    8 Rules To Make It Out In One Piece is a fun look into what these creators are cooking up over at DSTLRY.

    When you have a lot of different stories, you never know how a comic will be. Out of the 11 stories, there was only one where I didn't like the story and art... but I could see other people liking it. It just wasn't my taste.

    Most of the stories are solid and some are exceptional. I already added the two solo series that are coming out of this comic to my pull list because those stories were so good in this book. I hope more of the stories get their series.

    All the stories were at the minimum entertaining in some way. There were some teasers for some real gems though, that if these are previews to in some way, I'm already going to pick up a good 3 or 4 when they come out.

    Anthology/Lightning Quick Short Story books suck, they're never satisfying. What makes this suck even more is that the creators here are so amazing along with the art that you're like 'Wait, WTF, it's over already?' It's kinda like a Comic Book strip club where each creator shakes their comic book naughties for a bit and then leaves. DSTLRY is wanting to be the new Imprint where creators get paid like a mofo; with a $10 price tag for this, $100 variants on their site and a $9 price tag on their first actual series we can see their strategy in action. I will support this imprint wholeheartedly solely based on what looks to be some great books coming down the pike but I could've done without this initial offering. I go through all 11 stories more
