​A young girl tries to keep herself from killing in This Week's Comics

Do you like Dexter? Then you'll probably like Larime Taylor's A Voice in the Dark much, much more. It's the tale of a young college student named Zoey, whose desire to kill keeps getting stronger — but can hosting a radio show for people to share their darkest secrets keep her urges at bay? It's a wonderful coming-of-age story combined with an honest look at our darkest impulses (Bonus: No lumberjacks!). Check it out and more, in this week's comics!
