The saying “If it’s too good to be true, it is,” applies perfectly to It Eats What Feeds It #1. The first chapter of Aaron Crow and Max Hoven’s story introduces Kenny, a young man who’s stumbled on an atypical opportunity, to say the least.
First off, he found this job in the Classified section of the newspaper. I’m not sure what’s weirder: the fact Kenny checks the Classifieds or that someone actually put a job listing there.
What’s stranger is the setting. It’s powerful. The plot itself is eerie, but Crow and Hoven choosing Louisiana makes It Eats What Feeds It #1’s vibe even creepier. There’s something unsettling about the deep, deep south. And the fog was a particularly nice touch. Sure, the Spanish moss dangling from the trees is ominous, but the fog makes It Eats What Feeds It #1 feel more nightmarish.
And that may be was Gabriel Iumazark does best with this story: maintain an ominous tone from start to finish. Because even in the instances where it seems like Kenny has something good going, it feels too good to be true. With every action that takes place, it feels like It Eats What Feeds It #1 could take a wrong turn.
For those looking to give a new title a try, this new three-issue miniseries might just be what you’re looking for. In addition to spooky mood, It Eats What Feeds It is a quick and easy read. Crow and Hoven still establish the story’s two important characters well — Francois being the other one — but no time is wasted. Furthermore, Iumazark’s depiction of the characters gives you great insight into who they are and what drives them.
