    Dark Ride continues to find clever ways to build upon its status quo without ever canceling anything out, and this issue might be the best showcase of that yet. The complexities behind Halloween get to be explored in this installment of Joshua Williamson’s script, and the end result is brutal, but wildly entertaining, complete with a twist that is very effective. Andrei Bressan’s art carries the gruesome energy with just enough cartoonishness. I’m very excited to see what this arc of Dark Ride has in store.

    The Story: A dark, fun and thrilling issue from Williamson. The story continues to unfold beautifully and giving Halloween this dark journey to the truth was a great narrative choice. It gives her character more agency in the plot and stakes that will bring her into direct conflict with her brother and father. I look forward to seeing what happens next.

    The Art: Bressan delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. There are some beautifully detailed, gory visuals throughout that works brilliantly with the themes and tone of the story.

    A paper-thin plot and some questionable illustrations are a poor way to kick off a new story arc. Instead of exciting readers, this issue is more likely to turn them away.
