Young Liars #6 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Young Liars #6, about which I write the following sentences: "Here we have a comic in which each character has a clearly established quirk and probably one or more dark secrets. See the self-loathing anorexic, see the drug-addled transvestite, see the trust-fund thief, see the girl with the bullet in her brain, see the lover who put it there. And so on. Lapham takes the Lynchian (incest, clowns, Pinkertons) and the Tarantino-esque (non-linear narrative, pop culture arguments, axes to the skull) and throws them all together with these deeply flawed characters. It's not dull. It's not like any other Vertigo comic. But it also feels a bit hollow."
