    It's like Lovecraft giving a clown an inappropriate massage.

    Splendid.

    Just read a nutshell summary of this book - whose name was known to me somehow but not its central idea - online this week, and then I find THIS! Thanks! Can't wait to see where it goes.

    That was certainly one of the weirder titles I've come across. I'll probably have to buy the trade when it comes out.

    Wait...it's a town...inside a giant sea creature. Wow.

    Is it horrible that my first question is "what do they eat?"

    @Artemis
    Uh, Seafood, mostly, I'd imagine. I can't see that the poor creature they're inside gets much nutrition out of what it eats, as I'm sure that lot just steal it for themselves.

    I just read the previews they have up on the site. Very interesting, I must say.

    @ Artemis: Mostly moulds and rats, but the posh nobs in the First Class District get the pick of whatever seafood comes down the swallowchute. Generally that constitutes confused dolphins and semi-digested fish, but you've got to work with what you've got.

    The question of how "The Beast" gets its nutrition is a very good one... Answers, of course, are coming.

    Liked this a lot. Echoes of Gormenghast, which is a very good thing. But inside something's guts. Which is better.

    i got the issue when it came out. not seen the other issues yet. though i do have the feel that it would be better as a trade, any chance of that? or is it wait and see how it does first?

    Brilliant, and maybe the best setting I've ever seen. I'll definitely follow this series.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    That looks great - consider one paperback sold.

    @remotepush

    It's hard to imagine Image won't publish a paperback of Gutsville when the serial concludes.

    You're a very strange man, mister spurious. Good comic though. And that Irving fellow makes very pretty pages.
  9.  (1480.18)
    This is quite an excellent book. I loved the last page, such a surprise. I'll have to pick up the paperback when it comes out.
