THE BEEF —
NOW IN A MEATY TRADE PAPERBACK!
The critically acclaimed series by Richard Starkings (ELEPHANTMEN), Tyler Shainline (Liberty Justice), Shaky Kane (BULLETPROOF COFFIN: THE 1,000 YARD STARE, The A-Men), and John Roshell titled, THE BEEF will be collected into trade paperback and available this July from Image Comics.
THE BEEF brings readers the story of Meat Men. Chuck is a mild-mannered meat factory worker who is a little in love with a strawberry picker named Mary Lynn. But everything changes when Mary Lynn falls victim to the Vodino Brothers…
Select praise for THE BEEF:
“A fantastically-weird comic that is equal parts Silver Age fun and indie comics attitude and execution.”
—Monkeys Fighting Robots
“A modern day Hulk for the food conscious.”
“Kane’s deliberately flat, grotesque style makes the book a queasy thing even before you get into the vivid gore and violence.
This social satire is really just getting started, and if their past work is any indication, Shainline and Kane will make it worth the trip.”
“A book that has been purposefully designed to crawl under the skin of anyone who reads it.”
—The Comics Journal
