      I have to tell you that being an avid reader has made these blogs possible, but it's the folks writing these books that make all of this possible. I've been posting reviews on this blog for awhile now and I've been given some really good shit to review. When Matthew reached out to me asking if I'd be interested in reviewing his latest book all I had to do was see the cover and I said yes. How could not say no to a book with a title like this? I've been wanting to read his stuff for awhile now, but I just haven't had the time. Now that I had a copy of this I had to dive in and read it. It's a Morbidbooks release which means that all the normal rules of fiction no longer apply. I love Morbid and I'm pretty sure I said that even before they published me. Back to the Black Skull Of Death and where I should start out this review.

     There are no words that I could say that will ease you into the experience of reading the book for yourself. I can't tell you how fucked up this book is. My words don't do it justice. It's pure insanity that revolves around an energy drink. It's a bit about addiction and the dangers of consuming too many of these things and there's a reason for that. An accident happens and it effects the energy drink called Mother Fucking Black Skull Of Death, When you drink the infected batch you turn into to a monster. These are hideous beasts that mimic the personality of whoever drinks it. There's also insane amounts of sex, and violence, but for some reason the way that Vaughn describes most of it, I laughed way too loud and probably too long.

      Black Skull is a mix of splatterpunk, bizarro, and black humor but it all seems to work really well together. As a writer he knows how to make you laugh and cringe at the same time. This is a book that will more than likely offend you, but if you have a book with a title like this what else would you expect? At times the humor does run a bit juvenile, but I still laughed my ass off. This is a book that pushes the envelope a bit and then just goes batshit crazy. I assure you that it's a good thing. If you like books that are sick and twisted, but also laugh out loud funny this is a winner. I can't thank Matthew enough for giving me a copy, and I have a feeling that there could be a sequel coming up. At least I hope so anyway.
