Format: Paperback
I got this comic at the Thought Bubble festival, basically it is a super-great comic. Artistically, there's some great things by INJ Culbard that continue to show off his excellent talent for capturing the spirit of adventure and the strange, with some cool touches that set it apart from some of his previous horror-type comics (At The Mountains of Madness, Charles Dexter Ward etc) including some surprisingly colourful touches that help add to the jazz age sensibility.

Writing-wise you might have seen Chris Lackey and Chad Fifer's previous attempts separately in the second Lovecraft Anthology comic, but in my opinion this is a lot better. You definitely get a sense of the characters quite quickly, and nothing really feels out of place. It also feels a lot like an old, low budget horror movie (in a good way!) which is maybe not surprising since it was originally conceived as a movie script, and a lot of that charm shows up on the page.

One down-side though is that perhaps because of that old horror movie/pulp adventure feel, things can sometimes seem a little light (in the lacking depth way) and there are a few parts that I wish had been delved into a little deeper (such as the mobsters' journey) but ultimately this is a story about Lester and his friends (and sticks extremely closely to their perspective) and it carries that off exceptionally well, and with a tremendous sense of fun.

I've been listening to Chad Fifer and Chris Lackey on the HPPodcraft.com and loved hearing them talk about Lovecraft and his work. And if you love those guys, you'll love reading their graphic novel Deadbeats. I highly recommended to anyone who love wired fiction and Lovecraftian style of story telling. If there are anyone who knows how to make a Lovecraftian story, it's these guys. Buy it! You won't regret it.

Format: Paperback
My brother is into comics a lot more than me, he often tells me when something is worth getting or not, for value or sheer fun of reading. A week ago he informed me that there was a signing in Leeds with Chris Lackey one of the authors of this graphic novel and Ian Culbard, the artist.

Over the week I have picked it up just twice and flown through it! The art work is spectacular and co-insides with the characters personalities extremely well. The story is fast paced and although certain things are a little hyped up now and then, it is a truly fun read.

The only downside is that it is a VERY fast read, but that is made up with the uniqueness of the characters and their quirks which get shown and utilised straight away and thereafter throughout this graphic novel.

A great read and a great buy!

The quality of production, design, story line and jazz era setting all leads me to a sense of pride to have it on my bookshelf at home.
I loved the mixture of gangsters, lovecraft and jazz.

I wonder can we expect more of the same? I hope so!
