The homicidal triad, pyromania, animal abuse and bed wetting! Kinda sets the tone for this comic!

Issue 1 starts with a young boy lighting a fire just to see it burn before returning home to find a stranger in his house under less than pleasing circumstances. It’s clear that this kid is a sociopath but that’s exactly what this stranger is looking for! He takes the boy to a special school and promises him a bright future but at what cost! After a rather fitting selection process the boy, now called Abel, is now part of ‘Black Forest’

This was all in the past and the ‘higher ups’ made a pretty big effort to cover their existence up but now in present day, they are back and what a way to announce ur arrival! Nothing says honey I’m home than a mass murder and you may as well go the whole hog and kill them in such a spectacular way that they know who it is and what they are capable of.

Such a fantastic comic and a brilliant first issue! The premise is awesome and I can’t wait to see how this group of trained sociopaths strike next

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
