN WAKE)!”
Here’s a preview (mature readers).
