Katrina Hates the Dead: About to earn $2.99 of my hard earned silver




I picked up a preview teaser copy of Katrina Hates the Dead through an Instafreebie link. This was my first time using Instafreebie and probably my last. Let's handle the IFreeb issue first before we talk comics.

Instafreebie is a website/App that allows authors and artists to set up giveaways and route them through an authorized system that helps diminish piracy by tracking valid app download connections. Pretty cool idea. The problem is spam email. By downloading anything you are basically giving carte blanche access for someone to email you with marketing junk. These are usually authors you showed interest in, but many of these authors have no idea about email and mailing list etiquette. I suggest avoiding this system. If you are routed there, just stop and track down the author directly.

Now! On to Katrina!

I do not have a ton to say yet. The Katrina comic I gained access to was a single 22 page issue of awesome. The apocalypse makes landfall and humanity is screwed. After the demons and undead get bored with pillaging and destroying.. They head into the suburbs and settle down.

Katrina works a shit job. She kicks the ass of anything undead that gets in her way and kills it a second time. The humor in this is similar to what I like about Rick and Morty: a bit irreverent, a bit crass, pretty funny.

Amazon apparently sells a full Trade Paperback at 140 pages for under three dollars (at the time of writing this) which if the rest is as good as this single issue was, is a steal. After finishing the entire TPB I may choose to perform a full review.

Buying media via links on this site costs you nothing extra. It does however help me pay for cheap comics and books.
Consider buying a copy of this for yourself or your local library


Product Description:
What would you do during the Apocalypse? How would you survive?

Those are the questions that have plagued Katrina for years. All the good boys and girls were raptured up to Heaven, leaving the rest of humanity to ask a single, solitary question: “Why not me?”

Hellspawn rose from Hell and rampaged across the world, eviscerating all they came across. It was bedlam, Hell on Earth. There was nothing anybody could do to stop it.

Then the Hellspawn got bored and settled for a quiet life in the suburbs. They squatted in the homes of the people they once mercilessly murdered.

And that’s where Katrina Hates the Dead starts. Humanity survived the rampaging demons and now has to work and live alongside them. They steal all the good jobs, and leave humanity cowering is squalor.

Katrina is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end. She fights minotaurs, Cerebus dogs, zombies, demons, and more, as she fights across the plains of oblivion.

But the book also explored the deep pain and angst of a society that was forsaken by god, decimated by Satan, and left to live in hunger.

And yet humanity is strong. They persist. But everything has a breaking point, and after watching friend after friend die at the unforgiving and unjust hands of fate, Katrina’s had enough and sets out to face off with the Devil to earn back her old life.

AbyssRium (IDLE Idea Factory) + Strategy

Tap games are a dime a dozen in the mobile world. Most (as is AbyssRium) are free with ad-supported revenue and/or provide efficiency cheats in a store.

AbyssRium sets itself apart from other tap games by leveraging a unique concept. In a Synthetic ocean, you are the ever loving caretaker of a talking 'Coralite', which to the best of our perceptions is an underwater volcanic vent. The point of the game is to build strength and vitality for your volcano and its surrounding wild life; evolving animals and fortifying new types of coral. As each element of your world is enhanced, you elicit more vitality from the creatures for use in evolution.
It is easiest to think of your mobile device as the side of a giant fish tank, and you are going to be tapping on the glass. While you were told in life this was bad for an aquarium, in AbyssRium, your Coralite considers this loving attention. It smiles at you, gives on screen hints, and makes a slightly disturbing orgasm face every time y…

Anne of Green Gables: Hell to the graphic novel YEAH!

I grew up eating a lot of cheesy macaroni and hanging around women who obsessed over Anne of Green Gables. They watched the films, read the books, pretended to be the characters. I understood macaroni but failed to understand the pull people had for Avonlea.

As I got older, I gained an appreciation. My reading branched out to more than just Stephen King and Hardy Boys. I read the first book in the series and evolved into a big bearded dude who doesn't change the channel when some variation comes on the Hallmark channel. Netflix launched 'Anne with an E' and I holed up in the bedroom with my wife to consume it.

I nearly peed myself when I found out a new Graphic Novel was slated for release.



PREORDER! October 24th Release date.

River Queens: Keeping good company with Huck and Hemingway

Pre-Release, publication set for 10/17/18
A boat is a hole in the water you throw money into,” is one of thousands of sayings that denies the truth which every sailor respects: a boat is conduct into a hostile environment. Water is a hostile environment. Seafarers are so afraid of it that we make jokes about running aground, catching fire, and blowing up; accidents happen. But that danger is the bond that holds together otherwise free-spirited individuals into one cohesive lot.
- River Queens
Based on a review copy of the book, I was pleased that my initial impressions were shallow. Initial thoughts (after reading the leaf notes alone) were a presented heavy handedness, calling hail to the great American novel as many small publications aspire every year. Determining what I was actually to be reading required cracking the first page and just taking it on directly. The title of the book, ‘River Queens: Saucy boat, stout mates, spotted dog, America’ supported a potential hyperbolic w…
