An Illuminati celebrity assassin, adorably twisted ritual sacrifices, doomed lovotic space affairs, war toads, G.U.N.T.S., luchador gorillas, and urban languawitches await in this bizarrely wonderful sci-fi-fantasy fueled comic anthology. Imaginary Drugs is a creator driven exploration of life, love, death, and raygun-toting, multiverse adventure. Skirting the fears and fringes and subverting the hopes and expectations of the modern imagination, Imaginary Drugs tackles the possible future origins of human life, our increasingly dependent relationship with technology, and the ass-kicking absurdity of beating a nest of blood-suckers into submission with a cosmically powered baseball bat.

    Sure, there's the occasional damp squib in here, but it's more because of the highly compressed nature of some of the tales that you'd otherwise see gather steam. It's a bit frenetic, overwhelming at times, but these are niggles. I've been really impressed by IDW's output over the last year, and 2015 looks set to be another belter. It's a great book to dip in and out of, a hallucinogenic coffee table read, and well worth giving up your cash to your local purveyor of paper crack. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Jan 23, 2015

    Something like this is incredibly hard to review. If you try and just go step by step you end up with a 200 page wall of text that does nothing to help you decide if you want to buy it or not. If I try to tear apart every philosophy that's implied by the text I think you'd end up with something equally long and twice as uninteresting. You can only understand Imaginary Drugs by reading it and digesting it yourself. It's impossible to know if you're going to like it or not until you're 75 pages into this 200 page monster. I promise that you will like something though. With the wide berth of concepts and storytelling on display you are bound to pull something good from it. The best review for something like this is one sentence "This is good comma go buy it". So, that is what I will leave you with. This is good, go buy it. Read Full Review
