This popular urban legend is retold with twists and turns that will scare you to shreds! When a married man’s young but gorgeous neighbor catches his attention, his entire world is about to be turned upside down. And only his willpower can protect him from the fate that awaits.
Well I’m not sure exactly what Urban Legend this is but hey who cares go with it. It’s definitely a story worthy of the series and why you should keep your eyes on your spouse and keep it in your pants. I’m still not sure we need Keres in this at all the space she takes up when she opens the issue could be better spent on the story itself. I mean c’mon we know what this series is about and I find her involvement unnecessary at best.
The setup for the story itself however is nicely done. Though why men have to be portrayed as so wandering is beyond me but it’s all good. Seeing Henry spot the neighbor out by the pool well yeah that’s going to warrant a look. I have to admit though that as the story unfolds and we learn what’s really going on I was more than pleasantly surprised. This didn’t go anyway like I had thought it would and that in itself was amazing to see.
I love Eric J and his artwork. He’s got such a wonderful style and his realism is one of the things I think is beyond measure in this industry. He needs to more books here since his style really suits everyday people and the way he is able to show emotion on faces makes reading this story so much interesting. Plus his use of pages and panel layouts is so good to keep the story moving along so you can really get a lot from his work.
The story and the dialogue here are meant to creep you out and in this instance as you read it you begin to question what’s happening and then by the reveal you really are at a state of wait what woah. There’s a page in here that really takes the reader to a place almost unbelieveable as the story culminates at it’s highest point. Wow again this is Eric at his finest. Then the ending well it’s pure Zenescope as you should always be wary of anyone you meet and the consequences of your actions.
I gotta say this was nearly a perfect one and done.
