Infidelity and incantations can lead to some strange bedfellows as Fredrick tries to convince his children to avoid his footsteps at all costs (it's hard enough trying to keep a family together without mechanical monsters knocking at your window and strange apparition living in the closet). All in a days work for the Allans of Gristlewood, USA.

    Again, Niles and Worm prove to be the ideal team for a horror comic. The pages look like relics, the frames like long-lost pictures of a scarier time. Blood-soaked, worn by time and weather, they are as monstrous as the story being told. Niles gets straight to the point in his dialogue which feels both timeless and timely without being clichd. Highly enjoyable horror. Read Full Review

    The first issue was amazing, and this second issue continues to darkly dazzle. Niles, who usually writes limited series, has done impressive story arcs with CRIMINAL MACABRE and 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. He usually tells a story and then lets it go for a while. This title will be different. Niles has announced that THE OCTOBER FACTION will be his first ongoing series, and it looks like he's got a winner here. Read Full Review

    I love when these guys work together. The writing is always brilliant and hits you in the face and Worm's artwork continues to be some of the most original stuff out there today. The mood this series carries is one that never fails to entertain and enthrall. Pick this up immediately. Read Full Review

    Still, I had a good enough time with The October Faction #2 that I decided to write this review, so it's obviously doing enough right that I want to stay on-board. I just hope it can fix its little glitches enough so as not to scare me away completely. Read Full Review
