    In the best tradition of classic horror, the scares are building to something big. After reading the last page, it's going to really bad for the heroes. Period piece thrills that won't fail to frighten. Scary fun. Read Full Review

    More questions are posed than answered, but then it's still early days yet and I think I've made it pretty clear I'm sucked in. You should be too. Read Full Review

    The quality of the book remains high, which is a credit to all involved. With a book or series of books, that feature one particular style of universe, it's easy to lose the reader's attention and human nature means we are always looking to knock down that which remains at a high level. This book, for the most part, is an exception. Hopefully the story will continue to surprise in what is becoming a congested genre. Read Full Review

    With that said, the writing and artwork are excellent. As it's being read, The Cult of the Red King noticeably has a rich-history behind it from how Mignola and Golden tell the story to Peter Bergting's stylized visuals. Think Francesco Francavilla in terms of the art. Apologies but another cliche here is necessary. It has the potential because of the already built world Mignola and Golden have created in Baltimore's past works. But issue no. 3 needs to make this setting feel new to newcomers of the series by either providing more origin or starting to reveal some continue-reading worthy plot points because so far its unfocused story, poor characterization and slow-build are holding back what could be a must read series.
