It’s the celebrity wedding of the century, set in an undisclosed, remote location, with no access to wifi, cell phone reception or the outside world. But the dream wedding becomes a nightmare when, one by one, the guests are brutally slaughtered by a serial killer who brands his victims with a hashtag.

A searing horror story that doubles as a topical, satirical critique on society’s obsession with technology, social media and the cult of celebrity, BAD RECEPTION is written, drawn, colored and even lettered by AfterShock’s very own Juan Doe (DARK ARK, AMERICAN MONSTER, WORLD READER)!

The toast has been made and the cake has been cut.

The most intimate wedding reception of the century has started, and all the guests are suffering a bad case of nomophobia (a.k.a. “no-mobile-phone phobia”). But things get real in a hurry when the mysterious killer sets off a frenzy that drives the remaining guests into a world of unknown primal fear. Now they must learn to depend on each other if they are to survive the hunt.

The popularity contest of life is exposed when the remaining guests realize they’re being hunted down in the order of their social media ranking. The more followers you have, the bigger the target on your back. Now, the killer dubbed “Hashtag” isn’t the only predator — in order to survive, your fellow guest may turn out to be just as dangerous.
