    The Me You Love in the Dark #5 is an incredible work that's emotionally disturbing and cleverly uses the haunted house trope in a sadly relatable way for readers to connect to. It also ends in a satisfying way, wrapping up a series that is going to be even better when collected. This is a dark and haunting horror story that will affect you emotionally and visually.

    I loved the early issues of this book ; the setup was brilliant as was the slow paced love story. Thing is, at some point the horror part was going to come crashing in. It's a shame that once the full force and view of the creature is shown, the book loses some of its nuance. It is kin of like the Batman Arkham Asylum game in that you complete loads of tasks and clever subplots only for the game to end on a button bashing giant Joker, which doesn't quit leave up to the various other aspects of the game. Thankfully, vagian like the game, this final aspect does not detract from a larger whole. Read Full Review

    Things had to go this way, and it's tragic to end. It is, however, a truly engaging tale of twisted love that's well worth the time and money. Read Full Review
