Wow, first review on GOODREADS! I hope more people read this.
This is an original graphic novel, the writer, Jeff Dixon, is a horror writer, with a gift for the absurd and amusing. He’s also got a site:
I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but it exceeded that.
Louis is in Hell, and he’s a recruiter, going to get people to give up their souls on Earth for the Devil. He’s great at his job but miserable…
The best part is, that he goes while in the guise of a clown. Yup.
So this scary mofo shows up to haunt your dreams…turns out, Louis makes a major faux-pas…the Clown is the Devil’s favourite garb to scare and torture souls with…so no one else is supposed to use it but him.
This leads to Louis being stripped of his rank and sentenced to 5 years in Personal Hell Prison, where you relive your worst fear non-stop.
Louis isn’t having any of it, and with the help of This guy…
Plans his escape.
Of course, by now, this is one of the funniest yet engrossing graphic novels I’ve read in some time. I was laughing so much at it, but loving it as well.
Throw in some Tarantino style action/violence:
Hell’s Call Girl Madam, and 2 of Satan’s crazy enforcers, and you’ve got one…Hell? Of a party! (See what I did there? wordplay!)
I cannot recommend this highly enough for anyone who wants a nice break from Capes and Grit.
In particular, Lono, I feel like this book was made for you.
