From the powerhouse team of Joe Hill (Locke & Key) and Martin Simmonds (Punks Not Dead) comes the second chapter in the inaugural Syd "Sh*t-Talk" Homes mystery!
Comedy may be hard and dying may be easy, but getting yourself off the hook for murder? For Syd Homes, that's looking damn near impossible.

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jan 10, 2020

    Dying Is Easy #2 has some pretty decent art and color work. But it's just not enough to overcome the plot and dialog. In a rare misstep by Joe Hill and Marin Simmonds, this comic is just not very good. Read Full Review
