You’ve seen the covers…
We’ve shown you a few pages too, and now there’s another to add to the run…
Ok so there really isn’t much new info here. But I don’t think we need to worry, the characters are legendary, the show totally rocks, and the art we’ve seen so far is beautiful. With that in mind I dove into the review copy we were sent. I haven’t watched Penny Dreadful since season 1, not for lack of wanting or trying to, so I was worried I’d be lost. I needn’t have worried Krysty Wilson-Cairns gives us a tight, fast-paced, gory, frightening story. Bringing The Master, Sir Malcom Murray, and a great surprising character together made this first issue a great book. Fan of the series? Buy it. Want a good horror/adventure book? Buy it.
I will be picking this one up. Will you?
Penny Dreadful gets 5 out of 5 stars. Great first issue!
