About the Author

EZRA CLAYTAN DANIELS is the author of Upgrade Soul and winner of the 2017 Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics. He lives in Los Angeles, CA.
If MΓ…"bius were an anarcho nihilist, focusing his surreal lense towards race and regret, sex and society, anxiety and Aquaman references, you'd get Ben Passmore. A black comics artist from New Orleans, Passmore's work is rooted in his experiences and observations from punk rock and direct-action activism. The apocalyptic wasteland of post-Katrina New Orleans comes to life in fantastic sci-fi wrapping complex ideas in sex jokes and exploding uncomfortable truths through sophisticated analogy.


Daniels and Passmore bring their satirical acumen and sense of the macabre aspects of society to their first collaboration. The medium is the monster and the mastery of its use are utterly apparent in this powerful sequential manifesto.--John Jennings
I fell in love with this comic right about page one, and then just kept falling. The story is smart, the characters feel lively and real, and the art is moody and lovely. One hell of a winning recipe. Gentrification horror at its finest.--Victor LaValle
Passmore and Claytan Daniels teaming up is a dream combination.
The brightly hued, visually compelling panels provide an electrifying feel to each page.
A coy, gruesome satire of gentrification.
Passmore composes some very striking images, and a high-intensity color palette adds an extra pop to the linework.
Daniels and Passmore make horror feel vital again.
Gentrification horror and sociopolitical satire play out with sharpness in this visually brilliant thriller set in a fictional Chicago South Side community.
A savage Afrofuturistic horror comedy about gentrification, racial invisibility, and cultural appropriation in knock-your-eyes-out, 'non-literal' coloring.
Daniels and Passmore have created a funny, creepy, acid-toned satire about the horrors of gentrification.
BTTM FDRS is a brilliant meteor of a graphic novel, and I'm pretty sure when it comes into your life, you won't know what hit you. Vibrantly drawn and perfectly paced, this comic is as compelling to read as the story is necessary to hear. Simultaneously delivering visceral horror, cutting satire, and a nuanced interrogation of urban gentrification.--Edie Fake
BTTM FDRS is a savvy, albeit grisly, comic urban monster story for the social media generation.
BTTM FDRS is a horror comic, an amplification of new voices, a meditation on trends in urbanization, a Goonies-type adventure, a look at female and cross-racial friendship, a beautiful visual examination of lumpiness and more, all moderated by a skeptical sense of humor.
BTTM FDRS drags up our culture's biggest, ugliest globs of unconscious sewage and spreads it across a white page for us to see and acknowledge.
