A break in the case comes at a deadly cost, but there's little time to mourn when a far more dangerous foe waits in the wings. Edwin and Charles find themselves face-to-face with Thessaly the witch, and she's hungry to do what she does best...exact revenge on those who have crossed her.

    Sandman Universe: Dead Boy Detectives #5 delivers everything I love about comics. Great characters, next-level threats, humor, scares, and thrills. The fact that it also educates while it entertains is a huge bonus. While this is a brilliant horror series, it also sheds light on life, love, and the problems faced by the children of immigrants.

    Stokely delivers some great art in the issue. The visuals are fun in moments while delivering genuine scares in others. The balance is brilliantly done and beautifully complements the story. Read Full Review
