    Im a big fan of the short OGN format and Aftershock have hit on a great format which I hope continues long into the future. Self-contained stories that you can pick up and enjoy over a coffee or a bus journey. Piecemeal delivers big time. What starts out feeling like a safe bet horror story turns the concept on its head to smack you with schlocky B-Movie brilliance. The crescendo of violence and weird occurrences leads to a fitting ending that dangles doubt in the readers mind. Well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 9, 2020

    Szymon Kudranski's art adds to the atmosphere with a moody style full of mystery. With lettering by Marshall Dillon, the art delivers a poetic vibe about Bunn's dialogue and plot. Kudranski focuses on blues and purples delivering a "dark" style to the comic but still one that's clear as to what's going on. There's also plenty of horror and gore without going over the top to distract. Much is left to the reader's imagination making the deaths a bit more horrific as our minds fill in the gaps.
