EVERYTHING is a gleaming new mega-department store which arrives to extraordinary thrill-and rapidly escalates to inexplicable mania in the small town of Holland, Michigan. When random hellish fires and unshakable psychic disturbances start to overtake the community, a few-like depressive out-of-towner Lori and a suspicious local named Rick-begin to suspect EVERYTHING and its catalog-perfect manger, Shirley. Who-or what-exactly is in charge here . . . and what insidious plans are in store? From Christopher Cantwell, acclaimed writer of She Could Fly and co-creator of AMC;s Halt and Catch Fire, and celebrated artist I.N.J. Culbard (The New Deadwardians, Brink) comes a new monthly ongoing series. Everything: a truly bizarre story about the most horrifying pursuit of happiness you've ever read.

Set in a giant department store called Everything, this series is described by the author with this sentence, "What if the Everything store was the Overlook Hotel?" As this is an ongoing, we're only just at the part where Jack Nicholson is being interviewed. It's too early to call because we could end up with elevators spewing blood, or we might get badly animated hedge animals made out of pipe-cleaners. Highly recommended for those willing to take a chance on spinning the wheel and getting the Shining...or the Langoliers.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
