Matthew J. Brady
reads his Black Diamond
and metaphorically puts his pedal to the metal: "But it helps to have somebody like McMillan to splash some water on you before you jump into the pool, because simply reading the back-cover summary won't prepare you for the story within. Larry Young seems to promise a 'love-letter to the 1970s drive-in movie,' but he delivers something much stranger, more of an examination of storytelling, full of misdirection as to where the plot is headed and what it's really all about... Overall, I don't know if I could recommend this unreservedly; it's too quirky and strange for somebody expecting a bunch of car chases or something. But if you're willing to open your mind a bit and try to let Young's weird energy in, it's incredibly enjoyable, and unique enough of an experience to be pretty noteworthy
. If that sounds like your kind of thing, well, you've probably already read it, but if you haven't, do check it out."
Looking forward to Halloween; like Dave Sim says, "everyone's a fanboy for something."
