Next in THE SILVER COIN, the hit horror anthology from VITA AYALA, JOSHUA WILLIAMSON, RAM V, MATTHEW ROSENBERG, and MICHAEL WALSH, comes a sequel 300 years in the making. Audrey is a high schooler with an unusual ability who's drawn to the occult. When she encounters the coin, she conducts a ritual meant to break its curse but instead summons something darker still. The coin's mystery deepens in part two of "Covenant."

    The Silver Coin #10 is a triumph in both art and storytelling and cements Walsh as one of the most inventive creators in the western horror comic space. Walsh takes the familiar premise of the Faustian bargain and makes it wholly original while building out mythology based in character work. Its a gripping way to expand the world of the series and provides even more fertile ground for future stories set in this world. From more eldritch terrors possibly trying to worm their way into the world, to other mystical beings at work (as seen in #7), and a possibly endless amount of flawed people with ironic desires, Walsh has built something special with The Silver Coin.

It pulls off the trick of being accessible with every issue, yet feels incredibly important in the craft of comics. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 16, 2022

    Wandering around in its nonlinearity, The Silver Coin has made its way to a past that's just over a decade old. The concept feels as compelling in the relative present as it had in the more distant past. The issue-ending fiction feels a bit more sophisticated than Walsh's piece, but there's an emotional resonance to what Walsh is putting down that's every bit as accomplished as Bidikar's piece.  Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Mar 21, 2022

    With a death toll that approaches slasher movie numbers, The Silver Coin is not for the faint of heart. But strong writing and artwork by Michael Walsh make this a horror story worthy of your time. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, The Silver Coin #10 functions as both a summer slasher and an origin story, offering readers visceral thrills and something to ponder before the series begins its third arc.
