    Since Cemetery Beach is only going to have seven issues, there is a lot of pressure for each issue to contain as much information as possible without overloading readers. The creative team behind this story is proving to be capable of this by revealing details in a way that feels natural and not forced, and keeping enough information hidden so that readers want to come back for the next issue to find out more.
