Thanks to BOOM! Studios for the review copy!
A new horror-sci-fi offering from the horror maestro himself, Cullen Bunn and esteemed artist Leomacs. A story about family and loss that transcends beliefs and faith. When a religious leader and his family become victims of a terrible accident after service he and his rebellious daughter, the only survivors, start to see and hear the voices and spirits of the deceased. Unfortunately, not all of the spirits seem peaceful and they are clear something worse is on the horizon. What transpires sends this preacher and his daughter on a journey of sacrifice and rediscovery.
Another great start for Bunn who continues to shine in the horror genre. As I’ve said before he’s truly become a master of his craft and literally anything he touches has been worth reading. He has a way of writing that lays its hooks into you immediately and leaves you gasping for air. You reach the final page anxiously writhing and shaken as you await the next issue. That’s Bunn’s M.O. these days and there is no exception here. It’s sleek, sharp and tense. The scene that unfolds with the car wreck and all that happens afterwards is one of the most chillingly worded and drawn sequences I’ve seen. It’s just super claustrophobic. The coloring, the details, the spirits lingering all around in the background. Wow! Talk about anxiety! There’s also an interesting side story that unfolds with the preacher’s son that really flips this book on its end and adds a whole new wrinkle to what we think is going on. You have to read it to believe it! This is a perfectly executed first issue by the entire team. One that I highly recommend picking up. I can’t wait to read the second issue!
My rating 10/10 Fantastic!
