    Overall, Abattoir is another worthy offering from a worthy publisher of some of the most visually striking, and creepy, comic books in the industry. Nearly all of Radical Comics books are worth reading for the art and story, Abattoir isnt an exception. Its simply another example of the type of high quality work being done at Radical Comics.

    It seems from the get-go that Abattoir is determined to give its characters and readers pure bloody hell. Fans of horror comics will love this kind of hell. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 27, 2010

    I think what makes the story so compelling is that the writers present their protagonist, Richard Ashwalt, with two different conflicts. One is ordinary - he's dissatisfied with his life but wants to work hard to provide for his family - and the other is unreal and dangerous. Richard's everyday problems are relatable and grounded, and they bring credibility to the (seemingly) supernatural challenge that's intruded into his life. I love the air of mystery that surrounds Jebediah Crone, which is surprising, since the reader knows (or strongly suspects) he's snatching up murder scenes for his own twisted, macabre purposes. I want to know what he's up to, and I want to know what caused the murders that sparked this whole situation in the first place. The writers have done an excellent job of establishing a tense though alluring, dark mood that's difficult for the reader to resist. Read Full Review
