Long thought to be an urban legend in the underground music scene of Redondo Beach, POSER is
back to carve a gory slash through the heart of the Los Angeles South Bay! Read the hot new series Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) calls "relentless and brutal" and Sean Murphy (Punk Rock Jesus) raves is a "master class in sequential storytelling." Grisly and terrifying, POSER upends traditional slasher tropes and gives horror fans something new and exciting to talk about for years to come. Includes a digital download code for the original soundtrack to POSER with music by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust).

    Sirens of Sequentials - CJ Pendragon Oct 3, 2018

    I do think this issue has a more human element to it. In the aftermath of Maddy's murder, we see a lot of emotions. We get to witness the consequences of Ash's self-destruction, see her relationships fall apart and take a peek into the true character of a few other characters as well. It was like a glimpse into the reality of a scene that we don't often get to see; the humanity of punk-rock music isn't just rebellion, it's emotional highs and lows, it's interactive and it's always, always real. And witnessing the reactions to a psychotic murder puts an interesting spin on that. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Oct 17, 2018

    Poser does not miss a beat with its second issue. It's a solid slasher story that is sure to delight any fans of the genre. The added mystery as to who is behind the mask takes the horror to new heights. Each page turn gets bloodier and I can't wait to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Joshua Rathbun Oct 3, 2018

    Another great issue. Maybe not one for the squeamish but like I had stated in another interview, if you like your slasher horror films or horror stuff, Poser is definitely a great book that you should be reading. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - christinembruce Oct 2, 2018

    Poser is an admirable addition to the horror comic genre, there's no denying that. It's just that it's an overdone premise. It's got a creepy villain who may or may not be reborn from a watery grave, characters who already seem to be falling into the classic tropes despite breaking molds in terms of representation, and love quadrangles that will likely end in death. That said, I'm going to push aside those horror movie expectations that Poser is only too happy to adhere to and at the very least, the art will make it worth my time. Read Full Review
