She'll need more than a rabbit's foot to get through this. Cursed at birth, Charlene 'Chuck' Manchester hires out her own bad luck, providing disaster where someone else can profit. She can get you that insurance payout fortune-for a price. But bad luck doesn't always go as planned, and when Chuck gets stuck between a dissatisfied crime boss client, a cult leader, and a dogged insurance-fraud investigator, things get... explosive. Everything that could go wrong does-and only about half of it by accident.

Need a disaster? That's what Chuck does. Bad Luck Chuck, Disaster on Demand. Chuck is Tashi Charlene Manchester. She's got a run of bad luck that can be applied to everyday situations, sort of a reverse Longshot if he was a character in a Bendis indy book.
That's really the best way I have to describe this title. A Bendis indy book that may or may not have a supernatural element. It doesn't matter either way. It works, and let's be clear its not Bendis.
Writer Lela Gwenn and artist Matthew Dow Smith have a vibe going from page one that is pretty closely attached to the term 'page turner'. Loved it.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
