    This time around, Giuseppe Camuncoli did do a great job on the page and panel layouts. There is a great splash page with an insert on page three of the book that really captured poor Grimaldis plight. The demon for this issue is suitably scary and also fairly icky (Think Man-Bat spliced with Alien and the frumpiest elementary school teacher you can remember). My major criticism in Lee Loughridges coloring. He does some interesting things with tonal change to underscore the pace and even the meaning of the narrative but some sections of this issue are pitch black and others washed out with bright yellow. On the other hand, if you like stylish demon women, youll love Lee Bermejos cover. Read Full Review
