Pryor Brice died...but only for a couple of seconds.

The thing is, he didn't come back alone. The spirit of Danny Baron, Pryor's (more successful)
comedian friend, was brought back with him. Trapped inside Pryor's body, the ghost of Danny offers Pryor a supernatural deal: He'll write Pryor's material so Danny can still be successful, even after death.  

Their bargain comes with supernatural strings attached and, soon, Pryor will discover that
comedy is no laughing matter.

    It's clear that writer Eliot Rahal is in his element here and it's paying off in spades. Where the first issue was largely setup, we really get moving here and I'm super pumped to see where this series goes next. Knock Em Dead is the supernatural stand-up comedy comic I didn't know I wanted. It leans into the darkness in such a natural way that you can't help but get pulled in. Read Full Review

    The pressures of show business are enough on their own to drive anyone to their breaking point. Add in the dark family history, PTSD, and the paranormal horror twist, and Pryor Brice is a powder keg. Knock 'Em Dead is shaping up to be some of Eliot Rahal's finest work. Read Full Review

    While it remains to be seen just how dark this story will go – it's gone pretty dark already – I'm enjoying that we're getting solid character time put into it so that we really get into the groove with Pryor and Rona. Though you can understand why both act and do what they do, you can still be frustrated by it and want to see it unfold differently. But the darkness is in the house now and how it'll reveal itself more and more is what makes it pretty exciting. I like what Rahal has going on here and the combo of Monaco and Milla makes for some very detailed and striking pages that put us right in the middle of everything. Read Full Review
