REVIEWS

Odd Schnozz and the Odd Squad is an accessible, enjoyable origin story that’s alternately sweet and suspenseful, but always delightfully weird.”

Geek Dad 

“Mix King of the Hill with Daria and blast it with gamma radiation, and you’ll have a good sense of the wild world that newcomer Burandt and Culver (Edison Rex) have created.”

– Publisher’s Weekly

“[I]ntense action filled panels, eye-popping color and all from a female fronted (squeak!) punk rock brood… get your hands on this piece of punk perfection…”

– Broke Ass Stuart

“The story is crazy, the art colorfully off the wall, and the soundtrack is fun to hum along. Odd Schnozz and the Odd Squad is a total entertainment package.”

Fan Girl Nation

” [R]eally well paced […] Jeffrey Burandt, the writer, does a good job of setting the stage while drawing from all of these different touchstones without getting hacky or trying too hard. Dennis Culver’s art is classic, clean, and easy to follow.”

Topless Robot

“Robo-animals, hard rocking teens, and secret spy guys, oh my! […] [W]riter Jeffrey Burandt succeeds in keeping the levity and humor that have become the signature tone of Odd Schnozz and The Odd Squad. […] Culver’s clean lines heighten the action by ensuring each panel flows seamlessly from one to the next; never blurring the exposition making each twist and turn vibrantly clear.

Hang Ten

A young man with scruffy cheeks and chin-length hair told me to hang ten today. He was what I can only describe as the surfer type, with matching attire as you might imagine. When I got home, I did exactly as he instructed: I hung ten.

After hanging the first five, I admit my satisfaction. Hanging another five seemed superfluous—but then I had never hung ten before, and had no experience by which to judge whether hanging five was in any way more appropriate than hanging a full ten. Besides, the young man had clearly told me to, “hang ten.” If anything, I consider myself to be diligent in my obligations to others. So, despite my own satisfaction, I continued the act of hanging.

Hanging the sixth was quite a different experience. I felt a distinct rush, not unlike brushing against someone you secretly admire, or spotting an enemy advancing towards you from across the street.  My breath shortened and blood quickened. That young man knew what he was talking about! I quickly hung a seventh.

By the eighth, I was reeling. My entire body—every freckle, every mole divided by a hair, every fingernail, wrinkle and tooth—my every part burned with erotic possibilities . But soon my reverie waned, so I hung a ninth. Alas, the bliss brought began to walk apace, stepping further in stride with each passing moment. Oh, that ninth hanging! Pure torture! Would the tenth return the sexual—no, no—the spiritual satisfaction that the eighth had provided for the seventh?  The seventh for the eighth?  Or would this hanging of ten simply cast me further from what I can only describe as a “sphere of  gratification?” Depressed, I sat in silence for many a moment, contemplating the various possibilities. My heart hung heavy while awaiting the act decision would bring. Not knowing what to do, I sat there, exhilaration fleeing my body, dispersing outwards into the chilly night. Shaking, I hung the tenth.

Nothing.

It was gone.

Several days later, I saw the surfer guy across the street and quickly advanced upon him. Meeting his eyes with my own, I uttered two distinct words. The surfer’s eyes widened with horror.

Blood + Brains

B+B01_jefwritesB+B02_jefwritesB+B03_jefwritesB+B04_jefwritesB+B05_jefwrites

BLOOD + BRAINS by Jeffrey Burandt and Dean Haspiel was first published in December of 2012 in Image Comics’ Creator Owned Heroes #7, which you can buy now, digitally, on Comixology by clicking HERE.

Pitched as a full-length graphic novel, Blood + Brains takes the “vampires vs. zombies” premise, and pushes it to a whole new, adrenaline-infused level, where the ubiquitous zombie horde is but the first wave of monsters our protagonists must survive as they head out on a death-race, cattle-drive against werewolf motorcycle gangs, chupacabra long-haul truckers, and creepy, cancerous mutants. Penny Dreadful meets Death Race 2000.
