The Rundown: A personal tragedy will unlock a new and scary world for a young woman.
It’s another Wednesday night service and the church is no where near as full as it usually is. The reverend tries to lead his flock, but he has problems closer to him including a son that refuses to speak to anyone and a daughter who is just waiting to get out of town.
When the family decides to drive home with the daughter Harmony behind the wheel, their interpersonal conflicts boil over and an accident sends them careening into a tree. An accident caused by Harmony being able to see ghosts. Ghosts who have stories they need her to listen to.
The Story: Bunn is a master at creating dark, haunting and engaging stories and this first issue is no different. It does a brilliant job of showcasing the characters and their conflicts before completely upending everything you expected to happen and creating a compelling and interesting narrative for its characters. I was immediately hooked from the first few pages and am excited to see what happens next.
The Art: Leomacs delivers some beautiful and brilliantly haunting imagery throughout the issue. The visuals are scary and somber while also showcasing emotion and tension.
