  1. Oh man! That sucks. But the premise sounds so creepy though. I’m gonna add it to my TBR, lol, and take a chance with it. I just really like how creepy it sounds. Since it doesn’t seem to have been as well executed as it could be, maybe I won’t be as scared while reading.

  2. Surprisingly, I didn’t hate this story. I admit it was a bit of a mess, and the closeup drawings made everyone look haggard, but I managed to come away liking the story. At least the next story, Plunge, is the best of the five books from Hill House.

  3. It seems like you’ve been quite unlucky with those low ratings recently.
    Sounds like a version of “Ghost.” Also, a being that goes by the name “Brother” but it seems to have an intimate relationship with the kid? Maybe I’m just reading too much into your review but it doesn’t sound all that great.

    1. It’s definitely a weak title and I’d have a hard time recommending it to anyone. I would much rather steer them towards both Joe Hill titles within the Hill House Comics line-up. The ideas in this one are just so weakly put together without adding anything new to things we might have already seen before.
