Publisher’s Summary: Champagne! Bloodshed! Uncomfortable silences! In the clutches of the unstoppable assassin they call the Eartheater, Izzy must break free to rescue those she once cared for from the hands of the murderous poet Paulie. But once they learn of her past sins, will they want her to save them?
Paulie continues to make mischief and spread his poisonous influence while Izzy faces down the EarthEater. And, if there wasn’t enough tension–if the stakes weren’t already high enough–writer Dan Watters makes it clear that there is still a lot more to learn about our protagonist before we continue supporting her decisions.
Coffin Bound is home to many complex characters that, rightfully, could command their own series; collecting them here, in one place, makes for an authentic reading experience that never ceases to amaze. Watters has spent a great deal of time developing these characters in interesting ways, and the more that I learn about them, the more invested I become.
Whether it’s a set of prophet’s eyes rolling around in a glass jar, or a limbless torso floating in a room of water, Dani’s attention to detail is uncanny. Scene after scene, readers are presented with a slew of surreal images and landscapes that are both beautiful and haunting, and yet again, another issue of Coffin Bound ends with a sublime final scene that generates a great deal of excitement for what’s to come.
Strange, surreal, and evocative, Coffin Bound is a creative force to be reckoned with; three issues in and the series continues to surprise and impress.
