Pryor Brice has just killed an entire room full of people - because he just won a stand-up com-edy competition!

Pryor should be on top of the world after his win, but he's not. The spirit of his dead friend that's trapped inside him has grown more powerful. Now Pryor is acting...differently. How do you exorcise a malignant spirit for bargain prices on such short notice? Well, all we can say is...thank God for the internet.

    Knock 'em Dead continues to be a really fun book. I wasn't sure how well it was going to handle the balance between humor and horror based on the original solicitations but it's leaned into the horror more than anything else – while being really creative with the way it handles the comedy – that it just makes me enjoy it all the more. Rahal's providing for some good curves in the story here that are keeping it engaging and surprising and I adore Monaco's artwork here a lot. I can't wait to see what happens to Ronnie and Pryor next. Read Full Review

    Not the strongest chapter in the series to date, but despite a couple hiccups in pacing, it's still a solid entry. It probably could have been drawn out into two installments with a slower build to Pryor's breaking point, but it gets the job done, and opens up some really interesting possibilities moving forward.

    The way the series expresses the act of performing standup visually is still interesting, but this issue may have derailed the entire plot. Read Full Review
