This read more like a movie screen play than a comic book and that's not a bad thing at all.
The story is a mix between Bruce Campbell's Evil Dead and Cabin in the Woods. It's a fun, roller-coaster that'll remind you of them good old 80's and 90's horror/action movies.
Also the artwork is to die for (sorry for the pun) but seriously, James Stokoe is a talent worth keeping an eye on. If you don't buy it for the story, definitely buy it for the art.
But at the end of the day, you'll want to keep it

Let's face it, I was really only here for Stokoe's art, and he doesn't disappoint. Smith's writing is hacky and stupid, relying on crude stereotypes that he doesn't even bother to deconstruct or make fun of, just letting the art carry the whole project.

A unique mix of baseball and horror, this is an enjoyable, but ultimately forgettable graphic novel. It follows a traveling baseball team who have the bad luck to enter a small town with a dark past. The resulting showdown is filled with every imaginable horror movie and baseball cliche, and is about as "over the top" as "over the top" can be. It's a diverting entertainment, if that's your cup of tea, but it never really rises above the concept. It's the art that is the real selling point -- the ...more

A very solid book that is just pure fun. There's nothing too deep going on with the writing or the story. Just some good old fashioned, B-movie grade horror that involves monsters and a washed up baseball team. This book does two things that make it stand out:

1) The art is unbelievable. Jame Skokoe is a straight up genius and this is one book in a long line of evidence to support this fact.
2) Everything possible was done to make this book look and feel exactly like it should. The packaging and

I was a Kickstarter backer for this project and am glad I decided on a whim to back. It's a pretty good story (anything baseball related works for me) and the art is truly fantastic!

Very glad some of the extras were hit money-wise as the physical book is a beauty. For my read, I took it in digitally to see how that version fared and it held up well, though I would say to grab the physical copy to really take in some of the artwork.

This book was really, really good. The characters were entertaining, the story moved at a fairly quick pace, I kept trying to guess what would happen next and was always surprised! The story is also very unique. All in all I am very, very happy with this book.

Fun, over-the-top horror tinged with humor and baseball. What more could you ask for? The oversized format is really fantastic for this volume too, really fitting the insane larger-than-life monsters drawn by Stokoe.

The artwork is gorgeous but the story leaves a whole lot to be desired. I guess it's decent fantasy stuff.
Really it's only worth it for the Stokoe art.

amazing book, and as usual STOKOE really brought his game... too bad there's a disagreement b/w Stokoe and Smith

Baseball meets horror in a visual extravaganza. The story's ok and the Stokoe art is beautiful.
