Mini-Series Premiere. Down-on-his-luck rideshare driver Jerry Hauser's existence is a bleak one... especially because every fare he picks up tells him how much he looks like uber-successful self-help guru Darren Hart. But after a twist of fate, Jerry is given the chance of a lifetime... which, if he's not careful, may well end his lifetime. So begins this California noir-a rollicking and gleefully lurid pulp crime story for our time.

    Self Help #1 kickstarts its fun and provocative California noir story with an issue filled with interesting characters and gorgeous art. Even though some aspects of the story are a bit predictable, the comic oozes a distinct charm that's easy to enjoy. Read Full Review

    I do not know where this story is going exactly. It is possible that Darren could die and Jerry will take his place and possibly become a better self-help guru than Darren but only time will tell. Read Full Review

    The debut of 'Self Help' sets up a thoughtful, funny, and satisfying crime story that takes down the empowerment community with grace and skill. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Jun 19, 2024

    The series first issue isnt the most gripping comic. Main character Jerry is a little on the thin side as far as development is concerned. Ultimately, though, he works for what has to happen by the issues end. In the end its Self Help #1s final pages that give the issue enough of a boost to see future potential. Read Full Review

    There's some very interesting potential here, which isn't what I expected after the first few pages. Read Full Review
