Mike life has gone to hell since his mom died and his dad disappeared.
Check that: his life was pretty messed up since he began living in a world where the dead walk around and take bites out of the living — his mom having joined that club just makes things worse.
But Mike is a good son and while he does keep his mother tied to a chair in her room so she won’t eat him or his brother, he will go out and find food (yeah, people) for her to munch on.
This story of life in a world gone mad gets even more horrifying when Mike’s latest food run leads him to another group of survivors — and a familiar face.
Nobody does horror any better than writer Steve Niles (30 Days Of Night) and along with artist Andrew Ritchie (Cthulhu Tales) they’ve plumbed some spectacularly gory new depths with Pieces For Mom.
