A young man finds himself trapped in a bizarre apartment with a group of ill matched roommates. He quickly discovers that his new home doesn't adhere to any rational laws of nature, and poses a strange enigma, a puzzle he must solve to escape. It's no help that both him and his roommates are missing crucial parts of their memories and identities; he must try and gather the missing pieces as he struggles to find a way out. This existential mystery, loosely based on Jean Paul Sartre's play "No Exit", lures you, the reader, into a horror house of lust, angst, and madness; As you venture deeper and deeper into the darkest recess of The Abaddon, you will begin to wonder if you'll ever see the light of day again.

    I've never been so unsatisfied after a review. Usually after a review I feel good, like I let the world know about a comic and now they're going to go check it out. But there's so much I just can't bring myself to say about the book and yet I really want to. I want to discuss it with others that have read it and get their thoughts and opinion on it. So do me a favor, go check it out and come back here and talk about it. Spoilers in the comments are welcomed and so I'll be waiting, but in the meantime read what may be the best book of 2015, if it's not then it's damn close to being the best. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Nov 11, 2015

    The book has a certain "Life on Mars" quality, mixed in with a little bit of David Lynch or William S. Burroughs, in part emulating some of the self loathing inherent in the Naked Lunch. The book was originally structured as a web comic, which does show through the pacing of the story, in places. The book may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for something that will make you think a little about shortcomings, desires and the exasperation of doing the same things and expecting different results, then give this a read.
