The Milkman Murders
The infamous 2005 mini-series returns in an all-new deluxe hardcover edition! The horror of suburban life explodes in an orgy of mythic violence — and mild-mannered housewife, Barbara Vale, finds herself at its dark epicenter! And when you meet her family, you’ll understand why. This slice of Americana is brought to you by the twisted minds of JOE CASEY and the legendary STEVE PARKHOUSE. If you missed it the first time around, this is your chance to finally join the Tupperware party!
“A truly disturbing and original piece of horror… not for the faint of heart or those looking for spoon-fed niceties, The Milkman Murders is comics as you’ve rarely seen them before.” – ED BRUBAKER
What starts off a meek chicken stuffed with melancholia, turns decidedly steamed, broiling along until it mutates into a body of pure destructive anger.
This is MONDO, the jam-packed ‘roid-raging trade, with over 100 pages that combines all three issues of the twisted dark comedy series, plus a plethora of unused art, doodles, and odious stuff that was too unfit to appear in the regular monthly run.
Collects MONDO #1-3
