    Mike Hawthorne has a nice, elegant style that managed to impress me with how effectively it conveys the details of the story, as it does a wonderful job of capturing the horror of the scene a family falls victim to the curse. There's also a wonderful looking sequence where we see him deliver a flashback scene where an elderly native woman moves through a snowy wilderness, and the art manages to perfectly convey a sense of isolation. The flashback scene where we see the event that embittered our hero against the world was also powerful bit of art, with the scene where the woman is killed being a very solid display of how to convey the sheer horror of the attack without getting overly graphic.
