    Whilst there are occasional problems with the artwork (one dark haired male is sometimes easily confused with another, especially at a distance), Huddleston excels himself for the most part, crafting an atmosphere of gloomy dark horror which perfectly suits the tone of the script. The sinister, otherworldly nature of the Mnemovore is well rendered, with tentacles which threaten to slither right off the page and cold, unfeeling eyes which seem to hypnotise the reader as much as the characters with their unflinching gaze. The climax of the issue, in which Kaley discovers the lair of the bizarre creature, is treated to an excellent two page spread which is only made more effective by the dank, claustrophobic feel of the scenes which have preceded it. Huddleston complements the script well to create a pitch-perfect horror-movie feel here, and it plays to the issues strengths. The final page cliffhanger also carries a tension and dramatic weight which owes a lot to Huddlestons visuals Read Full Review
