This week sees the second issue of writer Chris Sebela and artist, Shawn McManus, American gothic book, House Amok, in which the Sandifers take a road trip on the highway to Hell. McManus proves, once again, what a talent he is and it’s great to see him back on a comic again. But then, that’s the beauty of Black Crown, who seem to be seeking out experienced artists to work with relatively new writers. Seems to be a winning formula so far! Helping out are Aditya Bidikar on letters and Lee Loughridge on colours.
The Sandifers weren’t always nuts. They were made that way by stories, conspiracies, and coincidence. As Dylan continues to recount how she spent her summer vacation full of murder, the truth behind how she and her family infected each other with madness comes out. Secrets and blood run deep, but family is forever, no matter how deranged they might be.
