Luna Park


Written by Kevin Baker; Illustrated by Danijel Zezelj

Nov 17, 2009 Comic Books Web Exclusive

It might be appropriate that I had a bit of a fever when I was reading Luna Park, the new hardcover graphic novel from Vertigo/DC written by Kevin Baker and illustrated by Danijel Zezelj.  More

At first glance The Strokes and Kiss wouldn't seem to have much in common, but as The Strokes continue to not release Strokes albums and instead put out solo and side projects, they become less and less the sum of their parts—much like that time each KISS member released his own solo record. More

Things get a whole lot weirder in the second night of The Prisoner as the ruminations on paranoia, betrayal, family, desire, and dreams become both subtler and more jarring. More

The music is injected with a palpable tension. Call it sexual, existential, spiritual—no matter, there is a real unease and darkness that permeates their work. They ride it like a wave. More
