The Long Con

We rated this book:


Imagine the apocalypse has come. But imagine if, instead of thinking about how society broadly would cope, we imagine how just one group, hermetically sealed off from the outside, would develop. And what if this group was everyone at ComicCon?

Personally, I’m wildly jealous I didn’t come up with the concept myself, but the creators pull it off so well that I can’t stay mad. The story is just as hilarious and tongue-in-cheek as the idea demands, from the feral enclave of Lord-of-the-Flies-esque tweens to the celebrities-turned-cannibals who lurk in the back tunnels of the convention center. Our protagonist Victor, a journalist writing for the Post Event Post from the outside post-apocalypse world, ventures inside the barricaded ruins of the vast convention center. He then becomes our guide through the various, mostly hostile groups and sub-sub-societies that have taken root there.

I loved reading The Long Con. It was fun, irreverent, and lovingly satiric in all the best ways. I honestly can’t wait for the next installments.
