It's the Alpha and Omega, really.

I didn't really know what to expect, at the end of Infidel. If anything, the entire plot and setting of Infidel is built on uncertainty: of how far your prejudices affect your reality, on how well the characters perceive reality, on -- as one of the characters in this issue put it in another context -- perceiving "appearances over truth." There has be more

"... And how do you fight something you can't touch? That other people can't see?"

"How the hell did we not hear all this noise ..."

"Why... why is it so quiet? Why is it so quiet when it is so loud out there?"

I don't even know where to begin.

For some reason, I can't really let go of the beginning of this issue: this abstract, almost glyphic aesthetic reminiscent of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis that sheds more light on the childhoods of Medina and Aisha. It is both literal and figurative all at the same time, this shared space between them. Campbell and Powell excel in this opening sequence. more

I didn't think I was going to have anything more to add after reading the first issue of this series. But the words "Fuck" in varying emphases on syllables came out of my mouth a lot, especially towards the end of the issue itself.

The mystery is starting to be revealed with a few details, some symbols, some references to past events. Even Leslie, Aisha's potential mother-in-law seems t more

Infidel is horrific and disturbing, but not because of gore or the monsters. It's true that there are monsters and spirits, and elements of the supernatural in this first issue. However, what I really find unsettling is just how the personal horror or, should I say, the interpersonal horror hits so close to home.

I think it's because the comic already shows you what is at stake. You ha more
