More Gruesome Truths Laid Out In Regression #10

by Brendan M. Allen

Time is an illusion, and the walls constructed by our own perceptions are starting to crumble. Molly and Anton have learned the shocking truth of their own past lives, and these truths may lead them to Adrian’s captors. But Adrian might be beyond help. As his reality begins to crumble, the fiendish Gregory Sutter lives once more. Could salvation lie not in a past-life regression, but in a future-life PROgression? 

Every time it seems like all the information is already out on the table in Regression, Cullen Bunn jumps way out ahead, throwing insane twists into the mix. The connections between Sutter, Molly, and Graymercy run way deeper than it seemed when this thing started up last year. Chapter 10 opens up a whole new can of crazy. Adrian has turned. He’s given in to Sutter and is about to address the cult for the first time as their leader. Molly and Anton are elbows deep in mind bending revelations about their own pasts.

With everything that’s happening here, it would be really easy to get lost. Danny Luckert and Marie Engert keep everything straight, while simultaneously delivering some of the most visceral aesthetics in comics. Each timeline and setting has its own distinct look and palette. A second (and third) pass is in order to catch all the slick panel and gutter work.

As the lines between past, present, and future horrors continue to blur, the terrifying scope of this story is coming into focus. As you tear through these pages to get to the final reveal, you’ll be lulled into thinking there’s no possible way this thing could go further south. And then it does. Over and over again.
