Melba is assigned to her first case, investigating a series of child disappearances in rural Georgia. As Melba and Agent Crockett uncover clues about the horror gripping the residents, Melba must resist both the temptation to escape into the real world after spending seven years locked up and the terrible appetite of the newly unleashed Polly Peachpit, Melba's own personal psychic parasite-a massive spider-human only Melba can see, but is far from imaginary.

    Tim Seeley and Stephen Molnar continue to deliver a fantastically scary horror comic that taps into the childhood innocence of the medium. This isnt a series to miss for readers that like original ideas, frights, artwork or well written prose. Read Full Review

    In two issues the series has given us a nice twist on the police procedural in a world that feels both realistic and a bit scary. Read Full Review

    This may be a much slower-paced issue than the first, but it provides some character work as we see this world laid out for us. With great art and an interesting premise, Tim Seeley is delivering a great book through 2 issues. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun story with a hint of creepiness as well.

    Aside from a slower pace and lack of immediate conflict, this is a good issue. If you like character work and the premise interests you, you'll enjoy this issue. Read Full Review
