The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of SCUM OF THE EARTH #1 from Action Lab Entertainment. Mark Bertolini writes and Rob Croonenborghs draws and colors.

True and Laura are on a journey. They’re not very nice people, I’m afraid, and pretty much everyone they meet come to understand that eventually. There’s also someone following them, tracking them down. And as cliché as it sounds, things are very much not as they seem.

It is impressively difficult to talk about this book without giving up a load of spoilers. I really don’t want to spoil any of it, though, so I’m going to try. Laura is quite obviously some level of psycho, and we can’t really be sure what True is at all (he refers to himself as The True Bastard, but without context). It’s a major-league murderous rampage, and there’s enough glimpses of the backstory that it’s obvious that the ending will be worth the wait.

If you’re into ultra-violence, gory art and weird mystery, you’ll definitely want to pick up this book. I know I’m glad I did.

SCUM OF THE EARTH #1 is available now at your FLCS or at actionlabcomics.com.
