Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water...something ready to exact revenge on the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture that's led her astray. Fan-favorite JIM ZUB (WAYWARD, Thunderbolts) and newcomer DJIBRIL MORISSETTE-PHAN (The Ultimates, All-New Wolverine) tear into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB, a dramatic horror story about fame and failure. The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can't toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them more

    So this book is extremely hard to review. While I enjoyed it there isn't much to it. There isn't any character development, no real plot, not much of anything other than a woman getting possessed by some demon/monster being and getting her revenge on the people who wronged her in the past. That's it. We don't even really get any info on what this creature is. The entire story is as thin as the paper its printed on. But I really liked it. It almost seems like the writers release therapy getting out all the aggression and anger they had. I found myself almost rooting for Farrah as she got her revenge in wonderfully gory action. While the story may be a bit thin the art work is quite good giving each character a solid design and the monster inside of Farrah is grotesquely perfect! If you're looking for something with a ton of plot that twists and turns you will want to stay far away from this book. If you're looking for a simple revenge story with plenty of over the top blood and gore this is the perfect quick read!
