Going into Brik #1, I was just as excited as I usually am. New mini-series from Oni Press? Count me in! But when I got about a third of the way into this first issue, all I felt was disappointment. Not to say the comic is horrible, just not very new or original. Perhaps it is just the timing, but it left me feeling let down.
Curious, oh wondrous reader? Of course you are. Continue on for more information.
Taking Eden Issues #1–4

Release Date: December, 2012

Jason Beckwith takes us into the murky depths of a sordid, occult-tinged club scene in his new series Taking Eden. The comic’s genesis was a writing exercise between Beckwith and Malcolm Johnson while working at a design agency. Beckwith ran forward with their idea, refining the story over the past 10 years. The result is a wonderfully dark indie comic that mixes novel-like, scene-setting, third-person narration with sequential art.
