    Followed up with a poignant essay by Hughes, it becomes clear that the sense of dread the book is imbued with doesn’t spring forth from the paranormal elements, but the reminders of normality taken directly from the real world. Everyone involved is crafting a tale that serves to show Hollywood isn’t as glamorous as the pictures make it out to be. Read Full Review

    Right in time for Halloween, Glitterbomb #2 ramps up the horror and will give you food for thought and all kinds of tingles. Like a master director, Zub and artist Djibril Morissette-Phan know they have us where they want us leaving you unsure in a haunting sort of way. The last page of this book will fill you existential dread and hopelessness and remind you the best horror is a mirror. Read Full Review

    It's a truly welcome addition to the under used horror genre in comics. The last scene itself is chilling. The story also takes a huge delve into the main character by using an interaction with an old friend. Once we learn that she used to take a lot of LSD it begs the question… is this all some wild hallucination? That would be the easy explanation, but we highly doubt that's the case. Especially given how brutal the murder was of Farrah's agent. But it's possible that if she is taking LSD, she's not a reliable narrator – and we're being told a false story in an attempt to create some kind of twist. Either way, this is a hugely fascinating story. Horror fans shouldn't miss this excellent story. Read Full Review

    While newcomer artist Djibril Morissette-Phan is surprisingly polished, he continues to assert control over this narrative with a mood of mystery and with a tense pace. His storytelling is sharp, efficient, and clear. I think that Morissette-Phan puts the explosion in Glitterbomb, and well, I am curious to see where he goes with this series. Read Full Review

    For anyone who's worked in showbusiness, the criticisms on impermanence and clamoring to be a part of the revolving door of pretty faces must sting true. Those of us whose paths are less in the public eye can still relate to the fear of being replaced by a younger, prettier model, and Farrah's frustration by the pointlessness of it all. It may not be the most uplifting of stories, but Glitterbomb gets right to the point with the absurdity of expectation and insatiability, and is happy to dole out the pain where vengeance is due.

    Let's see, the good parts of this book. Well, the cover is nice. Not awful but not completely memorable, and not close to the level of issue #1. There are some interesting points in the story, though I wish it had been edited in a different direction. Is it going in my personal collection? No. But if I'm ever in acid rehab, I'll probably read the series. Read Full Review
