Last month Boom! Studios debuted a new miniseries by Clive Barker. We talked about it on the podcast the week it came out. It's a pretty trippy book with some heavy themes. Then again, what else would you expect from the mind of Clive Barker?

Boom! Studios gave us an exclusive look at next week's issue. I encourage you to seek out the first issue and check this out as well. Warning, there's some foul language present.

Not bad! I'd be willing to try an issue to see how I feel about it.

@jonny_anonymous: It's Mark Miller not Millar from kick ass, not sure if you meant that sorry if you knew the distinction :-)

It go's against some religions, I mean in a very strong way. at least from what read in the preview..

Looks great, but probably not something I'll be picking up. While I liked the preview, I couldn't get over the feeling that it was engineered, in some capacity, to intentionally offend, and in some cases that okay, but I prefer a little subtlety rather than simply being bludgeoned with intentional offense.

Looks really text heavy, which can work, but can also make reading a comic monotonous . Hopefully it works here.
