Review:

If you thought regular Florida was weird, wait until you see New Florida. The place has everything you could possibly want, from fire-breathing dolphins to futuristic cars. Josiah is an artist who keeps to himself in his studio, joined only by his talking cat, Bruno. When he shares a cartoon that pokes fun at Supreme President Nopples, he's hunted down by the Feelings Division, because he hurt the guy's feelings.

Yes, it's easy to see how Lunacy represents a chilling fascist version of our current administration, where free speech is regulated to such a high degree. Josiah is whisked away to an interrogation camp, which is little more than a torture chamber. Writer / artist Sidney Davidson paints a chilling view of this future that looks all too possible.

The designs within Lunacy, from the characters to the city to the various elements within it, are something else. This is a truly bizarre landscape, kind of like those weird segments that used to play during commercial breaks on MTV in the early days of the network. It's like a fever dream version of Mad Max. Davidson's art style is perfect for this, amplifying the odd pieces of this world to create a truly unnatural experience.

It's safe to say that you will not see anything else like Lunacy. It is its own animal, full of strange and disturbing imagery. This make for an unpredictable read as anything can be waiting for you on the next page. It could be a dude with chainsaws for hands or a big robot cat or both. I don't know what genre I'd classify it as since it's kind of a genre in and of itself.
