    The Story: Niles does a brilliant job of building tension throughout the story and having that tension lead to reveals about the character that make him more endearing. I continue to be engaged by the complicated interpersonal relationships and the mystery at the heart of the story. Niles does a great job of making sure both the mystery of Henry’s missing mother and the mystery of the family are equally compelling to the reader.

    The Art: Kudranski delivers some beautifully detailed, dark and evocative art on every page of the issue. I love the style of the art and the emotions that it evokes.

    Szymon Kudranski’s art here is atmospheric and appropriately creepy to create the “Town Called Terror” but it’s unfortunate that Steve Niles’ creation of this supernatural collective can’t live up to the art. Henry West is still trapped in his hometown though this latest issue does give us an idea of the monstrous side of our protagonist. There simply isn’t enough meat on the bone here to truly pitch this horror concept in the right way, though I’m still crossing my fingers that there will be a big enough hook to turn things around before the end.
