If you’re at your local shop or perusing your favorite online comic storefront, then you should check out The Devil’s Cut from DSTLRY. The anthology brings together some of the freshest writers and artists in today’s modern talent pools, all with an insane amount of multi-disciplinaries. For those who may not know what an anthology is, it’s an amalgamation of
stories from various genres.

Anthologies can either contain the same story concepts told from unique perspectives, tell different stories in the same universe or genre, or just combine great stories to showcase break-out talents that demonstrate great writing, exquisite art, stylistic lettering, and provide excellent examples of how an editor impacts a comic or graphic novel.

These stories below are just some of my favorites, but there are other stories including What’s Mine Is Hearse, A Blessed Day, The Stowaway, The Deleted Scene, #2, Whiteboat, What Happens Next…, Waiting To Die, What Blighted Flame Burns In Thee?.


Do you believe in ghost stories? Ghost stories are some of the oldest stories known in history and have been a boon to the entertainment industry for decades, especially comics. James Tynion IV goes a step further with the evocative tale of a greedy master thief who finds more than a millionaire’s bargain.

What if you could make ghosts of the living? What if you could walk up to the barrier of heaven and witness its existence without dying? Needless to say, the art that depicts this spectrograph in action did a beautiful job of separating the spirit from the body, sending this thief into a supernatural experience soon to be forgotten.

I love the mafia-style opening, set in the 80s, the golden age of opportunity, but these opportunities are usually just that, and those traveling to those opportunities become paydays and are usually pawns for the super-rich to stay richer without much of a mess. We’ll never know how messy it really got, but let’s just say this story hammers an exciting nail into a fabulous intro to the DSTLRY’s anthology series. It’s going to leave you wanting a follow-up.


No, not Commander Shepherd from Mass Effect, even though I think Mark Bernardin wouldn’t mind that assignment should anyone decide that would make a great television series.

Until they do something with this strike, I guess we’ll settle for this awesome short comic sci-fi story Mark brought us. Pitch meetings are the scariest obstacle in a writer’s career. So if you have a good friend, maybe a shelf full of your favorite Funko Pops, or, in this case, a lovely wife to listen to, then make sure you give your presentation a good run-through. Aside from the finer points of presentation, Mark’s story highlights the fun yet concerning future we must face if we’re to be coherent, space-fearing people.

Mark strikes a thought-provoking pose as he presents to his wife a solution to keeping our futures on ice intact. Despite the AI conflict that has split the world into several options thanks to our own imagination of what robots could potentially do to the human race, he manages to present his own version of an android designed to restore whatever hell were to break loose on these long voyages through the cold dark of space. I expected nothing less from this talented team of creators.

If you’re a fan of the fourth wall being torn down like the Berlin Wall, then meet the fun and witty Elsa Charritier. We’ll never know her name, but she’s the bond de la femme the world needs when terrorists walk the line. The art was very simple yet unique. If Barbie was a 1980s Rambo flick set in Mexico or the Caribbean, I’d be in the front row. The dialogue was the most profound part of this story, making the images feel like a bonus.

The lettering, from an editor’s perspective, was pretty unique and really complimented the story with how it would connect and exist on and off the gutters. This story definitely gives a whole new meaning to the word kabob! These are just some of the many stories you’ll find in this treasure trove of a page-turner. Let’s just say there is something here for everyone!
