Death seems to be everywhere when, after arriving on a quaint but eerie Eastern European island, a disgraced journalist following up on a peculiar story meets the leader of a group of odd, tech-obsessed children who evidently have a strange power over the frightened adults of the village.

YOU ARE OBSOLETE is a spine-tingling thriller that evokes the eerie naturalism of 1970s horror films with a modern deadly digital twist. Written by Mathew Klickstein (Sony Pictures' Against the Dark, Slimed!, Springfield Confidential, Selling Nostalgia) and drawn by Evgeniy Bornyakov (DESCENDENT).

    You Are Obsolete had me hooked from the first issue and this builds well on it as we know just how trapped Lyla is in what the children are up to. We get a better look at the dynamic of life in Muhu and how both children and adults act which is definitely creepy in obvious ways. Lyla's story is definitely a draw as we watch her deal with all that's thrown at her while looking for something to latch onto as so much is coming out. Bornyakov's artwork definitely fits the tone of this well and Affe's coloring for it is so perfectly oppressive that it's like another character itself. It's a really interesting book and I'm excited to see what comes next with it. Read Full Review

It is still in its infancy and setting up the story, so there's a lack of explanation for key plot details, such as how how this all started, and what is actually killing the adult Read Full Review
