Review - Pigeons from Hell #2 (Dark Horse)

Issue #2 of this Robert E Howard adaptation, and things start getting really nasty

Shaping up to be a great mini-series, as things get grisly and ever so slightly like Evil Dead-ish as the malevolent spirits that surround this damned house begin to move in on the inheritors and their friends. A lawman turns up to aid the beleagured group, but you get the feeling that no-one is going to get out of this happy.

The art is a great visceral treat, and the dialogue doesn't drag the action down too much. This is a great slice of Southern Gothic. Looking forward to next time.

Review - Another unexpected treat - visceral and creepy, with a great sense of foreboding. 8 out of 10.
