The ultimate heist! It has been the subject of books, movies and comics throughout history with different types of teams and prizes through all genres. Jackpot! #1 from Aftershock comics is the latest comic to tackle the subject with the promise saying they are going to be pulling off the greatest scam in human history.
When I first saw Gwenpool grace a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars last year, I knew deep down that this would not be the last time I would see her. Immediately the internet lit up with both positive and negative reactions towards Gwenpool. Spider-Gwen had skyrocketed in popularity and now Gwenpool has appeared.
I love smart, original horror. Books like The Haunting of Hill House. Movies like Hellraiser. Videogames like Fatal Frame. I love horror that goes beyond the undead, serial murderer slicing up teenagers and raises questions that aren’t inherently scary like repressed memories or sexual desire. It affects you more and stays with you for a lasting horror experience. So imagine my surprise that I’d yet to hear about Survivors’ Club, a comic series seven issues in that’s dark and twisted and definitely outside the box.
