Elk’s Run #1

A small town with a secret. A group of boys that may be onto to it. A tragic death. A grisly murder.

Welcome to Elk’s Run.

Elk’s Run is a new mini-series by Joshua Hale Fialkov. It’s a coming of age story with a twist. Thing is, we’re not sure what that twist is yet, only that the town of Elk’s Run is one wierd fuckin’ place. There are charters that force eye-for-an-eye law to the harshest of extremes. There are tunnels you’re not supposed to be in after dark.

Yeah, it’s as cool as it sounds.

Fialkov weaves a good story with compassionate characters, and he sets a stage that you’re almost afraid to look at, but you can’t seem to tear your eyes away, either. Go pick up a copy of Elk’s Run. You’ll be better off for it.
