"It’s like Promethea meets Little Lulu, and quite beguiling." -- Chris Allen, Breakdowns
"I don't think any explanation could do it justice, but how about: What if Seth and Alan Moore decided to do a ghost story with a George Herriman feel to it?" -- Dave Sim, Cerebus
Shuck is a demon who used to be in the business of guarding souls. Wearing an old man mask to hide his goat-faced nature and to fit into his new retired lifestyle, Shuck lives in a house next door to little Thursday Friday, her mom and her talking cat Jamara. The mask doesn't help him hide and Shuck is drawn into the netherworld he thought he had left behind. Adventure ensues. This 168-page trade paperback collects the first four stories (plus covers) of the Ignatz-nominated Shuck Comics and includes 48 pages of new material.
