Review: Home Sick Pilots #1

In the summer of 1994, a haunted house walks across California. Inside is Ami, lead singer of a high school punk band—who’s been missing for weeks. How did she get there, and what do these ghosts want? Expect three-chord songs and big bloody action that’s Power Rangers meets The Shining (yes, really).

In a book that evokes a heavy Hill House vibe, while incorporating elements that feel like something out of genre (like out of the anime franchise Evangelion), we get something absolutely unique and gorgeous from a haunted house story.

There are some incredibly wonderful things about this first issue. It draws you in immediately with a phenomenal story. The fun of 90s punk nostalgia, terrifying haunted houses, and what happens when houses like that take us – it’s something very fresh in a subgenre that could easily be stale.

The colors give off this neon horror feeling that really looks beautiful on the page. Caspar Wijngaard’s art is absolutely incredible, with a sharp attention to detail, and absolutely breathtaking pages. This is art that really makes the story and brings everything to life. Truly some of the best out there.

Aditya Bidikar does some great lettering as well, and the design work by Tom Muller it top notch.

Be sure to grab this one December 9th!
