The Rundown: A desperate diner owner will discover that getting what you want might not be all its cracked up to be.
Jean runs a diner in a small town and things are not going well after a popular chain restaurant opens up across the street. When her one and only customer leaves her a tip before heading out, Jean discovers that one of the coins is very odd looking. After being told to keep it by her waitress, Jean decides to make a wish on the coin. A wish that will change her life.
After wishing for customers to show up hungry, the next morning that exact thing happens. She and her staff get to work cooking for a diner full of hungry customers. Unfortunately, they seem to be really hungry and things take a really dark turn when the diner starts to run out of food.
The Story: I continue to love this series and this issue is no exception. I love classic horror comics and this has the same tone and feel as many of them but with a unique twist that keeps me engaged with every page and panel. I love the way the Silver Coin is being used in this story and how dark the implications of it are. The story has some great horror and humor throughout and I love how the story progressed to its exciting conclusion.
The Art: Walsh delivers some fantastic art on every page of this story. The visuals are stunning, brilliantly detailed and dynamic.
