"Lorna," is Cute, Hilarious, and Immensely Distrubing
"Lorna," follows the titular character throughout her days as an adult and includes a flashback to her high-school years that explains how she was able to make at least one friend back in the day (Norma) whom she has managed to keep despite having a tendency to threaten people with death via knives (or being an accessory to murder at times and burying a body with other chums). Lorna could easily just be a one-dimensional figure, all bluster and anger, but she isn't. Yes, when she makes a resume in an effort to find work it simply says to hire her or she'll kill you, but she does in fact have complexities.
I loved, "Lorna," and am pleased that in the book Benji Nate says she has plans to revisit the character for future stories. Lorna may not be someone you'd want to encounter in everyday life (if for no reason other than your own personal safety) but she makes for a stellar individual to read about. I rate this comic/original graphic novel an enthusiastic 5 out of 5 stars. You can find yourself a copy via Silver Sprocket's online store, ask your local comic shop to buy it via Diamond order code FEB191963, or inquire at any finer bookstores if they could get you a copy via its ISBN, 978-1-945509-34-6. I loved, "Lorna," even if I was terrified of Lorna herself, so I'd for sure recommend getting yourself this book should you like cute illustrations, cats, and murderously dark humor!
