The mystery deepens, and the horror elements of this title continue to move closer and closer to the forefront of this book. Everything with Bishop in this issue was incredibly creepy, and at the end, when the weird cultists showed up to save Hank… it spells trouble. I really like how everything is proving to be more and more connected. The murder that Booker is investigating… the victim was also an ex-boyfriend of Jo’s. Bishop visits the Gangster that Hank proved was working with Booker, and now Nicolas Lash’s father has appeared. Add to that the grisly descriptions of what happened to Hank’s wife and unborn child, and this issue really did amp up the creep-factor. Sean Phillips’ art was once again fantastic, and the back-matter article about the real-life inspiration for Philip Marlowe was awesome. This book is, just like every other Brubaker/Phillips collaboration, a must-buy, I’m running out of superlatives here!
