Summary: New town, new hope? Moving to a new place after tragedy should signify a new beginning, but not if you move to a crazy, creepy town. The dark invades. Things are not as they should be. This family must now fight a new horror.
My Thoughts: As far as Halloween reading goes, put this one on your list. It is super dark and creepy. I also like that it's not the kind of "witches" that you would first think of. The monsters in this book are scary. The way they live and survive is scary. What they do to people is scary. I won't look at the woods the same way again, or at least suspicious looking, old trees.
The whole atmosphere of the comic was dark and creepy, and that meant that a majority of the panels were very dark too. At times, that made for kind of confusing reading. There were times that the panels were so dark, I couldn't exactly make out everything that was happening. There was also a lot going on in each panel, which made it hard to keep up. I liked the ambience it added to the comic, but it didn't exactly make for the easiest of reading experiences.
This comic is perfect for Halloween reading. It has the right amount of horror, gore, and hopelessness. I'm interested to see where the next chapter takes off.
Dark and Creepy!
