Hell hath no fury like a witch scorn, and the village of Manson made a serious mistake when it scorned Lilith 300 years ago. Now her plan for revenge is bearing fruit as she brings the townspeople to their knees with one crippling spell after another.

    Terry Moore has been doing a good job at tackling the horror genre in this series. He manages to make this really creepy/terrifying without going to gore and monsters as a shorthand for "horror". Instead we having some really disturbing concepts like the murderous little girl who has some evil presence in her and the general forces of evil reasserting themselves in a fairly normal world. This normal world is made all the more real by Moore's realistic art style. He draws people that look like real people, particularly the women. This makes the sense of dread conveyed by the story feel all the more real. This series is highly recommended. Read Full Review

    And, in fact, this issue is something of a departure: a more or less self-contained historical piece, tightly plotted and well characterized; even the fact that one of the characters is familiar to regular readers of the series wouldn't leave the new reader lost. They would, though, lose the resonance of recognition, and sensing how this short piece fits into the whole. And then, on the final page, Moore peels back yet another layer of the book's central mystery, and I realize that the task is hopeless: Rachel Rising demands to be read from the beginning (Moore pretty much acknowledges this by refusing to include even a paragraph of recap at the beginning of each issue), with the new reader coming fresh to the story.

    A solid chapter that establishes key points, but lags in story. Read Full Review
