A new chapter in the acclaimed horror anthology from STEPHANIE PHILLIPS, JAMES TYNION IV, JOHNNIE CHRISTMAS, PORNSAK PICHETSHOTE, and MICHAEL WALSH is out this month.

    The horror anthology series returns with a tale of a soldier seeking first blood during World War II. Great artwork from Michael Walsh and some supporting colors perfectly depict the bleakness of war and the impending doom brought forth from the eponymous coin. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 20, 2022

    The issue wraps up with the second part of Adam Gorhams Dark Passage serial. It feels a bit strange having the B feature in a series be the ongoing episodic bit while the main feature is a series of one-shot stories. The serial feels like a weird 4-page afterthought that isnt allowed to make enough of an impression to carry over into the next issue, which is a pity. It looks like an interesting story, but it doesnt seem to work in little 4-page bursts once per month.  Read Full Review
