Lee Adam Herold is an insane genius. His webcomic Chopping Block is evidence enough, but "Hell With the Lid Taken Off" seals the deal. It's engrossing, terrifying, endearing, claustrophobic, heartbreaking -- a nightmare from which you don't want to awaken, because you're afraid to miss what happens next. I can't wait to read the next installment.
