Review: Undone by Blood or the Other Side of Eden #2

It’s the 1930s and Silvano Luna Del Rio works as a postman in Buttar, Texas. Silvano is also planning on robbing the first skyscraper West of the Mississippi.

But, like the previous volume, Silvano’s story is told side by side with an old west novel featuring the gunslinger Solomon Eaton.

Review: I Breathed a Body #1

I Breathed a Body #1

With a bit of trypophobia, making it through I Breathed a Body #1 was a bit rough. The imagery kept me uneasy and a bit squeamish. But getting through that, I Breathed a Body #1 is an interesting story about the power of technology and social networking.

Written by Zac Thompson, I Breathed a Body #1 introduces us to a social network and its star. A punk of a kid whose pranks hurt individuals, the apologies are hollow, and whose views deliver a lot of revenue.

There’s really something interesting here as the discussion about the power of technology companies and their ability to manipulate individuals. There’s also really smart discussion of the spiraling of technology and the rewarding bad behavior. These are real-world issues discussed today, real issues being debated.

Thompson has laid the groundwork for a horror story with a much deeper meaning to it. It does what a lot of horror does, deliver an examination of something beyond scares.

And those scares and unease are delivered by Andy MacDonald. The art is fantastic and kept me off-centered the entire time. There’s something to it that delivers an experience that’s both clean and sterilized and at the same time with a slight Hellraiser vibe about it. With Triona Farrell‘s color and Hassan Otsmae-Elhaou‘s lettering, the visuals keep me off-centered and a little nauseous. It’s probably how I should really feel about social media and the power of tech companies honestly.

Despite my trypophobia, I Breathed a Body #1 is an intriguing start of a series. There’s a lot to chew on for a comic that clearly has something to say. Things will be interesting to see where they go from here and what exactly is on these creator’s minds.

UNDONE BY BLOOD or THE OTHER SIDE OF EDEN #1

Writers: Lonnie Nadler & Zac Thompson
Artist: Sami Kivelä
Colorist: Jason Wordie

$4.99 / 32 Pages / Color / 3/03/2021

The early 1930’s: The height of the Great Depression and beginning of the Dust Bowl. Silvano Luna Del Rio works as a postman in Buttar, Texas. Reeling from a tragic past, with only a gun and a Western novel to his name, Silvano sets out to take back from the country that took so much from him by robbing the first skyscraper West of the Mississippi. But acts of retribution are never as simple as they seem, as his target is home to an eccentric fraternal brotherhood hiding their own dark secrets.

By Silvano’s side is an old west novel featuring famed gunslinger Solomon Eaton. As both stories unfold simultaneously, in true UNDONE BY BLOOD fashion, the mythic Western informs choices in reality, for better or worse.

From the minds of Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson (The Dregs, X-Men, HER INFERNAL
DESCENT) and artist Sami Kivelä (Abbot, Tommy Gun Wizards) comes the next story in the
critically acclaimed neo-western series that depicts the hard truths of seeking vengeance in the real world.

Each issue of UNDONE BY BLOOD OR THE OTHER SIDE OF EDEN has 24 pages of story and art and cardboard stock covers!
