Thank you! The upside to an unexpected absence is there are books that we can do now that I have been waiting to read with HOH.

this was a great read. I saw it was described as Lost meets the apocalypse and that’s pretty accurate. unique take on a story we’ve seen before.

I had no idea what to expect from this (and I really enjoy how unassuming it seems from the outside :full_moon_with_face:) but it’s exactly the kind of creepy weird book I tend to enjoy, more often than not. The premise might seem like well worn territory, but this definitely felt like it was doing it’s own thing. I’ve been hit or miss w/ Tynion at times, but this is one I’d recommend.

I probably can’t say enough good things about the artwork and how well it goes with the writing—art can really ruin things for me if it doesn’t work. Even if I got a little lost at times and had to reread to make sure I understood, I didn’t mind, and the art played a big role in that for me, I think. :purple_heart: Well done.

I believe Nightmare Country 1 lands in the library next month…10/11. :eyes:

It does!!! That series is fun but I need to catch up with the issues I have.

I agree the covers do a great job of steering my expectations in one direction and then the story goes for the jugular, especially issue one.

He is one of the writers that I seem to like most of the time but every now and then he seems to go off track.

I am really happy that you enjoyed this series. We will be returning to this in about a year and a half as there was a delay. Issue 9 was released in May and issue 10 just came out or is about to come out. (Still gotta get my books this week.)

Has it been 4 years now? Goodness, what a reality check for me. I was here from when they opened their doors pretty much as well. Definitely happy cake day to another old fogey of these forums, @D4RK5TARZ.

Couldn’t find a good pic of Ice so used figure. Then realized I just dropped around 50 of her, on Just Gorgeous from The new Human Target series. Could’ve grabbed one of those. But, it loaded & all is well. Hope it was a great one buddy!!!

I was just coming to correct that lol. Was a second too late. I was actually in the middle of posting & realized I put Hitman, not Human Target. Hitman is great too tho!!!
