    There's no such thing as a quiet issue of Damn Them All, but the latest installment is as close as the series comes to a breather, even as it features exploded corpses and horrific visions of bodiless monsters. As new mysteries are explored, readers are given perspectives into Ellie's past in a mix of Alfie's notes and dreams. Each new character or memory seems to expand the already daunting world filled with demons and angels, providing angles on creatures from folklore along with a sense of how they function. It's impressive to see how naturally lore is embedded into the ongoing narratives; there's never a purely expository sequence, but a great deal is learned by simply tracing Ellie's path through London. All of it is brilliantly composed by artist Charlie Adlard who is delivering career-best work in these pages. Grand illusions projected upon the London skyline and hideous imagery featuring monsters and murders alike reveal an artist capable of transforming familiar concepts into entirely new visions. Reading Damn Them All #8 it's impossible to resist the urge to continue down the rabbit hole, even as Ellie advises against it, because Damn Them All is a series with enough ideas, style, and heat to run for a very long time.

    The relationship between Ellie and Cillian is obviously going to be a major plot point moving forward. Also I’m interested to see how Ellie handles the situation with Dora, and whether or not Dora’s current mental state can be cured or not. This is a supernatural detective story with no shortage of twists and turns. So if you like magic and mystery then you are going to fall in love with this series for sure.
