Bassist Alex Lodge owes a lot of money to his . . . “pharmaceutical representatives,” and now they’ve come to collect. With something satanic already afoot in their recording chateau, can the band make it out alive? The Mephistophelean misadventures of Motherfather continue, from Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Action Comics) and Tony Parker (Mass Effect: Foundation)!

    If the first couple of issues of this series were the equivalent of Spinal Tap wandering endlessly through the bowels of the stadium, these last two chapters have seen them finally take the stage to belt out a roof-raising performance of Tonight Im Gonna Rock You Tonight, laying the groundwork for what should be one hell of a finale.

    There's a kind of slapstick side to this installment that definitely has its moments, mostly coming from the "men in black" that are there to get their money. It almost has a Benny Hill kind of element to it that you can imagine with them running around confusedly in the residence trying to bring all of this to a close. At this stage, with two installments to go, I'm still not sure what's real, what isn't, and what the point is. It's a fun trip and it has some great moments, especially the reveals of the financial truths of the band, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to put the most stock into when it comes to the story. It's once again beautifully illustrated and Cornell brings some great dialogue to the project so it's definitely a treat for us old folks, but I'm just getting more wary as it goes into its second half.
