Talk about a horror show-and the demonic lead character ain't even the half of it! Siblings Joe and Annie find themselves in a town terrorized by the omnipotently evil Bel Dame, who uses an army of the maimed undead to do her bidding-such as torturing Joe (a.k.a. Brimstone). The Bel Dame decides to teach our fiery hero a lesson in sacrifice, and it's one so horrifying, it may just rip the brother-sister duo apart for good.

    The Curse of Brimstone #8 did not play around when it came to the lesson that this Bel Dame had to teach Joe in sacrifice. It was as clever as it gets for taking Joe to that tipping point where he could both lose himself to Brimstone and lose the trust that his sister has in him. I knew heartbreak was coming for this brother-sister duo inevitably, but not like this. This is a story that knows how you play with your emotions in the best of ways. Read Full Review

    The Bel Dame strikes a devastating blow to Joe and Annie, driving a wedge between them that won't be easily fixed. Joe is once again forced to use his powers, despite the ever-growing cost they have. Each time he fires them up, a piece of his humanity is lost and it's become more and more difficult to get back to normal. You have to wonder if there will come a time where he won't be able to change back. The series is really hitting its stride. Read Full Review

    This series has been effective at telling creepy horror stories, but the overarching mythology isn't quite coming together yet. Read Full Review

    This is a fun book to look at, don't expect the same level of entertainment from the story itself. Read Full Review
