Curse #1 Review

Hunting a killer isn't the hard part, it's figuring out what to do when you find him that's tricky.

The Good

The art on this book fits the tone of the story quite nicely. As a horror book you don't expect it to look seek and streamline, you want a somber and dark tone and this book's art delivers just that. The typical "how far would you go for a love one" story gets a nice tweak as our hero Laney is fighting for his son's life without the revenge angle.

The Not So Good

The story feels a bit rushed, and it probably is due to the fact that this is only a 4 issue mini series and not a full fledged ongoing one. That said, I would have liked to see the confrontation between Laney and the killer left as the hook to get you to by the next issue instead of being the hook of this issue.

The Bottom Line

This comic may not be the typical type of story you think of when you here the words comic book, but it should be. It has strong characters, a focused story, and makes you actually care about the hero of the book and genuinely worry if he will make it out of the book alive. This may not be from one of the bigger comic companies, but it delivers a lot more than some of their recent books. I highly recommend you pick this book up, just be sure to read it with the lights on...
