My Thoughts: Bravo! Bravo! This was really good. The concept is dark and intriguing, it just begs to be read. It has a lot of mystery, a true creep factor, and some dark humor sprinkled in. This is perfect Halloween reading.
I thought the art really fit the story. It had it's own sort of style. All the panels were clear and easy to read. The colors used were dark and added to the atmosphere.
This also had some decent scares. If it had been a movie, I would have been hiding behind my hands.
I can't wait to read more, see where it goes next. A great first Volume to a mysterious series. Definitely check this one out!
