Matt Chats: Interview with Jim Zub

“The backmatter from Holly Raychelle Hughes really matches what’s occurring in the comic. How did she become part of the team?

While doing my research on mistreatment in Hollywood I came across Holly’s essay posted on XOJane.

The article was filled with creepy interactions that felt like the kind of thing I’d been putting together for Glitterbomb. Even more chilling, it was all real. I bookmarked it and thought about the possibility of including back matter in our series, something in a similar vein – Tell-all stories ripping the veil off Tinseltown.”

From Comic Book Corps:

“Jim Zub, Djibril Morissette-Phan, K. Michael Russell, and Holly Raychelle Hughes have crafted a phenomenal arc. The story, art, and back matter are all a great combination. The essays in the back of each issue highlight how cruel and unforgiving Hollywood can be. There may not be a literal demons in Hollywood but there are some heartless and manipulative people, and that is much worst. This series is more relevant now because of all the dirt that is coming to the light today in Hollywood. I know there are a lot of stories vying for attention on the comic stands today, but do yourself a favor and read this. It is entertaining, the art is amazing, and it is also educational due to the informative back matter.”

• Adventures In Poor Taste: 8.5/10 “Unexpected twists and impressive artwork close this series on a high-note; the Glitterbomb team continues to impress.”

• Comic Book Corps: 9/10 “…do yourself a favor and read this. It is entertaining, the art is amazing, and it is also educational due to the informative back matter.”

• Horror Talk: 8/10 “…a timely, unsettling look at how we perceive fame in today’s society. It will have you thinking twice before tuning into the local news or clicking on that juicy headline.”

• Outright Geekery: 9.4/10 “If you love horror, crime, or suspense this is the book for you. This was tailor made for the mature reader and it’s such a great chance to read something out of the norm.”

• Oregon Live“Glitterbomb has been about darkness, discomfort and dissatisfaction, about how pop culture and tabloid media are a sickness. It’s a depressing book, but it’s one we need right now.”
