    I have been pulling this series since it started and it has yet to disappoint! This issue just kept on building both emotions and action, making it an exciting read. It does a great job setting up the next arch which I can’t wait to get my hands on!

    The end of Dark Ride’s second arc unfolds with an emotional gut-punch, effortlessly balancing grotesque action with poignant revelations. Joshua Williamson’s script only finds ways to get even more compelling, reinventing itself without ever taking away from the core heart of the series. Andrei Bressan’s art is as spooky as ever, with Adriano Lucas’ colors going above and beyond to add to the ambiance of this issue. After this installment, I’m incredibly excited to see what’s next for the book.

    The Story: Williamson crafts a story filled with great action and horror thrills throughout. I love seeing more of the back story fleshed out as well as the reveals within the story. The story continues to create some great character moments as well as giving Sam some great character growth. I like that there are more layers to the characters and look forward to seeing where the story goes next.

    The Art: Bressan delivers some beautiful horror imagery in the issue. The visuals brilliantly capture the dark energy of the story.

    This issue comes out of left field – and not in a particularly great way. The timing of the action for this chapter is very questionable. But some chilling – and at times even poignant – illustrations help to elevate the book.
