Thanks to BOOM Studios! for the review copy!
A new 4 issue horror fantasy mini-series from the writer of 2021’s Home Sick Pilots and the upcoming Loki series from Marvel. When a retired and widowed photographer starts looking for a reason to live he sets his focus on capturing the ever changing seasons, represented in this series as four powerful and majestic gods. In doing so, he begins to find the spark that drove him to his love of photography and the many other simple pleasures he had been missing for so long.
This was a fantastic read! It’s emotional, dramatic, sad, and even a little introspective. How do you continue to enjoy the world when all that you loved is gone? How do you move forward when you feel so empty? These are the questions Dan Watters asks in this comic. It doesn’t feel like a horror series at this juncture but it is a sad and dark look at man’s biggest fears and regrets. It’s beautifully written and almost feels poetic in its delivery. The art adds a whole additional layer to the scope and magnitude of this story. The pencils and coloring from Cabrol and Jackson are just fantastic. What starts out as merely monotone and lifeless slowly springs to a colorful palate of life by the end of the issue. Clearly intentional and perfectly executed. It’s vibrant and detailed but also subtle and reflective. When our main character finally ventures out only to realize what he’s been hiding from the whole time, may actually set him free, it’s a truly redemptive feeling. They really managed to tug on all the heart strings with this first issue so I’m very curious to see where the next season takes us, presumably in the next issue. Nonetheless, Spring is full of life and vigor! Be sure to check this one out! I highly recommend it!
My rating – 10/10 Superb!
