    This comic has the right amount of horror, dread and Tarantino-type story telling (that's a compliment) that can easily be translated to the big screen as a movie. These kindred of the senses are scary. I am not sure how this vengeance tale is going to play out, but it definitely makes me more appreciative of all my senses. The "clean up" minister Barret at the end is scary. "There is always one left to tell the story"." Read this comic on the edge of your seat as it is written for you to do so! Read Full Review

It's a good behind the scenes look at the series.Check out Jonas Scharf on Art Station or InstagramBushwhacked, Episode 3 of Firefly, deals with similar themes of spiritual corruption.I'm hooked. Basilisk is a tale of revenge mixed with a little sci-fi and horror. It has strong characters and a quickly moving plot. The backstory of the Chimera, both their attack on Kingsly and before emerging from the mountains, is a constant cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Bunn seems to be one of the busiest names in comics right now, and he's putting out a lot of good stuff. That said, if I was only allowed to commit to only one of his ongoing titles, it would without a shred of doubt in my mind be Basilisk. Read Full Review

    Ok, I've got to grips with the powers of each member of the group, I now want to see them take on Hannah and Regan. Bunn is old hat at slowly ratcheting up the tension and this fits his style and technique well. I am now fed up with diner massacres and expect the plot to move towards a conflict between the players' next issue. Read Full Review

    This feels like the first dud of the series so far, unfortunately. Read Full Review
