    Terry Moore has made it clear that the sales numbers on this series are dropping, and if you've spent any time in the comicky part of Twitter lately, you've likely seen #SaveRachelRising here and there. Of course, regardless of whether we “save” it or not, “Rachel Rising” is and has been an excellent series. But it certainly deserves a larger audience than it has; and while it's a little late in the game to tell you to jump on “Rachel Rising”, this would certainly be the moment to tell your friends about the new arc coming up (at issue #25). This series clearly still has many avenues to explore, and it's hard to turn down the prospect of spending a little more time in a town as terrifying as Manson. Read Full Review

    Rachel Rising is more of a calm undulating stream rather than a torrent of rapids. But underneath the tranquil surface is evil, fear and despair and once you dive in you find you cannot escape. Read Full Review

    Still a strong series, but I can see why people prefer to read Terry Moore in trade sometimes. Read Full Review

    Terry Moore's self published RACHEL RISING is one of the best horror comics at the shelves at the moment. The story starts off with James finding it difficult to adjust in Jet's body while Dr. Siemens tries his best to keep Rachel's aunt Johnny alive. The opening page focuses on James's curious discovery of electric lights and modern day toilet. A great tragedy has hit hard certain characters in the last few issues but as usual, humor is present and this sequence between Rachel and Jet (or should I say 'James' ?) provides the comic relief for this installment. James helps Bryn to straighten out her past and what she discovers isn't pretty. Moore does an excellent job in this issue in storytelling, both story and art wise. The black and white art gives this series the depth it needs and the silent panels do an excellent job in portraying the situations and the feelings of the characters. There are supposedly talks about this series being adapted on the small screen, so start reading this series and find out what's it all about :)
