The way that they were talking during the solicits made it seem like this was the end of the series. With that in mind I expected some sort of resolution. While we get a lot of background on the BEKs, we get neither a definitive answer to their origins nor do we get the reason of what this series has been building up to. Instead we get an End Of Season One blurb at the end of the book. Fair enough.
There is still a lot of good Horror fun to be had along the way. We finally discover what Meredith and Gus have meant to this group of BEKs and why they have been allowed to live...so far, at least.
I'm still enjoying this series, so I will be back if and whenever it is relaunched. It's been a fun ride and aside from the endless sea of blues used in the color palette I can't find any fault with the series. It's a good classic style Horrror comic brought into the 21st century.
Junk Food For Thought rating: 4.25 out of 5.
The OCD zone- This is the part where I go into tactile sensations and materials of physical media. Those with heart conditions, high blood pressure, or women who are pregnant should exit my blog at their earliest convenience, as their safety cannot be guaranteed beyond this point.
This book was originally announced as Vol. 3: Past Lives, for those interested in that sort of trivia.
