A few weeks into his new job, Kenny has completely fallen for Francois. He spends his days caring for her property and sliding raw meat through the attic door, while spending his nights tending to Francois’ needs in the bedroom. But late one evening, Francois’ illness gives rise to a painful episode, leading her to desperately send Kenny on a mysterious errand to a rugged bayou bar. What secret elixirs lie at the bar? Does Francois’ illness connect to what lurks behind that attic door?
This series was one of my most anticipated for the entire year. The cover for the first issue was absolutely gorgeous. How could you not see this and immediately want to read?
The first issue was excellent, full of beautiful and unique artwork that really stands out. And issue two is just as great.
I love the vibes this series gives off. Horror + bayous is a big hit for me in general, though. There’s so much potential in a swampy, gator filled setting. It feels like such a perfect scenario for monsters, both real and supernatural. Anything can happen out in the middle of nowhere.
But I digress.
It Eats What Feeds It is written beautifully. The horror and mystery behind Francois and what she keeps hidden in her home is so intriguing, you can’t wait to see more revealed. Kenny feels relatable, like someone you know, if not even pieces of yourself. Kenny feels real, and it adds to the tension of the situation.
Gabriel Iumazark’s art is some of the most stand out I’ve seen in quite some time. There’s something simple and beautiful and haunting to every panel. Without fully seeing what’s hidden in the house, you get chills from it, and your imagination wants to take hold of you.
I cannot recommend It Eats What Feeds It to you enough. Grab the first two issues from Scout Comics or your local shops, and get caught up now. This is one of the most stunning books on the shelves right now, and you can’t miss it!
