Review

“I was alone but also not. There were voices buzzing in my head. Whispers of memories that were not my own. The house had put them there. Swaddled me in shadows of half-forgotten ghosts. It had seen something in me that might help it…”

After learning a bit more about Ami and how the Home Sick Pilots formed, it’s back to business as usual. Rip and Buzz are reeling from watching the Old James House kill their punk-rock rivals and Ami, now imbued with ghostly powers, ventures out to recapture one of the house’s runaway souls.

Dan Watters’ writing is sharp and exciting, and although the book’s first ghost showdown is a bit briefer than I would like, I’m just as eager to keep reading as I was at the end of the debut issue. Again, thanks to the energy pulsing through this book’s pages, it’s incredibly difficult to put down. Further contributing to this book’s success, and the overall ‘I-can’t-put-this-down’ factor is Caspar Wijngaard’s stunning artwork. Home Sick Pilots continues to impress, visually. And, now that we’re given a glimpse of what the ghosts of the Old James House look like, I cannot wait read along as Ami tracks down the remaining escapees.

The Bottom Line

Home Sick Pilots continues to impress. Now that the stage has been successfully set, I’m eager to step further into darkness contained within the Old James House.

Fear Case #3 Review

Fear Case is a mystery with characters worth caring about. As the nightmarish tale nears the end of the arc, everything matters, and no one is safe.

Geiger #1 Review

As origin stories go, this one about a nuclear-powered superhero is clever. It manages to feel fresh and packs enough action supplemented by sentiment to make this a worthy read.

Nocterra #2 Review

An impressive second issue, Nocterra #2 further defines the world and characters of Nocterra while also making clear the danger that's nipping at our protagonists' heels. Another must-read issue.
