Preview: The Dark Web Only Gets Darker In Ed Piskor’s ‘Red Room’ #2
by Olly MacNamee
Written and Illustrated by Ed Piskor
“Grooming victims to be slaughtered on the DARK WEB for the enjoyment of psychopaths requires lots of work to keep them from being identified. The Poker Face organization, one of the most successful black market Red Room companies on the internet, goes through great lengths to fulfill their customers’ depraved fantasies while avoiding law enforcement every step of the way. From the creator of Hip Hop Family Tree and X-Men: Grand Design comes this ALL-NEW monthly comic book series! A cyberpunk, outlaw, splatterpunk deep dive into the subculture of criminals who live-stream and patronize webcam murders for entertainment in the darkest corners of the web with nearly untraceable crypto-currency. Who are the murderers? Who are the victims? How do we stop it? Every issue of this 12-part series is a complete, self-contained, satisfying story. As seen on Piskor’s YouTube channel sensation, Cartoonist Kayfabe!”
