    Even in the face of so much adversity, Sir Edward Grey continues on. He's determined to root out the occult evils that are troubling his native land. Witchfinder: City of the Dead is a no-brainer for any fans of the Mignolaverse. It holds that same feeling of darkness and dread that permeates through the likes of Hellboy, B.P.R.D., and Abe Sapien. There are all kinds of things lurking in the shadows and Grey is there to drag them into the light. Read Full Review

    A solid issue for sure, but I can't help but also wonder if things are starting to become, to use your word, overstuffed. This is a dense story so far, and my hope is that we can have just a little breathing room in the future. Read Full Review

    The art that Stenbeck gives is dark, gritty, and gives the reader a little ominous feeling. Stenbeck creates scenes that are fitting to the dialogue and is quite detailed. This is by no means a home run in terms of artwork or dialogue, but considering how the first issue started, this is a big step in the right direction. It is a bit shady whether or not this would pull new readers into it but if you are willing to spend the money and invest the time in this story arc, then it could be something that really takes off and turns out to be great in the future. This is a somewhat unique spin-off on a familiar Sherlock Holmes type story. It will be interesting to see where Mignola and Roberson decide to set themselves apart and create something truly original, but up till this point, there are too many similarities to many other stories that create a barrier when trying to read through the issue.
