We first met Louis in 1978 at the scene of a concert fire where he found the Silver Coin. Then we saw him shortly after, at that diner that went up in flames. And again some years later, dead after a home invasion. So how did the ill-fated firefighter spend his time with the coin? Or rather: how did the coin spend him? The next chapter in the acclaimed horror anthology from MICHAEL WALSH, JAMES TYNION IV, STEPHANIE PHILLIPS, JOHNNIE CHRISTMAS, and PORNSAK PICHETSHOTE is out this month.

    As The Silver Coin goes on a hiatus with issue #15, it couldn't have done so at a better point in the larger story. Walsh leaves its readers with a revelation that the coin is a curse needing to be fed by its wielders, utilizing the existing evil inside to enact its wicked actions. Read Full Review

    Walsh pulls double duty with the illustrations in this issue and both writing and drawing the story gives you a wonderful sense of the feelings the story is trying to elicit visually. Read Full Review

    Even as the larger narrative comes into focus, it's the impact of each individual issue that still resonates most clearly in The Silver Coin and this story of the evil that men do promises readers there's far more terror to come whenever the series returns. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Oct 17, 2022

    Series co-creator Michael Walsh pulls double duty on this issue as both writer and artist. It's the last we'll see of The Silver Coin for a while, as he raises his family. It's a fitting ending for now of a consistently strong series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 19, 2022

    Fifteen issues. Thats all that the Silver Coin has for now. Its had some very powerful moments in the course of its run. Its disappointing to see the coin roll into a spin and fall on its back for an indefinite period of time. The coin is patient, though. It could be picked up again next year. Or maybe a couple of years from now. The eye of the coin blinks. Perhaps theres some satisfaction in that eye. Maybe its somewhat aware that its found a bit of an iconic place on the comics page.
