I'm Reading Comeeks

I dedicate this blog to comics in all forms, manga, autobio, superhero, art books, etc.  And of course, since I need a challenge, I've decided that I'll read and write (short) reviews for 365 comics during 2015.

The Quest is the Quest

Graveyard Quest - K C Green

Graveyard Quest is about a guy/kid/lump who works as an undertaker in his the family graveyard.  It's a family business.  Both his folks have died, leaving him to the lonely task of burying all the dead people (which turns out to be quite a few dead people).  But he's not really alone, his dead dad is there too, and he's never happy with the way things are getting done.

 

The dude takes solace in relating his troubles to his mom, whose skeleton he keeps in his nightstand.  But one morning he awakens to find his mom's bones gone.  Therefore to get her bones back and take revenge on his father, the lumpy, yet skeletal, hero must go underground...into Hell.

 

The story goes through a lot of increasingly strange scenarios as he searches for his mother's bones and eventually there is a healing, and he's able to reconcile himself to the fact that his mum has moved on.

 

It's a humorous story, with lots of weird crap going down, nice illustrations and a quick read.  Not really creepy in the slightest, the the dude's pasty white lumpy body is a little off-putting.  Fans of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim might find this similarly entertaining.
