A supernatural tale of friendship, the devil, and moral gray areas. New curate Billie Baker does her best to reach out to the small coastal parish's wayward youth, but when a supernatural rain brings forth an aquatic demon, she finds that she doesn't see eye-to-eye with her boss's way of dealing with things.

    There's a lot to like here and John Allison stuffs a lot into each and every page. I particular like Billie's tripe to the Satanist temple to get some help from Maggie but shows up when they're amid a ritual and the like, which she was so not ready for. Beyond that, however, we get a solid story that moves things forward and gives us a better idea as to who everyone is and their motivations. I like Billie a lot as she's so earnest here and her relationship with Maggie is a hoot to watch. I am curious how far we'll get in understanding this larger fight that's been going on as it's laid out too simply and with obvious paths at the moment and I'd like something a little richer than that.

    Even with this being the least of the comics Allison has written this year " that might be more of a compliment towards their greatness " Steeple still perfectly conveys his sensibilities. Read Full Review

    While John Allison's Steeple #2 doesn't bring as much shock as the debut issue, it does show that there are quite a few layers to this five-issue miniseries. Read Full Review
