Although a continuous webcomic we are getting the feeling this work is split into books or arcs and this one has a monumental cliff-hanger. The plot progression feels natural and you don’t get the lingering monster-of-the-week feeling. The dialogue is wonderful and each character has a definite ‘voice.’
The art is exceptional and clicks up another notch, with the colouring getting a much needed boost after last volume’s nocturnal theme. With a maximum of four panels per page, and often less, coupled with a scarcity of text this is a wonderfully visual book. There isn’t a lot of fine detail but skilful colouring and framing adds real depth to the panels. There are some expertly timed visual tricks to give you a mental kick at key moments too.
Amazingly good stuff that leaves you craving more. Thumbs Up!
