Branson Reese delivers a work that features alt text and has new material that’s delightful and absurd while also being called bitingly satirical, depraved yet cheerful, and eye-scratchingly humorous. This collection features moments that are insane, including God’s fallen head being chewed on by a raccoon, a man having driven a Transformer out of a funeral, and a toaster that turns against its owner. Hell Was Full stems from the webcomic which has been commented on for its bleak style that weaves into the absurdity and creates dadaist cocktails. Everything you love about the webcomic can be found in this collection with a variety of comics that range from a man using his wish to wish the genie dead to absurd characters that include M&Ms and hornets.
Post-Apocalypto was a film, an album, and a tour. Now the graphic novel has arrived with audio included. Tenacious D (the musical styling of Jack Black and Kyle Gass) have branched out their universe with this new graphic novel. This humorous and genre mash-up stems from the minds of Black as an illustrator and Gass as a writer. The movie is available on YouTube. An atomic bomb drops and now Tenacious D is cast into a world of chaos after they survive the apocalypse in true cinematic style by hiding inside of a 1950s refrigerator. The Tenacious duo quickly learns that a new kind of evil has developed as a side effect of the bomb which can only mean one thing. In order for humanity to survive the brewing evil, this duo will have to save the world. In this crazy tale of post-apocalypse, you’ll follow this duo as they venture to the White House, use a time machine, and even take an adventure into space while working through daddy issues. Post-Apocalypto is described as being hilarious yet political while also being brilliant and multi-faceted with colorful illustrations.
