If you haven’t checked out this trippy Image title, imagine the X-Files meets Hunter S. Thompson. You know you have to read it now, don’t you? We covered Issue #1 way back in November 2013, in WhatchaReading’s Threat Level: Wednesday Roundup. Check out what Bob had to say then, and get ready for a wild ride. This trade paperback covers issues 1-5.
Drum Hellar. There’s no mystic experience he won’t have. No drug he won’t take. No bog man he won’t dig up and revivify in an attempt to unravel the mystery of the significant look that a peacock gave him; a journey that will ultimately lead him, his invisible ghost friend Harold, and his werewolf ex-girlfriend to a dead cow in a field, which will lead them to… Well, “The mystery is the mystery of the mystery,” as the old farmer says.
You’re just going to have to read DRUMHELLAR VOLUME ONE: BADLANDS AND BAD TRIPS by Riley Rossmo and Alex Link (the creative team behind REBEL BLOOD) to find out just what the mystery of the mystery is. This summer, the cult hit from the Image Comics’ imprint Shadowline will take you on the trip of your life, with ghost triceratops, floating babies, and prison riots.
Link’s dialogue crackles and Rossmo’s riotous art merges reality with hallucination in a tale of exploration and discovery that Multiversity Comics called “Damn near perfect.” DRUMHELLAR VOLUME ONE will be in comic book stores on May 28 and in bookstores on June 10.
