Rachel Rising has been somewhat quiet the last few months, the various murderous machinations kept in check by the book's ongoing mysteries. Issue #32 shakes that notion in a big way, creator Terry Moore delivering an eerie and affecting installment that teases even bigger things yet to come. Read Full Review
The talk about good vs evil is the main reason that this book is interesting and does take some of the sting of just people talking around a table. However, it serves no purpose to the main storyline and does not move it forward which has been a main complaint with the book. The end of Rachel Rising #32, however does give hope that more is still to come. Read Full Review
This series continues to impress. After the lightheartedness at the end of the first arc and easing into Rachel's status quo of taking "naps" (dying and reawakening after longer and longer stretches of time) things take a serious turn. This issue takes a serious turn by focusing instead on the introspective nature of death and inevitable fate. Just as the story could not get any more languishing in the morose nature of the end, Moore allows Zoe to drop a small smirk worthy comment. Then Rachel accepts her gifts to solve the puzzle laid out in the first half of the issue.
While this issue could be seen as self incapsulating story, it technically touches on plot points from the previous issue. It also acts as a larger staging for what is to come in the future of the series. Beautiful and haunting, this whole series is massively impressive considering Moore takes on all tasks on drawing, writing, inking and lettering.
