There's no child's play involved when the Salesman's ledger brings Joe and Annie to another mysterious town that he's destroyed, this time leaving it populated only by kids. So what happened to all the adults? You'd have to ask the town's leader, Slackjaw, but you're not gonna like the answer! Also, Annie might have made a love connection-with a serial killer named Wandering Jack, who's now stalking her.

    Brimstone continues its enjoyable slow burn as one of the more consistent New Age of Heroes titles. Jordan and Tan are delivering exactly what I want from this book and it's filling a very specific need for DC nicely. Read Full Review

    The Curse of Brimstone #5 did not miss the opportunity to shock these siblings with the reality that they still had not see the worst that can come of the Salesman's dealings. This story continues to stand out as one where we are getting the worst of what happens when the dark multiverse is trying everything to find footing in this universe. Read Full Review

    It was nice to enjoy a longer story. The second and third issues of Brimstone have been great one-shot stories that are concluded on the final page. The last issue provided the first taste ina longer arc. Expanding the players, layering the conflicts, pushes Joe, Annie, and Brimstone to reach, fail, and grow. I'm looking forward to the next chapter and bigger challenges. Read Full Review

    "The Curse of Brimstone" takes a step away from the more overt Ghost Rider comparisons with a truly disturbing story befitting its nature as the horror book of the "New Age of Heroes" initiative. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Aug 8, 2018

    The Curse of Brimstone has become this journey through the new monsters of the DC Universe. Writer Justin Jordan has taken us on a supernatural trip for the ages so far. The inconsistent artwork is hurting the series, so I hope that gets more streamlined in future issues. Having three different artists in one issue is a bit much. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of the supernatural, mystical, dark and horror mixed with a bit of road trip adventure, then this should be an easy enough and comfy title for you to enjoy. Read Full Review

    The big showdown will have to wait for next issue, and it could deliver, but this first installment didn't really sell me on this arc. Read Full Review

    I continue to enjoy every issue of The Curse of Brimstone. Issue #5 was no exception. I'm a fan of the superhero genre as well as horror and this series has proven to be a perfect blend of both. 

    In this issue, we're put into a "Village of the Damned" "Children of the Corn" type of setting where all of the adults have been killed and the horror comes from what would usually be the most innocent among us.  

    The premise is great as we continue to see our leads running into one nightmare situation to another. The children are being brainwashed by another person transformed after making a deal with "The Salesmen".

    At this point, the formula would be somewhat tiring but the villains have been so imaginative more

    This was stupid and lame as per usual. The "scary villain" is not scary. The song the children sing is not scary. This is a bad and dumb comic.
