Ricky Toledo was 15 when a handsome lodger rented a room in her family's small, rural home. Lust, adultery and murder would follow. It's three years later and the serial killer who murdered Ricky's mother and got her father sent down for it is cutting a bloody swath through the broken soul of America. This warped game of cat and mouse between a tortured young woman and a serial killer can only be told by the comics masters of the crime thriller and the artform, David and Maria Lapham.

The first black & white title from Black Crown!

    The second issue fills in some backstory for the two leads, and it's... unsettling. In that perfectly Lapham way. Read Full Review

    Lodger #2 presents its own form of seduction, drawing the reader in by presenting an ordinary family down on its luck, and then shoving them off a cliff's edge with the introduction of the Devil. If you want sweetness and light, go watch My Little Pony. For the rest of us, the Lapham's and Lodger, will do just fine. Read Full Review

    The darker story is still lurking beneath the otherwise matter of fact narration. Dante, the serial killer is still appearing to be harmless. It is Ricky who is the psychopath. Read Full Review

    Lodger #2 slows the pace a little, but too much detail and some poor art choices mean what should be a tautly paced thriller instead confuses, overwhelms and, so far, disappoints. Read Full Review

    The second issue really starts to pull some threads together and really rewards a close read.

    A giant leap forward from issue #1. This issue seems more consistent with the tone and style of Stray Bullets, Silverfish, Young Liars, standard David Lapham crime/noir/weirdness. I'm wondering if he took a heavier hand creatively in this issue. No way of knowing. Issue one had a lot of NBC 10pm drama style narration. It's gone in issue 2. Nevertheless, I liked this issue and recommend the series.
