I was excited to read Oni Press’ Brik by Adam Glass and Michael Benson and illustrated by Harwinder Singh. I love the Golem myth, and putting it in a present-day setting to me seemed chalk full of potential. The location is Yonkers, NYC, a neighborhood that once thrived as a community, but a bad group of people have moved in and are trying to kick out the local businesses. It’s become a dangerous neighborhood. One such business is run by an elderly Jewish man who lives nearby with his daughter and grandson. The grandson, Drew, is our young high school-aged hero who is bullied, but also is friends with a gal his age named Chase who he has an obvious crush on. If it wasn’t for the local gang, life would be pretty normal. In response to the dangers of the neighborhood, Drew’s grandfather tells him about how he fought against the Nazis with the help of a Golem. Drew is taken by the story, but his grandfather warns that a Golem can be too powerful, and so they had to shut it down.

When I first volunteered to review this book, all I knew about it was that it was an anthology of Steampunk stories, including one story by an author whose work I enjoy (Madeleine Holly-Rosing, creator of the Boston Metaphysical Society comic). That alone was enough to pique my interest. But as it turns out, Some Time Later is more than that.
