What is this issue about?
Both the cops and the crooks are closing in on Madison and Duncan. Seems like a good time to go clothes shopping, rob some drug dealers, hit the fairground for some cotton candy, and maybe make out. Oh, and someone gets shot in this issue.
What is WE CAN NEVER GO HOME though?
WE CAN NEVER GO HOME is a love letter to types of story almost no one seems to tell anymore- Crime Road movies like Badlands and True Romance, outcast against the world tales like Pump Up The Volume and Heathers, and character driven adventure comics like Love & Rockets and Stray Bullets.
Artist Joshua Hood’s (JLA: Scary Monsters, Venom) delicate and expressive line work brings the world to life and produces characters who feel human. Amanda Scurti’s colors lend a surreal feel to the world. Series writers Matthew Rosenberg (Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars: Journal & SHIELD: Quake, Co-Writer Ghostface Killah’s 36 Seasons LP) & Patrick Kindlon (Webcomic Menu) instill a genuine sense of the loneliness of growing up and feeling like an outcast. And Michael Walsh (Secret Avengers, Comeback) covers are just fucking awesome. The end result is a coming of age tale unlike any on shelves today.
