Easy Way

The goal of my blog is to tell you about stuff that I find interesting in hopes that whomever is reading finds it intriguing enough to investigate further, or, already has a formed opinion on the subject they would like to share. Success to me is hearing back from somebody who bought/obtained something I hyped up here.
I think it's a worthy goal because it worked so well on me yesterday -- I picked up and immediately read the gripping comic, Easy Way because of the excellent recent Comicology podcast, check out the podcast.

I recently finished reading Edward Lee's Flesh Gothic. If you're not familiar with Edward Lee he writes very eroticly-charged splatter-core, which I thought I grew away from. But, after reading Lee's latest gore fest, I can say there is an unwholesome part of me that still enjoys the shock and thrill ride that only Lee can give. Flesh Gothic is the story of a mansion in Florida where a ritualistic slaughter took place. Well, clairvoyants and a reporter are called in to investigate and uncover the very depths of what a truly depraved psycho can sink too. I don't normally care for "haunted house" reads, but Flesh Gothic manages to the keep the story fresh by not focusing on the house but the inhabitants, both living and dead.
