I'm continually impressed by Oliver, who definitely feels like a UK writer. He creates interesting, unusual characters, has a great sense of pacing and tension, uses historical allusions to lend depth to his...more
While I prefer my beloved House of Secrets, Meltdown is right down the street, and those dudes know a thing or 2 about comics as well. And they were consistently putting this book in their "employee picks" section. And when I asked, everyone said "oh, you gotta read it!" And so I did.
And I gotta say, it was pret...more
Tony Moore, schon durch "Walking Dead: Days gone bye" einer meiner absoluten Lieblingszeichner, setzt hier nochmal einen drauf. Unterstützt durch die herausragende Kolorierung - alles ist schmierig, fettig, ranzig - wird hier ein Ekelfeuerwerk erster Klasse abgebrannt.

Exterminators is the tale of the thin line between controlling a pest problem and being overrun. The concept, and the art that goes with it, is so, so freaky. The only part...more
Fresh out of prison our protagonist joins up with his stepfather's extermination company and steps straight into a brewing war with a new breed of cockroaches. There are nasty bugs, nastier exterminators, an evil corporation, love interests, did I mention the nasty bugs?
Really dug this one.
