Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This horror comic is brilliantly adapted from a Stephen King short story, published in his recent collection, Just After Sunset. King readers will recognize the rural Maine setting, the menacing tone, and the constant threat of evil lurking, just waiting to break into the everyday life of unsuspecting normal folks. In this world, those with OCD behaviors are actually right, the world will fall apart if they don't count and arrange their surroundings to precise specifications, because "the gate in our heads... one that keeps insanity in all of us from flooding our intellects" has been breached. Not only that, but the disease is catching, as one obsessive compulsive passes his or her disorder on to whomever they reveal it to. The storytelling is tight and utterly, creepily effective, while the gritty, detailed drawing style pulls the horror from even the most innocent setting, inky abstraction of nightmare energies rising from the earth contrasting, to horrifying effect, with near photo-realistic drawings of characters' faces. A gripping, masterful story that anyone who doesn't scare easily—and many who do—will relish. (Nov.)

*Book source ~ Library Ackerman’s Field. It should be a peaceful place of Nature, to sit and enjoy the view, have a picnic or toss a Frisbee about. But no. What is it about this particular place and why does it affect some people and not others? Real or delusions? Who’s brave enough to find out? Well, this isn’t creepy at all. I don’t read Stephen King. Ever. Or watch movies (except for the bits and pieces I’ve accidentally seen over the years) adapted from his books. Because heebie jeebies. But when I saw a graphic novel adapted from one of his short stories I thought to myself: “Self, this might be doable.” So I picked it up. The artwork is awesome. Very chilling. The story itself is eerie. I’m a bit confused by the ending, but overall this would be a decent addition to any horror aficionado’s repertoire. Especially one who likes graphic novels.

I found this title very interesting epically how it came up with the idea of possession to schizophrenia. I know it's just a concept to make an intestine story but very entertaining.
