    Transitional issues don’t have to be boring installments full of talk talk talk. When they are done well – and they are done very well here – they help to move the story forward while also giving readers some much needed action.

    With each installment, Tenement becomes progressively more haunting and suspenseful. If you are in search of a skillfully-paced horror, look no further. Lemire does what he does best weaving suspense into what feels like an everyday setting, while Sorrentino’s art masterfully compliments the story, leaving enough room for your imagination to create new fresh horrors. Tenement #3 is chilling and suspenseful and exactly what every horror fan needs

    The Story: Lemire ramps up the tension and terror in this issue. The story has some great character development and the rise in tension throughout is exceptional. I continue to love the dark tone and suspense within the series and this issue specifically. The story does a fantastic job of isolating a core group of characters and raising the emotional stakes for them. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next issue.

    The Art: Sorrentino delivers some fantastic art throughout the issue. The story is brilliantly dark in its tone and the art brilliantly connects to that darkness and brings it to life.

    The slow start that Tenement had in its first issues marginally pays off in issue #3 as Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s story really goes to some wild places. A disconnect remains however in finding joy in reading some of the characters however, whose personalities sometimes make them ripe for a descent into hell like they’ve found themselves in. Naturally, Sorrentino’s unique panel layouts are the real winner here, but the plutonic imagery can only carry it so far when half the characters aren’t even fun to read.
