You won’t find it on any map, but if you happen to be driving down Route 66 late at night and you’re truly desperate for shelter, sanctuary or secrecy, you might see a battered sign on the side of the road: The Pierrot Courts Hotel. – where many check in but few check out.

A wrong turn down a dead end road. A car that won’t start. An unspeakable evil emerges from the darkness. No phones. No weapons. No escape. Think you’ve seen this all before? Think again. When a girls softball team takes a shortcut through the Florida Everglades, they veer off the path towards a night they’ll never forget – drinking, dancing – one last hurrah before college starts and they go their separate ways. When they stumble into a trap set by a murderous cult, the stage is set for a night of blood-soaked carnage, but the cult has never dealt with victims who are ready to fight back.

“The year is 3333. Earth is in a state of recovery. Vampires are real, and though far less populous, they thrive alongside humans in the Japanese engineered mega city known as Asylum. People have come to understand that some Immortals are good, some are bad, and most navigate the world without incident. There is peace. That is, until now. Someone is brutally murdering vampires. And Detective Harper Halloway has been assigned to the case. To solve it, she’ll have to unearth a much deeper truth: the future of humanity has been edited.”
We’re still lacking new comics, still, but that won’t stop us from talking comics, and gives me a chance to catch up on my To Be Read pile. So here’s what I’ve read, recently, including things I’ve read for more fleshed out reviews on Outright Geekery and reading picks:
What is NTYCBD? Well, since New Comic Book Day is on hold until who knows when, the tag NTYCBD (New To You Comic Book Day) has been floating around online. And I figured that this was the perfect opportunity to catch up on some of the last issues I picked up in stores before working on my To Be Read pile.
If any of these sound interesting, contact your local shops and see if they have them in stock! If so, and if they’re offering it, use the mail or curbside pick up options, and help support shops during all of this. If your shop doesn’t have them, closed temporarily, etc: some of these publishers are offering their books through their websites.
So, let’s do some mini reviews of what I read, today.
“A geopolitical drama with monster mythos, Burning Field explores the evil that lurks when greed drives one to drill too deep into the unknown.
Dana Atkinson, a dishonorably discharged army investigator, is pulled back to the Middle East when a group of American oil technicians disappear under bizarre circumstances. With the help of an Iraqi investigator, what Dana discovers is unimaginable: a series of unusual incidents at the drill site lead her and her unlikely ally to discover a mythic evil that has been released, one that threatens both the lives of the entire region and the fragile peace that exists.”
