Henry finds out that his father forced him to return to Terror because his mother has mysteriously disappeared. But becoming reacquainted with his childhood home brings back painful memories—and reawakens old rivalries.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: The story does a great job of diving into Henry as a character and giving more context to his complicated relationship with his father. I like the fact that Niles expands that story in this issue by having Henry also deal with his siblings as well. The action was handled really well with the reader getting a sense of the dangerous nature of the character. The Art: Kudranski delivers some beautiful imagery throughout the issue. There are some visually disturbing moments in the story and Kudranski is able to give those moments visual weight and presence.
ComicBook.comThe latest horror series from Steve Niles and Szymon Kudranski is able to open its world a little more in this second issue, expanding on the premise and making the world more intriguing along the way in doing so. The opening two-page spread that introduces the issue is practically worth the cost of the comic itself, as Kudranski has a very good handle on the general theme that Niles is trying to portray. While I wish the characters were a little richer here when it comes to the leading characters, the world itself makes for an interesting read and I'm interested to see where it goes moving forward in this secret town populated by monsters and ghouls.
Sequential PlanetA Town Called Terror #2 is a step backwards for the series, but there is still a glimmer of promise for this series. The pacing needs to improve and Julie deserves more attention. Otherwise, this series will be another forgetabble horror comic.
