'Private Beach' by David Jerome Hahn sees a reprint and a final eighth chapter to answer all the questions. Or does it?

The original seven issues of this comic were published between 2001 and 2002. The story follows Trudy Honeyvan and her group of friends. While the story starts out feeling mundane, the story begins to take weird turns. Trudy keeps finding an odd message in a magic eightball. Trudy gets a job as a sort of concierge in a bizarre nightclub. The job seems harmless, but is it?

I really appreciate Dover republishing works like this. I also appreciate the final chapter being finished and included. There is a foreword by Jeff Parker and an introduction by the writer/artist. There are also some strange short chapters included at the end called Beach Shorts. After finishing it, I'm still not entirely sure what I read or what happened, but like a good David Lynch movie, I'm okay with the journey, and not so much the destination. This is definitely an odd comic, but I really liked it.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
