It’s the night before the mysterious commemoration ceremony. Jean’s career is on the line, yet she’s out of allies and is no closer to breaking her story than she was when she started. Little does Jean know, the darkness that has been bubbling under the surface of St. Augustine is about to come to light, with or without her.

    The Story: Grayson continues to craft an entertaining and thrilling story in this issue. There is a fantastic level of suspense and tension throughout the story and every story moment and interaction builds upon itself to a fantastic cliffhanger finale and a surprise reveal that I was not only not expecting, but giddily excited to see.

    The Art: Ramsay deliver some powerful imagery throughout the issue. The art is beautifully detailed and the style perfectly captures the dream-like quality of the story and its characters.

    Dark Places: Good Deeds may be falling into a common trap, which is including one twist too many. Having wrapped up the journalist protagonist’s story arc in the previous issue, Good Deeds #5 turns its attention more fully to the town founders and the recent arrivals who seemed to trigger all of these recent events. However, the relationship and characters presented here feel unfamiliar compared to how they’ve been presented previously. The execution of this turn is done in such a muted way that it’s hard to know whether this is a big reveal or mischaracterization until the issue’s end when we’re given the answer to a question no one had asked. It’s a muddy narrative, with thematically uncertain visuals, which creates an issue that feels as if it’s trying to tell too many stories at the same time. Perhaps the series’ final issue will find a way to bring this all together into a satisfying and cohesive whole, but at this point, it’s hard to say what that would even look like and how the story would get there.
