from the Atomic Books Blog Review by Benn Ray
As my current reading stack will prove, there is an abundance of post-apocalyptic stories coming out. And so far, every one I've read has been pretty awesome, and Strzepek's Mourning Star is no different. He's laid the groundwork in this first volume for a sprawling epic post-apocalyptic story that is as complicated as it is weird - ghost-like creatures who live in our mouths and feed off our dreams, amnesiac assassins that use scissors as deftly as ninja use swords, bird-like invaders that sleep in bundles of scarves that they carry on their backs. By the end of this first book it's not clear where Strzepek is going with all this, which is kind of the point. Where does one go once civilization is destroyed (in this case by a betraying comet), and any attempt to rebuild is met with and subsequently wiped out by gangs of those who have been previously oppressed by such civilization? The Mourning Star is amusing, captivatingly illustrated, sprawling and mesmerizing. Great reading while waiting for the endtimes. (Posted on 6/18/13)
