And Then Emily Was Gone - Psychological Trauma, Illustrated ~ What'cha Reading?

And Then Emily Was Gone – Psychological Trauma, Illustrated


I’ve been reading ComixTribe’s And Then Emily Was Gone for a couple of months now, and thought they’d brought me to the edge with previous issues. NOPE. Issue #4  – which comes with its own disclaimer – is a brutal trip through hell. There’s psychological breaks with every page, and it’s the greatest compliment I can give when I caution readers to rethink meals before reading this book.

Iain Laurie’s art is beyond description. It’s like his id just went wild on Bristol board; we’re treated to whatever horrors his imagination can crank out for us in this issue. Thankfully, writer John Lees creates an intense, savage story that digs into our minds and allows Laurie’s art to permeate.

I can’t give too much info here, because spoilers abound, but suffice to say that Greg is not having any easier a time of it this issue, and Gordon really should leave some doors unopened.

If you want supernatural, psychological terror that crawls over you and gnaws at you until you feel like you’re going to snap, this is your book. And Then Emily Was Gone #4 hits shelves this Wednesday. Reserve your copy, and pick up the first three at Comixology, if you haven’t read them yet.

She loves superheroes, supervillains, and is secretly married to Hellboy. Or Loki. She can’t remember, but it’s one of them.
