On stage. In the spotlight. There's no escape.
"Sharply written and drawn, with deft insight into the trappings of celebrity culture, GLITTERBOMB just might be the ultimate Hollywood horror story."

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 7, 2016

    The real-world stuff has always been the more important thematic factor, but they seem more real now, something which can also be said about Holly Raychelle Hughes’ essay. In a way this makes Glitterbomb the book of 2016, in an ideal world we wouldn’t be at this point, but as a result, we have art like this to stand up and speak out. The series and creative team are taking a break until the back half of next year, operating like a TV show, but it’s guaranteed that this series will be something to think about until it returns.

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 30, 2016

    The ending of the issue was a direct message to the reader, and it closes out this first volume perfectly. It's obvious the story isn't quite over though. Hopefully whenever the story picks up it actually has a meaning and doesn't go down the pointless sequel root. Or perhaps that'll be the point? Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Dec 8, 2016

    Glitterbomb is, as we speak, at a crossroads in its plot. It could go in about a thousand different directions, and all of them would be pretty awesome. I'm game for whatever Mr. Zub brings. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 19, 2016

    Glitterbomb is a scathing look at fame and our quest for it.  It's a comic that could not be hitting at a better time, where people are less concerned with showcasing their talent and more interested in becoming famous.  I wish Kim Kardashian would read this book.  I could sell it on the fact that it has pictures.  Speaking of, the artwork is pitch perfect, walking the fine line between emotion-filled scenes of drama and gore-filled segments of monstrous carnage.  Plus, it leaves off with a cliffhanger where you just have to find out what happens next.

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Dec 7, 2016

    Recommended to anyone who has ever wanted to open their jaws and unleash a demonic, fanged death tongue all over somebody who made them feel less than what they truly are. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 6, 2016

    Glitterbomb continues to capture the frailty of the human condition via the awful behavior of Hollywood peers. In a world where it's all about how you look, Zub is revealing the inner truth of the characters is more monstrous than anything you could imagine — even when the script blows everything up and makes you shake your head with utter confusion!

    Lyles Movie Files - Pierre Brown Dec 27, 2017

    Glitterbomb: The Fame Game certainly was an interesting read up until this point. Theres loose ends and a rushed confrontation that doesnt quite add up o the drama and horror of the earlier issues. Hopefully 2018 gives readers an opportunity to revisit this series and continue where we were abruptly dropped off. Read Full Review
