If you're looking for a comic filled with blood and monsters, then this is for you. It begins with a man who gets stabbed with a woman's massive tongue spike. She just yells, "Oh god it happened again", and that's it. What an opening, right?

I really enjoyed the art! Really fits the sorta... noir-horror of it. But the story was superficial. And being that it was about the superficiality of Hollywood... it was filled with unearned cynicism. In the noir tradition, everyone is bitter. Or a monster. Or a bitter monster. Or a fool. The criticisms (fame is empty, hollywood is filled with sleaze, and it's not even real art) were... too easy? Narratively unconvincing. Depends too much on character stereotypes to convey motivations and interiority. And being that I live in Southern California, I'm sensitive to criticism. Sensitive in that, well... criticisms better sound genuine because 1. it's just not going to sound right and I'll know that it's weak and 2. why are you being so harsh, dude? when you don't even caaaaare
