Where were you in '81? When the White House goes dark for 17 days in August, the president's spoiled daughter and her best friend Abe-who claims to be possessed by the spirit of Abe Lincoln-throw a rager at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, unearthing long dead historical figures and government secrets that are better off buried. Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll séances, and secret passageways lead to time-bending mystical romps where past and present collide. But at what cost to Marilyn Kelleher, the world at large, and music television?

Uniting the red-hot Eisner-nominated talents of writer Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl, Kim and Kim) and more

    Marilyn Manor is one of those books thats just strange in a really fun way. Much like the main character, its not concerned with fitting in or following any rules. It just wants to have fun. And the cliffhanger promises more weirdness to come. Read Full Review

    This excellently-bizarre little comic looks like it will shape up to be a sincerely fun ride. I know Im ready to rage on to Marilyn Manor #2. Read Full Review

    Black Crown continues to make strange, off-beat, resonant titles and "Marilyn Manor," from members of my two favorite "Young Animal" titles, is no exception. A hell of a good time, it's only going to get weirder from here and I cannot wait. Read Full Review

    Filled with bawdy humor, Marilyn Manor #1 sets the tone for what this series is destined to become. The fun-loving IDW debut promises to take readers on an adventure, but this debut issue does little to delve into any sort of substantial meat to hook followers. Read Full Review

    You mileage may vary with Marilyn Manor. The book feels like a loose assemblage of story elements at this point that aren't completely in line with what the solicit copy teases. It's steeped in '80s pop culture touchstones, but there seems to be a lack of intentionality in how they're used. But the book looks good, and these are two creators with a good track record. If you like the pieces they present here, it's only a matter of time before they give you a satisfying whole. Read Full Review
