Is Joey willing to pay with her life to uncover the gruesome secrets behind Crestfall Bluffs?

Joey is beyond disturbed by what she has just witnessed and she has every right to be, but when she confides in her boyfriend Astor, his reassurance about his family's weird rituals and traditions only fuels her suspicions.

Still, Joey will need proof in order to expose the truth of Crestfall Bluffs, but what she finds produces more questions and danger than answers!

    Another great issue and you can just feel the tension building with what Joey has discovered. Sarah Gailey is really setting the tone for this series and I am looking forward to where she goes with future issues. Fans of suspense thrillers will thoroughly enjoy this book and hopefully it's on your watch list if it isn't already! Read Full Review

    'Eat The Rich' #2 slows things down in order to dive deeper into the horrific situation of Cresfall Bluffs while masterfully digging into some of the worst aspects of capitalism and our current reality. What this series does best is magnify the true horror that surrounds us daily, that is baked into the very systems that create and maintain our society. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 22, 2021

    Eat The Rich #2 changes the game. Gailey throws a great twist into the story that makes the whole thing that much better, taking a story that could have been cliche but still good and making it into something different. Bak and Titov bring the whole thing to life, really playing up the emotion and the atmosphere of Gaileys script. Eat The Rich is shaping up into something different than expected, and thats great.

    Both timely and good, this issue will be a tough act to follow. I know what the readers were expecting from this title, but it certainly isn't whatever the heck this is. It is better. Read Full Review

    This is a solid bit of work that will likely shine in a collected format. Despite some truly remarkable moments, the sum of the parts didn't quite make it.  Read Full Review

    The second issue of Boom's latest horror series manages to tell a far more compelling story than its first, primarily thanks to flipping expectations on their ear. Read Full Review

    Im giving it a better grade than maybe I should due to the story being well done and the fact that the main characters anxiety comes off so well written that you truly feel the messed up feelings shes having.

    Eat the Rich #2 delves into the aftermath of what Jo saw Pip do to the Rockweather’s groundskeeper Toby. Lying in bed and terrified to death, her only desire is to leave. Jo tries to wake Astor up to let him know what she saw but to no avail, as the Klonopin he took to help him sleep has him too out of it.

    Jo decides to go searching for proof so that she can convince Astor in the morning of what happened. Petal ends up finding Jo as she is snooping through Pip’s office. The conversation that ensues between the two is downright tense, a little shocking, and definitely disturbing. However, there are some themes that are touched on by Petal that I found to be quite relevant and surprisingly poignant about class inequality, inad more

    I mean, this is okay. I think the pacing could be better, and the lack of communication between the main character and her boyfriend is already frustrating. But the social commentary is pretty neat, and horror needs neat social commentary most of the time.
