    Jaw-dropping images of simple objects – a door, a bathroom drain – bring this issue to life in a spectacular way. The complex imagery elevates the relatively straightforward story of people trapped in a mysterious world. If you’re not into the Bone Orchard Mythos, you should be.

    The Story: Lemire ramps up the suspense and terror throughout this issue. The story continues to be a compelling and thrilling ride for the reader and this issue adds more thrills and tension filled moments for every character in it. I was blown away by the progression of this story and its effect on the people trapped within this strange world. I loved the end of the issue a lot and what it possibly means for the survivors.

    The Art: Sorrentino’s art is beautifully detailed and complex. The visuals and thoroughly engaging and draw you in with every terror filled moment.

    Even as it moves unevenly apace, Tenement is deepening a larger mythology in subtle, clever ways. With every issue, The Bone Orchard Mythos continues to be an unmissable experience.

    The Bone Orchard Mythos: Tenement continues to build on its foundation with perhaps its most satisfying issue yet. Though series creatives Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino have found their footing in a major way, the fact that it is finally becoming nascent at the end of its story isn’t a great sign for the larger narrative. That said the art does look tremendous and features some of Sorrentino’s trademark unique panels and layouts, which are hard to resist. The ending is nearly here though and what can I say except I’m still interested to see where it goes, even with the warts.
