    This is undoubtedly the strongest issue of the series so far, and serves as a true testament to the creative synergy of both writer and artist. Everything is measured, everything is controlled, but that only makes the unfolding horror all the more unsettling as events play out with an almost morbid certainty. Will Iris survive the demons of his past as they come looking for him? Does he even deserve to? Simply put, THE DARK AND THE BLOODY is one of the most utterly compelling horror titles on the shelves today, and deserves to be seen by as many wide, terrified eyes as possible. Read Full Review

    This issue delivers a solid second half that's gripping and painful to get through which is something horror can rarely do. The story however continues to feel too slow and it's becoming harder to care as it reaches at straws for meaning. Read Full Review
