Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water...something ready to exact revenge on the shallow celebrity-obsessed culture that's lead her astray.

Fan favorite Jim Zub (Wayward, Thunderbolts) and newcomer Djibril Morissette-Phan tear into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB, a dramatic horror story about fame and failure.

The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can't toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them biting back...

Collects GLITTERBOMB #1-4.

I am falling somewhere in the middle with Glitterbomb. I didn't LOVE it. I didn't hate it. I am intrigued and left wanting to know more, but that is part of the downside. Feeling a little in the dark, more than I should for this being a volume. The drive of the story is there, but a lack of explanation regarding the take -over of Farrah's body left me uncommitted to the revenge actions she/it was taking.

Glitterbomb, without question, is a very unique horror story. The art is stunning and brutal and really compliments the tone of the story.

Hopefully further volumes clear up some of the holes and leave me a bit more satisfied.
