Yeesh. This is a story by Lauren Beukes and Dale Halverson that had a lot of promise. A small group of people that survived horrible horror-movie-like incidents as children are brought together as adults. There is a lot of creepiness and murder. It's moody and tense but quickly devolves into gratuitous violence and ridiculous plotting. It ended after nine issues but I'm curious what the long term plans were because this seems like it was forced to be rapidly wrapped up.
Ryan Kelly's art is nice and moody but by the end it was... exhausting. I don't know. I really didn't like this. I can't see how Vertigo thought that there was an audience for it.
I read it all, but I must admit after the first few issues I had no idea what was going on, and I didn't remember one issue to the next. I thought it was supposed to be about an evil video game but now........hell if I know.
