Inhaltsangabe: Seventeen-year-old Trevor Loomis's high school is literally Hell. In an unfortunate theological snafu, Trevor dies and finds himself in the afterlife at Satan's Prep, a Dante-inspired private school for lost souls. From science class (where he's the experiment) to gym class (involving deadly games of dodgeball), Trevor just wants to pass the semester with a 61 percent humanity level and transfer to Purgatory. When the beautiful Persephone Plumm shows up, Trevor begins to see a glimmer of hope. But is Persephone really what she seems? And will Trevor ever be able to transfer out of school? Or is he stuck for all eternity? Gabe Guarente's Satan's Prep is a clever, engrossing graphic novel for young adults about the classic struggle through adolescence seen in a new way--high school as Hell! Trevor and his band of misfit classmates are relatable and funny, and this book is sure to impress both devoted graphic novel fans and teens new to the genre.
Rezension: "Being replete with disfigured students, terrifying monsters and scenes of gruesomely explicit torture, the art is as much fun as the broadly tweaked school-story tropes... Hellishly hilarious." -Kirkus Reviews "Smart writing and distinct art play off each other perfectly in this story that transcends the gore-fest comedy genre. What's unexpected: this story has a lot of heart; it also has a lot of severed limbs, eyeballs and other internal organs." --Sean Chen, artist of Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, and The Avengers "Satan's Prep is a twisted love story that rocks like hell." --Michael Northrop, author of Trapped and Surrounded By Sharks "Brimming with dark whimsy and razor-sharp humor, Satan's Prep is a laugh-out-loud (and then weep for the horror of your teenaged years) entry into the canon of 'high school is hell' lit. Creative, contemporary, and fresh--and so much fun it's scary! Hashtag nailed it." --Micol Ostow, author of Amity
