Mad, Bad and Dangerously readable SLG's Lord Byron flounces into TPB format in August

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 6/7/07

Dark lord of the night or unbearable poseur?* Explore the gloom- and drama-laden world of Lord Byron, as SLG/Eyemelt's Byron: Mad, Bad and Dangerous slouches to gothic life this August in comic stores everywhere.

Both celebrating and skewering the subculture that keeps eyeliner production profitable, Byron is a 136-page graphic novel collecting the razor-witted SLG Publishing series, previously available in individual issues on the SLG affiliate site Eyemelt.com.

"How can you not laugh at the darkity dark-clad goths? They are so serious. It's a brilliant vehicle for satire," says series creator Karl Christian Krumpholz. "I've done the club scene and still own a complete set of Nick Cave and Bauhaus CDs. I've seen how certain people in the scene take themselves way to seriously and like to think of themselves as a dark shadow cut from an even darker swash of black velvet. The idea of Byron started with wondering what would happen when they encountered the face of real evil. Would they run screaming? Or want to be one of the villains?" [more]

Discreet Young Gentleman
By MJ Pearson
Published by Seventh Window Publications

Review by Logan

A few months ago I was sitting at home one Sunday morning with nothing to do. After an hour of milling about, I decided to pick up Discreet Young Gentleman by MJ Pearson. The cover alone made me buy the book. I mean, come on... Just look at that package!

When I finally opened the book and started to read, I was surprised to say the least. While I knew beforehand that the story was set in the 19th century, I didn't realize that it would be such a period piece. MJ Perason obviously did a lot of research into the era. There are detailed descriptions of the customs, the clothing, the road system, and even the various towns and their local ghost stories. I felt that I was reading one of those "trashy" romance novels you see at Walgreens, only this one had a closeted gay lead character. [more]

Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds
By Phillip J. Bartell and Q. Allan Brocka
Starring: Jim Verraros, Emily Brooke Hands, Rebekah Kochan, Marco Dapper,
Brett Chukerman, and more
Studio: Automat Pictures

Review by Logan

Holy Hot Damn! There's one reason, and one reason only to watch Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds. The reason: Marco "I'm the fucking hottest mother-effer ever" Dapper. This drop dead gorgeous hunk of man meat drops trou in the first few minutes of the movie while he models for an art class. Marco Dapper's chiseled abs, pouty lips, perfectly sculpted pecs, ass, legs, and his low-hangers steal the show right off the bat (ahem). [more]

Runaways Vol. 3
By Brian K. Vaughn, Adrian Alphona, Mike Norton
Published by Marvel Comics

Review by Logan

While in New Jersey recently, I read Runaways Volume 3 (hardcover). I've enjoyed following this comic over the past year or so in hardcover trades. The characters are fun and the premise is novel. I like that Brian K. Vaughn created characters with interesting powers and origins stories.

Spoiler alert! Don't read any further if you don't want the whole thing spoiled. [more]

The Undercover Economist
By Tim Harford
Published by Random House Trade

Review by Logan

A few weeks back I was at Books Inc. and was just browsing the shelves. One of the staff recommendations was The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford. I never took an Economics class in high school or college. So, I always feel this slight insecurity when economics comes up in the course of a conversation. I figured I'd pick up the book and see if I could start to fill the gap in my education. [more]
