Ron and Russel Post are two lovable psychopaths from Bugtown, a place where death is a temporary condition. And, like almost everyone else from this surrealist city of disaster, they have the ability to shift between dimensions. In practice, this means that if one of them is pinned up against a wall one second, a second later, they may have turned into a a five hundred foot Post brother armed with a bazooka and the guts to use it.
Around since the 1970's, where their adventures appeared in
Heavy Metal magazine, the Brothers are an excuse to let creator Matt Howarth's dark imagination run wild. He often depicts his characters graphically dismembering, crushing, gutting, and ripping limb from limb anything that gets in their way, no matter how casual their actual destination may be.
But, beyond the rampant destruction, there is an intricate science fiction universe here to explore, along with some of the most interesting and unique
SF/horror concepts to appear in the past decade. It's a place where these characters can explore lack of life, loss of liberties, and pursue whatever strikes their fancy. Anything goes in the Post Brothers' world.
