5.0 out of 5 stars Fun take on the horror film genre 11 May 2010
By Jeffrey Tschiltsch - Published on
This is a really fun book and a great value for the money, with terrific art and tight storytelling. Similar to how the creators had fun with combining Airport-style disaster flicks and zombies in The Last Resort, here they play the "what if" game with a couple of struggling comic book writers who hit it big with a slasher horror comic, only to see life imitate art with some violent consequences. There's a little "inside baseball" as well with some comic industry tales which help set the main characters within the story - they are living their dream life, meeting people and doing things they'd only imagined, and then all hell breaks loose. If your a fan of Palmiotti and Gray then you need this book, and if you haven't tried them yet pick this up, the price is right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome with a side of violent fun 12 May 2010
By Lisa McCarty - Published on
Random Acts of Violence is a chance to see what a great team Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray are in the comic industry. If you have been interested in their dynamic, this is a perfect place to see how creative, and twisted they can be, in a good way ;) This story has all the elements that make a horror story great. Giancarlo Caracuzzo artwork is amazing and helps bring the characters, and violence, to life. I recommended this for the horror fans out there, as well as anyone that wants an entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea, Rushed Ending 23 May 2010
By Enrique Treviño and Yuliia Glushchenko - Published on
This comic, initially solicited as "Splatterman", starts with two young comic artists that have just finished writing a horror comic book. The comic they write becomes a hit and it leads to serial killer copycats.

The comic is much better than I thought it would be. The story is very good and it made me very interested in its resolution. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed with the end. While the last 2 pages are very good, the climax that came a little bit before was disappointing to me. I guess I was mainly bothered by one page, but I won't spoil the story to other readers.

Since the comic was a great read overall, I would still recommend checking it out. I had a lot of fun reading it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun slasher movie in graphic novel form! 20 May 2010
By Christos Gage - Published on
Random Acts of Violence is a fun ride that combines the best of grindhouse horror films with a behind-the-scenes look at self-publishing in the comic book industry. While it's certainly not for the squeamish, I was actually pleasantly surprised to find out that the violence wasn't as graphic as I expected; much of it was left to the imagination, which to me is more horrifying. The art was effectively gritty and set the mood well. The done-in-one graphic novel format was an excellent choice for this story as it reads like a movie. I'd recommend it for any fans of slasher films, and if you're interested in the behind-the-scenes aspects of the comic book industry you'll get extra enjoyment of those elements.
2.0 out of 5 stars mediocre hollywood style slasher 27 Jun. 2010
By Evzenie Reitmayerova - Published on
basically it is just a mediocre hollywood style slasher.
two comic creators visit comics cons to sign their comics, they talk about comics and comics creators... kinda funny for comics fans.
even though the book is bloody the plot still feels like any hollywood PG-13 mediocre slasher movie.
