    I really enjoyed this but it really wears its influences on its sleeve... in neon letters eighteen feet high. This book is like Twin Peaks if it was narrated by Lemony Snicket. There’s also some Fargo, Wayward Pines and Briarpatch in there (actually, I might be wrong about that last one as it’s too recent to have influenced a book that’s clearly been in the works for quite some time). Even the artwork, as good as it is, is very derivative of David Aja’s stuff.

As I say, I really enjoyed this book but Tyler Boss really needs to find his own style. My next book: Tiriel

    A small town, a girl called Cormac Guffin (rolls eyes..) that has gone missing, a weird peppermint factory, a weird mayor, a police chief that seems to know something, a young girl who wants to find her friend Cormac Guffin (rolls eyes again..). Dark Horse does a mean line of Twin Peaks knock-offs - Everything to name another one, and now Dead Dog's Bite. They have in common that they never completely work - it tries hard to be quirky, which at best leads to some funny dialogue, and at worst feels A small town, a girl called Cormac Guffin (rolls eyes..) that has gone missing, a weird peppermint factory, a weird mayor, a police chief that seems to know something, a young girl who wants to find her friend Cormac Guffin (rolls eyes again..). Dark Horse does a mean line of Twin Peaks knock-offs - Everything to name another one, and now Dead Dog's Bite. They have in common that they never completely work - it tries hard to be quirky, which at best leads to some funny dialogue, and at worst feels like filler. I do like the ending - there's a sinister atmosphere throughout the book, and it's refreshing to see the ending making a less expected choice. I mean, the story still makes little sense, and seems full of plot holes, but we can overlook it, I suppose. The art is nice, reminds me of newspaper strips. I do hope you like the 9 panel grid, because you'll be seeing a lot of it - if you're lucky, there are plenty of pages with many more panels - it can get a bit repetitive and eye-mangling. In the end, the quirkiness doesn't convince enough, and that's a shame, because without it, there's not much left. 2.5 stars (Thanks to Dark Horse Books for providing me with an ARC through Edelweiss)

    It's experimental in form and it's absolutely bonkers in story and it's one of my favorite (if not my favorite) comics of 2021. It's experimental in form and it's absolutely bonkers in story and it's one of my favorite (if not my favorite) comics of 2021.

    "The scars are proof that it happened. But it's how you tell people where you got them that matters." Tyler Boss once again shows off his one-of-a-kind eye for color and composition in this innovative, surreal and heartfelt story. Now coupled with his own promising skills as a writer, we could be witnessing the rise of a major new talent in the comic medium. "The scars are proof that it happened.

    This mini-series gives me feelings not unlike the Twilight Zone or Twin Peaks. And it all revolves around people fitting in or not at all. The way Tyler Boss presents everything is immense in panel layouts alone. It really brings out the narrative strengths of cartooning. It's like the comic book itself is telling the story. The way interruptions happen makes it obvious to the reader but almost never the characters. Plus the more times I see the protagonist Joe try to level with people by imitati This mini-series gives me feelings not unlike the Twilight Zone or Twin Peaks.

It's like the comic book itself is telling the story. The way interruptions happen makes it obvious to the reader but almost never the characters. Plus the more times I see the protagonist Joe try to level with people by imitating in the way they talk, they just don't connect. It's like everybody's got something to hide and they'd rather not make a big deal out of it. But when that does become a big deal, they'd rather pretend it never happens, no matter how much closure it can bring.

    Bit of a short leash for this one.... Teens go missing in a small town and no one seems to bat an eye. I really wish this one could have been longer. It starts off in the middle of a mystery and just when it gets going, it ends and I feel like I showed up late to the party. That doesn't mean it wasn't good. It has a great first issue and lots of fun moments through out. The end is decent but I just thought there might be something more sinister. Its fun and I would love to see what they do for a Bit of a short leash for this one.... Teens go missing in a small town and no one seems to bat an eye.

    Interesante historia, con final creativo, pero como que me faltó desarrollo.

    I really thought this could have used a fifth issue to flesh out things a bit more
