Comic Book Review: Death to Dinksville

 "Ten years ago, the town of Dinksville was horrified when Dylan Haddenfield walked into the local high school armed with a shotgun and a machete. In a bloody rampage, he shot and killed give students and decapitated a teacher. He was apprehended and sent to prison. Now he's escaped, but he's not the only threat to this once peaceful town...."

Let me start out by saying that this book is adult only. If you can't read it, that's what the tiny white box on the picture says. These books are violent, sexual and have all sorts of language. Now, don't go saying you weren't warned.

The Good : I love the art in these books. It has a very round shape to it which I know sounds like a load of nonsense but somehow that's what I think when I look at it. I like that they're bold. The covers all read like social commentary with topics of a big bad corporation and school massacres, but that's really just the tip of the iceberg. You start reading and before you know it's you're on the last page going wow..what just happened there?

The Bad : These are adult so I have to hide these from the 11 year old who is going to see these covers and want to pick them up. In all seriousness, I don't really have any complaints when it comes to these books.

The Summary : If you're an adult, like zombies, whodunits, whatjusthappenedtheres or just a really cool comic book, I'm going to suggest you go track this series down. I've read the first 3 in what I believe will be a series of 12 books and with any luck, I'll be bringing you future updates. However, I will warn you that if sex, violence or profanity is not your thing, you're not going to like these books. They will probably be offensive and we don't want anyone offended. That's bad. These books are good. Books=Good, Offended=Bad. Got it? Good. ;)

If you'd like to get your own set of Death to Dinksville books, might I suggest that you check out the website. If you just want to get your fanboy/girl on, I suggest the Facebook page.

I received a copy of these books in exchange for this review. The fact that the artist/author is from Michigan had no bearing on how awesome I said these books were. However, being from Michigan is awesome in this reviewers opinion. As always, all thoughts, comments, typos and dramatic sayings are 100% mine.
