Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alex de Campi is well known for her 2005 mini-series Smoke which was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Limited Series, and her 2006 manga series, Kat & Mouse. De Campi's work falls outside the superhero genre, with Smoke being a political thriller, and Kat & Mouse detailing the adventures of two mystery-solving high school students (a "CSI for tweens"); she has published work for children and for the European market. De Campi has also ventured into filmmaking, directing a number of music videos, The author lives in London, England, UK.

Review:

"Grindhouse movies, made-on-the-cheap, action- and gore-packed B-films, were the fodder of cheap-seat cinemas and drive-ins up through the '80s. Directors like Quentin Tarantino repopularized the genre in the 2000s, and, here, writer De Campi (Smoke/Ashes) and a gang of lively artists — among them Francesco Francavilla and Dan Panosian — bring their bloodshed and havoc to the comics page. Like a classic midnight movie show, it's a double feature, filled with sex, violence, fast cars and fast women — even 'coming attractions' in the form of a grindhouse-style movie poster gallery. The first story puts the 'bee' in 'B-movie': southern belles, transformed into honey-sucking killer bees, swarm their small town wreaking over-the-top carnage until the town's single savvy police officer, a one-eyed female cop, gets called in. The second tale is set aboard a prison spaceship bound for exile in a distant solar system; the all-nubile, all-female (of course) prisoners riot against the clone guards and their sadistic warden in a bloody breakout. It's all just about as violent, outrageous, and in-your-face as you'd expect from the title — which also makes it a adrenaline-filled thrill ride, packed with explosions, intestines, and drily witty quips. Mature content." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
