Review: Black Friday #1

Black Caravan Imprint! Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. Millions of Americans pack the aisles of retail outlets all over the country battling for the best bargains. While an unlucky clean-up crew deals with the aftermath of the latest Black Friday frenzy, they discover that years of pent-up negative energy has released something very evil and dark into their superstore, which is just the way corporate wanted it.”

If you’ve ever worked retail, you know it’s hell. And in Black Friday, that’s pretty literally.

What a nightmare scenario – working Black Friday, closing up, and then realizing something is very…. wrong. And boy, did it spiral. I was totally surprised by the direction this one took, and enjoyed it quite a bit. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next issue.

The art is unique and the lettering is good. There’s something about the art that feels vaguely similar to Jhonen Vasquez and I think that vibe really works for this book.
