A new graphic novel arrives on November 12th from Z2 Comics, The Abaddon, written and illustrated by Koren Shadmi. Set in an apartment building and described as an "existential mystery" loosely based on No Exit by Sartre, we are promised plenty of interpersonal conflict, tension, and angst in this new work.
A young man finds himself trapped in a bizarre apartment with a group of ill matched roommates. He quickly discovers that his new home doesn't adhere to any rational laws of nature, and poses a strange enigma, a puzzle he must solve to escape. It's no help that both him and his roommates are missing crucial parts of their memories and identities; he must try and gather the missing pieces as he struggles to find a way out. This existential mystery, loosely based on Jean Paul Sartre's play "No Exit", lures you, the reader, into a horror house of lust, angst, and madness; As you venture deeper and deeper into the darkest recess of The Abaddon, you will begin to wonder if you'll ever see the light of day again.
