IDW Comics releases a horror side of the comic which contains with magic and occult in Diablo House on its fourth issue.

Now, by looking at the front cover of this comic issue it’s kind of disturbing where a magician pops out a scary rabbit out of the blacktop cat. Then again, it’s a horror comic and its not for kids, and basically, it’s much random as it gets by seeing a shirtless magician doing some wicked magic tricks, much like watching the Halloween movie of Hocus Pocus.

So anyway, the story of this comic has nothing much to say, it’s some creepy Lil. Satan magician wannabe knew as Sr. Diablo who had been broadcasting a Mexican magic show for the audience, especially children to see his horrific magic tricks by using some sort of black magic. I mean I couldn’t imagine other stereotypes from other comics like that. But somehow what I know that this is more devilish of a comic that I’ve ever seen. But I just wonder how does the story continue like this?

I wish I knew what the story is about because it almost reminded me of watching the old Goosebumps in the 90s. Anyway, this comic has more sense of horror, the story is quite different because some parts were taken in the Greek Mythology or something, or you might rather sell your soul to read this comic. The art though, the artist Santi Perez had illustrated more than just any characters and details, but what he draws it’s much more like illustrating what is life like in Friday the 13th or El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) of a Mexican holiday. The other thing that he illustrates is some of the characters from the mythology, like Satan, Dracula, etc. and another type of scary stuff. I’m not really surprised, I mean this is actually a fiction story. If you rather sell your soul from something, then this comic book is just for you.
