Marty Tarantella has been flipping burgers for 15 years. He has no kids, no hobbies, no love interests, and, essentially, no life. But what he does have is a plan to change everything. Years of watching the daily rhythms of the neighboring stores has given Marty the idea for a perfect heist, but when he accidentally steals a supernatural weapon from a cult full of violent lunatics, the resulting Satanic panic will be way above his minimum-wage pay grade. Nothing can prepare you for the coming of Trve Kvlt, a deliciously horrifying and hilarious new series!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 24, 2022

    Its difficult to tell quite where Wilsons going, but its definitely going to be fun watching him get there. Blue-collar people getting mixed up in crime is well-traveled territory in pop fiction, but Wilson and Kangas have found a very distinct voice for their story that is quirky and surreal without losing a very firm grounding in the realm of the believably mundane. If they can maintain a firm footing in the distinct voice that theyve developed for the first issue, its going to be a lot of fun.  Read Full Review

    Trve Kvlt #1 isn't a bad start but there's a sense of a scattered story that matches its lead Marty. The comic doesn't focus at times and feels like it bounces around but misses some key motivations and depth to the main character. Due to that, he's not one to really cheer for which makes the point of reading the comic to see how he's going to mess up. Read Full Review
