This morning, I stumbled across the (relatively) new webcomic Kill 6 Billion Demons by the artist Abbadon.
In brief, it’s about a young woman who gets drawn into a nether hellworld inhabited by demonic beings. Driven initially by the fish-out-of-water setup, it quickly sets up the cultural and political conflicts of its setting. The character designs are some of the most sumptuous and intricate I’ve seen in a while; the story is surprising and compelling despite its current brevity. It’s like Alejandro Jodorowsky and Clive Barker underwent a Vulcan mind meld.
I plan to follow the comic’s progress, and I recommend fans of the dark and macabre do so as well.
