    One gets the impression that Messina is only barely scratching the surface of what could theoretically be a very long-running series. Messina is working with such a small canvas in an issue that largely concerns itself with what appears to be the first half of a combat conflict that starts off in a comic shop. There are so many possibilities that come in a pop fusion of Lovecraft and contemporary horror action with clean lines and sharp colors. With any luck, Messina can keep it up for a while longer. This is fun stuff.

    Messina’s art continues to be the star of the show in this comic focusing on a comic book store worker, a giant tiger man, and slews of Lovecraftian nightmares populating the panels. This issue tends to pull back on some of the more eye-popping creatures that allowed Messina to stretch his artistic legs, but it had plenty of surprises and was bloody fun when all was said and done. The series remains a fun romp that smashes together more than a few interesting concepts, though it could have used just a tad more meat on the bone to really make it great.
