From Russ Manning Award-winning and Eisner-nominated Harrow County cocreator Tyler Crook comes this supernatural fantasy about loss, power, and destiny.

An old and out-of-practice monster hunter in hiding crosses paths with a young girl that forces him to confront these chaotic creatures. As the beasts invade their tenement, they set off on a supernatural road trip to stop these ancient evils in a story that explores the ways that youth informs adulthood and how early traumas can haunt us of in old age.

    The Lonesome Hunters gets off to a really strong start with an interesting backstory, which I suspect we may see more of in flashbacks. The art style is absolutely beautiful, but also quite eery in that there is almost a sepia-type quality to it. I particularly loved the sequence with the magpies and how that paid off.

    Crook pulls double duty with the art in the issue and I love the style. Every page not only evokes the tone of the story but also the emotions of the characters. Read Full Review

    The Lonesome Hunters #1 is a spectacular opening issue. It does everything a reader could hope an introductory issue does, and looks good while doing it. A poor ending though does keep this from being perfect. Read Full Review

    An unlikely pair of monster hunters. A killer Bambi and a magpie from hell. This issue seems to have it all, and yet it's not quite interesting enough to keep readers demanding more. Read Full Review

    While it's a bit premature to say Howard's a coward, the first scene shows Howard freezing up during a raid. He was pressed into service by his father, and in the course of an attack on "paganist heresy," his father was stabbed in front of him.Crook's spectacular painted pages.A panel from The Lonesome Hunters #1, courtesy of Dark Horse ComicsLupe, an innocent, moody teenage thief, brings the series fully into modernity and out of Howard's head. More to say about what happens next, but as John Updike said, go easy on the plot summary. Jude previously covered The Lonesome Hunters #1 here. Read Full Review
