Another 4 issue mini-series and one that I read about in the Comics Buyers Guide. The story sounded good so I picked this issue up at my local shop. Right off the bat this comic starts out strong. The lead character is trying to break into a house. But first she has to magically seal the exits by drawing symbols in chalk on the outside of the house. You see, the inhabitants of the house are up to no good. Theyre going to raise a demon tonight and Nobody has to stop them by completing the rest of the wards inside the house.
I dont want to give much more of the plot away because you really should seek this comic out and watch it unfold for yourself. Questions are left unanswered but done in such a way as to make you look forward to the discovering answers. I like my horror/noir comics with a good amount of black space in the art and Charlie Adlards work is perfectly suited to the genre. Give Nobody a try if youre a fan of this kind of comic.
