Image Comics’ Hazed
The panel members looked at college life from the female perspective and discuss the body issues, sex, drugs, and sorority life as dished up by Mark Sable and Robbi Rodriguez in Image Comics’ Hazed.

Hazed is a dark comedy about three young girls’ perilous journey through the world of sororities and eating disorders. From the creator of the critically acclaimed Grounded, Hazed is to comics what “Heathers” and “Mean Girls” are to film – only smarter, meaner, and funnier!

Overall, the panel liked the original graphic novel, they just have a few problems with some of the plot points.

    Hey guys…just wanted to thank you for giving such an in-depth review of HAZED on your podcast, even if it wasn’t your cup of tea. It’s extremely hard to get non-mainstream books like this reviewed, and it means a lot when critics take it seriously.

    If you guys ever want to have me on as a guest you should have access to an e-mail. In addition to my creator-owned work I’ve got CYBORG and TWO-FACE: YEAR ONE series out. I’m no Chip Mosher, but I can be relatively amusing, and maybe I’ll even send you the 18 pages I left out of HAZED:)

    Mark, I wouldn’t say we didn’t like the comic – I believe more of us thought it was a really good book, there were just some plot point issues that brought it down to the three star rating.

    Now that we have your email address, we’ll look at getting you on the show.

    Cheers
