My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.
