This article is spoiler free, therefore, I can’t divulge into any of the details of the core story. However this is a brilliant story every page feels like a horror movie unfolding. We the reader gets to experience the pandemic as the town of Willow does. The town and the people deal with this pandemic in various ways. We also see how the town’s people will react when the pandemic hits one of their own. Mattias Bergara’s art and B. Buccellato’s colors brings to life the world of Willow Florida. The Artwork is brilliant and adds to the mystic of the book.
At the end, all I can really say is that this is a great launch to the series and will be adding this title to my pull list. I fear for the town of Willow but can’t wait to read/see what this pandemic does to the townspeople of Willow Florida.
