Near as I can tell, this is a story about a man, a woman, and a critter that can inhabit other people’s bodies. So not quite like being a cyber identity thief, but more of being able to take over and control your body, subdue your personality, all the while not sure if you can see what the critter is doing. The whole idea is spooky; there you are lying in bed after being with your girlfriend and up comes a shuffling wheezing monster who takes over everything about your personality. Based on the book, I am thinking that there is not a lot of room here for being able to read the engrams of the person you have taken over other than superficial because the critter keeps on making mistakes, and has a pretty bad temper problem, as well as a pile of credit cards that are really hard to explain when they are all in someone else’s names.
Sometimes it just does not pay to live in an apartment complex, and this is a place you really don’t want to go live, at least not with this land lord.
Overall this is an interesting comic book, approximately 100 pages, and will keep you on your toes. The art work is different, dark, moody, at times interesting in an arty way. Megan O’Keef does an interesting job of floating the idea of what a shell monster would be like. The story line helps keep you engaged, but it is the combination of almost a minimalist story line along with dark brooding art work that helps define the book. Overall I am going to give this a 4.5 of 5 stars, the only reason for dinging ½ of a star off this one is that the book was hard for me to follow at times. That does not mean that others will not have a blast with this book, because it overall is a worthy read. You should check out the video below, and you can pick up the comic book over on either the Fanboy Comics site or over on the site for the comic book itself on ecrater. Overall you could and will spend your money wisely on this one, it is at least an entertaining read, and the monster is just downright wickedly well done.
