Very interesting adult read about media and stories and how we skew truth for the most drama. I highly recommend this.

Outcast Volumes 1 & 2
Author
Robert Kirkman
Review
Definitely not for everyone. I think even I let out a little groan when I learned the book dealt with demonic possession, but I'm very glad I kept on. The book is more about good vs. evil, perception of the two, and one man's struggle to come to terms with what he has done. I found the series to be suspenseful and intriguing.
Genre
Graphic Novel
