The end of the season, and the end of the road for Autumnal. It’s like a stick in the eye, some would say. And one version of the cover shows just that! Autumnal #8, from Vault Comics.

It’s that New England US setting, the family mystery, with Kat Somerville experiencing the creepy goings-on in Comfort Notch.

Daniel Kraus (The Shape of Water, Trollhunters, The Living Dead, etc) shows us the horror of Kat seeing Rob transformed, tortured, turned into something inhuman. Her own daughter, Sybil has been captured and is in peril. It’s gripping, its branches of brittle connection to sanity. We ache with Kat as she struggles against powers that seem immortal and all-powerful

Chris Shehan continues to scratch and illuminate the dangers, the revelations, the conclusion of this Nor’East tale of woe. Multicolour magic by Jason Wordie and lettered by Jim Campbell.
Vault Comics, The Autumnal #8, $3.99 for 24 pages of content. Assume Teen 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!!
