Nothing is creepier than possessed children. Wait, no, possessed dolls. Those are worse. Anyway, our heroes Joe and Annie find themselves under assault from a horde of possessed kids, all under the command of the mystical baddie Slackjaw. In reality, Slackjaw's a possessed child himself, so it might be time to call in Brimstone for an exorcism. Unfortunately, Joe's having a crisis of conscience because he doesn't want to fight children, even if they're possessed by the devil. So how do you stop a child-devil army without hurting the innocent possessed?

    The Curse of Brimstone #6 was a roller coaster of emotions when there was so much to consider morally about how to handle a town full of murderous kids. Could they save these kids? Save Slackjaw from himself? Save themselves from making a hard call? Anything could have gone right or wrong. One thing was for sure, and that's a new determination to see this mission through to the end. Read Full Review

    The New Age of DC Heroes books have been all over the place with their artists, but I can safely say I was not expecting to see a comic book legend like Denys Cowan stop in for a stint on The Curse of Brimstone. He's done work for DC on the recent Deathstroke Annual, but this is such a random choice. And, as it turns out, a brilliant one for the demonic thriller's most horror-based issue yet.

    This was a tough one. There are no easy answers when you stack heroic morals against the willful violence of a child who can kill you and must be stopped. Its Kobayashi Maru all over again. But, instead of making the wrong choice, or even cheating, Joe and Annie have accepted things the way they are, and this is a moral dilemma that will continue to create more problems for Joe, Annie, and Brimstone in their quest to stop The Salesman.

    Last issue provided some hope for this series, but this installment went a long way toward squashing it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 5, 2018

    While some may like the horror elements to this story, I feel that it's just too predictable and boring as it just recycles moments from popular horror movies and tv.  While the art is decent, it feels less than what we've been getting lately so not even that can save this issue from mediocrity that's falling towards flat out boring.

    The irony of The Curse of Brimstone being canceled is that It is my favorite title of the "New Age of Heroes" titles and also one of my favorite DC titles overall. 

    The other ironic aspect of this series is that the writer of the series, Justin Jordan has blocked me on social media. This is a person that I've had no interaction with outside heaping praise on this series month after month. 

    Justin uses block-chains to block anyone affiliated with or adjacent to #Comicsgate. My intuition tells me that maybe if Justin hadn't blocked a significant portion of his potential fanbase on twitter. The Curse of Brimstone would have probably been better received. It's a great concept and on its own merits didn't deserve to be ca more
