The realities of Hollywood are a strange thing. It can chew you up and eat you alive. For Farrah Durante, this is becoming more and more obvious as the middle-aged actress does everything she can to land her next big role. This is further complicated by a terrifying force that has attached itself to her and doesn’t have much of an affinity for the culture Farrah has surrounded herself with.
This book is weird. And horrifying. And amazing. I have no idea where it’s going, why it exists (aside from writer Jim Zub’s own admission that this book stems from his own fears about failure), or what’s going on in the book. All I know is that I want to read more of this very strange, but wonderful, new series.
Zub has been a favorite writer of mine for a few years now, especially from his run on the always fun Skullkickers. This is a bit of a departure from his usually humorous writing, but he can do creepy and weird just fine if this is any indication.
Artist Djibril Morrissette-Phan is in his early twenties. Look at this gorgeous artwork and you will easily fathom how skilled this young man is. This work is horror at its best. Unsettling and weird as hell, he and colorist K. Michael Russell have really nailed this very odd premise.
After one issue, I’m not sure about this book, to be honest. I’m into it, and I will be following up for sure, but this one has me a bit stumped which I think is a good thing.
