Abel continues on his journey of discovery and is hot on the trail of Mystic Magdalena

I know I’ve said this time and time again but it’s worth repeating, the artwork in this comic is outstanding I mean seriously the Hurst Family Carnival is equal parts merriment mixed with downright creepiness, its perfect. The steampunk-esque feel matches the feel of the story brilliantly and the bright vivid colours enhance the almost sinister essence of the carnival. Abel is obviously in a desperate situation and therefore resorts to desperate measures to get by, measures like the oopsy doopsy which gets him into a world of trouble, but never fear his faithful sidekick is always by his side. Well almost always.

Bobby and Wrench seem like pretty cool characters and I hope they get explored more in coming issues as they make an interesting pair and have the vibe of having more to them than meets the eye, but that all depends on the next issue as by the looks of their current situation it doesn’t bode well for them! I can’t wait to see the outcome of this quandary Abel has found himself in!!

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
