Additional Information

Story Synopsis:

Taking inspiration from neo-noir films and comics, Lad is set in a world that is similar to ours but yet feels hauntingly different.

The Family conduct their criminal activities from the Beacon Lodge. They have been for a while and everyone knows that the town belongs to The Family. There is however one place where no Family Member would dare set foot: The Forest.

Engulfing most of the town's perimeter, The Forest is home to a mysterious entity known only as The Hermit. For as long as Lad can remember there's been one mantra in The Family: leave The Hermit alone and The Hermit leaves The Family alone. So why was Dad, the patriarchal leader of The Family found savagely beaten and barely clinging on to life just outside The Forest?

Brit flavoured gangland horror

A wonderful start and a series I am eager to read more of. The hard-edged dialogue has a distinctly British feel that gives Lad a unique spark and the way the story gradually morps from gangland thriller into a tale with horror in its veins makes it fresh, engaging comic with great artwork. Excellent stuff!

This is one of those gems that I love Comichaus for. I clicked on Lad with no real idea of what to expect but I was glad i did. Lots of layers to this one, I'll be interested to see where it goes.
