Last Stop On The Red Line, issue 2 brings some clarity.

Another transit passenger bites the dust in Boston. Detective Torres along with her new partner, Detective Damon investigate. Oh, it’s gruesome and sobering. What kind of fiendish character is killing people on the subway? And the way the bodies are left: hard to stomach!

Paul Maybury, self-confessed Boston area man, writes this one as deep and wide as a harbour, but there is no shelter here from the storm of horror… aided and abetted by artist Sam Lotfi and colourist John Rauch, they continue the mayhem toward its conclusion with issue 4.

This miniseries has the goods. Horror, crime, supernatural or hallucinatory experiences. The dialogue and situations are fresh and arresting. The art is impulsive and eyepopping. I think you want to check out this title from Dark Horse!

Bonus material includes an author note and character sketches. Nicely done.

Dark Horse, Last Stop On The Red LIne #2, $3.99 for 32 pages of content. Rated Mature

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
