The storm continues to gestate. Lost in a wilderness known as The Green Ribbon, Eulalie is faced with an impossible decision: return home to a family that has forsaken her, or finish her journey to the northern town to deliver the mysterious package. She must decide wisely, for threats lurk behind every tree and the snow has an appetite of its own.

    Is the world meant to be known or do we shape our own realities? These are the tough questions that Eulalie has to constantly ask herself. And worse yet, she has to find the answers alone. This was another great issue that continues to deliver a fantastic eldritch tale. The artwork is simply amazing. I feel like I'm going to say this every issue but it's true. The imagery is just so realistic and combined with the excellent coloring, it's a hauntingly beautiful experience. The musings from Eulalie's journal entries are my favorite part of the comic. Her emotions ooze from each entry and it feels like we're experiencing the journey with her. Black Stars Above definitely has my attention and I can't wait to see how this mystery unravels!
