From BOOM Comics, comes the bone-chilling “Bone Parish” issue 3.

It’s all about the addictive quality of a substance derived from human bodies. One family has the secret and a lock on the black market for the powder. But the entire underworld wants in. Negotiations are going on, with increased pressure on the Winters family to sell!

Cullen Bunn writes a powerful story here, and Jonas Scharf (with Alex Guimaraes on colors) draws cleanly but with feeling. It’s strongly rendered work; realistic, moody and persuasive lines. Coloring is effective, too. Never too much, with just the right mood to the color palette: the New Orleans atmosphere in color. Night time cool blues.
Neon and fantasy sequences, clearly delineated.

I am enjoying this gruesome tale. The level of danger and threat is increasing with every issue. You should check out this BOOM title! Oh, please, just look at the cover!!

BOOM Comics, Bone Parish #3, #3.99 for 24 pages of content. Mature rating

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!!
