Relationships crumbling, groupies gone missing, owing money to drug dealers, meeting the devil himself—you might say the band Motherfather has problems. So what’s the perfect place to record their latest album? A haunted house, of course! More hellish high jinks from Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics) and Tony Parker (Mass Effect: Foundation)!

    I'll admit that I'm still not sure what's real and what's not in this series but I'm loving the trippy atmosphere of it, the surreal nature of what the group may or may not have experienced, and the general group dynamic. These are almost always strangely dysfunctional co-dependent families that get built around bands of this nature and time and watching how it plays out with a kind of give and take and tug of war between the various members is fascinating. It takes some darker turns for some of the cast here along the way, and some deadly turns, but it also goes in a completely unexpected direction at the end that has me befuddled as to what's to come next. But I know I want more of this ride. Read Full Review

    This Damned Band had an iffy opening act, but it's here the series finds its heart. There's some hang ups but having Motherfather and crew hand around a creepy mansion was oddly what this story needed. Paul Cornell works new depths into otherwise two-dimensional rock band archetypes, Tony Parker creates an on point Victorian horror setting, all by the colors of Lovern Kindzierski. The Band's hit its share of bad notes but here's where they open up for a real performance. Read Full Review

    Overall, while it hasnt quite peaked yet for me, at least This Damned Band is finally starting to live up to its promise, delivering a humorous and intriguing issue which opens up a lot of possibilities for the rest of the series.  Its worth mentioning that in my previous review, I mistakenly mentioned that this was a four-part series, and want to clarify that this is actually set to run for six issues, giving me a far more positive outlook about the pacing thus far.  If you like you outlandish rock and roll depravity with a slightly supernatural twist, then This Damned Band is definitely worth checking out.

    Yes, I know. I'm painfully aware. It's essentially all I'm aware of. The end of the first issue made me think I was in for an adventure, but every time we're on the brink of something, the story backpedals, and these talented artists are robbed of a chance to strut their stuff.
