This was actually a new concept to me, “military horror“, and one I was kind of confused by as far as I’m confused war is hell so military horror almost seems redundant but I figured it’s Moreci so I’ll give it a shot. This is some graphic stuff…

But then it falls right back into that tightly scripted deep plot that Moreci is known for. Couple the script, which keeps you reading, with Colin Lorimer’s detailed art and muted palate and the perfect pacing between plot and shocking visceral scenes of horror and you’ve got a book that’s as mesmerizing as it is disturbing.

I’m giving Burning Fields #1 a 4.5 out of 5.
