What you have are weird and bizarre tales of death, mixed with plenty of wry humour. The art is a mix bag of styles, some pieces are simple, others more detailed. South African creators Arno Hurter and David Edwards feature heavily, contributing five stories. Tales like ‘…cold’ and ‘Saying Grace’ are quite funny and the duo excel within the tight constraints of one page. Edward’s art is boisterous and humorous, and fits in well with the tone of the book.
‘One and Done’ is a unique experience and while macabre and profane at times it is a fun read. You can purchase the novel at www.mirasmartshop.com or go to www.investcomics.com for more information. Checkout our interview with David Edwards
