Sometimes a beautiful cover is all you need. Awhile back ago, I was walking through a local comic book store and I wanted something different. I didn’t want Superman or Batman or any other superhero who’ve I read about eight billion times before but I also didn’t want a Y: the Last Man or a MAX Punisher as I can just go to a Border’s or Barnes and Noble’s and read those. I wanted something that few knew about and even fewer have purchased. As I continued walking around, I noticed Afterworks Vol. 1. The cover, which can be seen at the right, immediately hooked me. As I read the back describing it and flipped through the pages inside, I knew I would be walking out of the store with the graphic novel in hand.

ImageAfterworks is the baby of some of the finest animators animated movies have to offer. The people who’ve worked on these two anthologies have worked on such movies and animated shows as “The Nightmare Before Christmas“, “Cars, “Lilo & Stitch“, “The Simpsons“, “A Bug’s Life” and more. Much like how each of the projects they’ve worked on are different, the stories follow suit. The stories range from being about a mentally handicapped boy playing with his younger, dead brother (”Brothers”) to a story about a battery who decides his calling in life is as a battery for a sex toy (”Working Battery”) to a love story involving zombies (”Date of the Dead”). The highlight of both volumes for me was Louis Gonzales’ stories as one dealt with a dog fight that ends in the two dogs humping and the other is about a battle over Hell fought using foosball.

Both volumes of Afterworks are fun reads and have so much diversity that that you all should be already reading them but I’ll forgive you.

To discuss.
