Daisy #1 features a world of giants and angels. The giants in this book aren’t “Attack on Titan” sized, but still tower over average-sized humans in the creepiest way, and those giants have secrets, primarily the title character Daisy.

If you’re interested in this comic, series, related trades, or any of the others mentioned, simply click the title/link to snag a copy through Amazon.


Writer Colin Lorimer sets up the mythology of this book through quasi-religious verses and ominous flashbacks to ancient times.  At times, there’s a “Twin Peaks” flavor at work here, with the bizarre and unearthly underscoring everything, even during a simple conversation between the town’s sheriff and a mother looking for her missing son.  There are conspiracies here that will play out in future issues. Daisy, the sheriff, the mother looking for her son, and a man simply named “Father” are the main characters of the book, with the sheriff’s talkative personality a great counterpoint to the quiet mystery of Daisy and “Father”.  
This is definitely a horror comic and after reading this issue, it’s hard to tell what direction it will be going in.


Colin Lorimer also did the art for Daisy #1, and he fills the panels with details that add another layer to the story.  Reading through the issue a second time, I noticed religious imagery popping up in the background almost subliminally at times, reflecting the book’s dark themes.

Daisy first appears in a striking splash page, where Colin perfectly shows the height difference between her and the other characters.  It’s a POV shot that makes the reader feel like they’re standing in front of her, looking up as she looms over them. There’s a pain in her features that’s palpable.

The art reminded me of the great artist Barry Windsor-Smith, primarily due to how beautifully Colin’s detailed art renders the twisted and bizarre characters and architecture that fill the book’s pages.


Daisy #1 sets up several mysteries that hopefully will be resolved over the next 4 issues.  A dark fantasy world is presented where we only get the barest information for each character, and the ending of the issue pays off what’s introduced in the first few pages.  This is slow-burn horror and if you love that particular brand of horror, check this book out.
