A wonderfully dark Faustian tale brought into the modern day.

Its the classic tale, teenage kid stuck in a dead-end town with no prospects and no hope for escape doomed to repeat the sins of his father! Or is he? He is away to be offered exactly what he wants a way out but at what cost?

I loved this issue the way it’s drawn is fantastic you can really feel how run down and decrepit the town is and you feel for Joe as it reveals how rubbish his life is. His dads sick, the towns sick, and he wants the best for his sister but can’t see an end to their ever-mounting trouble. As they say, misery loves company and Joe receives some company he may regret and makes a deal that he most definitely will regret but it will be interesting to see if it helps out his family or not as that would be the clincher.  Pretty cool imagery used as Brimstone takes his form and some pretty cool ideas throughout, can’t wait for the next one

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
