After being awakened from his long sleep in a shrine in Eastern Europe, Josef the Golem aids in the fight against the witches that once again terrorize humanity. Deployed to a small village where a cult has taken root, Josef encounters not only witches but an old enemy who remembers him well . . . and is out for vengeance!

    Those who are already fans of Joe Golem will continue to find enjoyment in this first issue, although anyone who is unfamiliar with the character could surely get a kick out of this book as well. Read Full Review

    I really loved the presentation of the comic. The creators choice to use dark colors complements the comics horror-ish vibe with contrasts when illustrating magical powers (bright orange and red). The mix of these two fit perfectly into the 1930s monster narrative which the comic is set in. Can't wait to see what becomes of Josef in consequent comics. Read Full Review
