King of the Flies
By

Rating
Set in a suburb that is both nowhere and everywhere, King of the Flies combines the intricacy and subtlety of the best European graphic novels with a hyper-detailed, controlled noir style derived from the finest American cartoonists. The book first appears to be a series of unrelated short stories, but it soon becomes obvious that these disparate episodes weave together to form a single complex narrative - revolving around Eric, a n'er-do-well, drug-taking teenager at war with his stepfather and, apparently, the whole world.

Reviews

King of the Flies is a very surreal and unsettling tale. Prius does a wonderful job creating a horror-driven universe that could really happen in real life... [I]t s definitely worth picking up if you enjoy dark tales of the human psyche. --Freddie Young" I love the art, with great layouts, nice thick lines, and coloring that's somehow both rich and muted. ... And the elliptical structure was a smart choice because it adds at least a little bit of mystery; instead of just reading to see what happens next you keep going to better understand what's already happened. --Garrett Martin" This hardcover features a series of short stories which at first seem completely unrelated but eventually begin to tie together to reveal a larger picture of depravity, lust, drug abuse and other sinister events taking place in a town that is utterly surreal and terrifyingly familiar.--Chad Derdowski [A] darkly compelling, twisted, beautifully illustrated account of the broken souls and self-absorbed nihilism... It's a stunning piece of fiction, beautifully crafted in its prose, pacing, artistry and crushing understanding of humanity's ugliness.--Michael C. Lorah [G]ives us a glimpse of internal mayhem inside a controlled environment, executed with elegance and a touch of mystery. ... This is a weird tale that's easy to get drawn into.--Irina Ivanova King of the Flies is a very surreal and unsettling tale. Prius does a wonderful job creating a horror-driven universe that could really happen in real life... [I]t's definitely worth picking up if you enjoy dark tales of the human psyche. --Freddie Young
