DARK GODS #4 Review

.
Gail Williams gives praise to the Dark Gods...


The story so far -  IT specialist Joshua has escaped his office building as all Hell breaks loose - literally. Helped to get out by Marion and Murdock, Joshua joins them and their quest. A quest to try to stop the rise of the horrors as seen at Joshua’s work. They have been to what they believe is the head quarters of the organisation trying to raise Hell, a raid which became a blood bath and took the loss of many of Murdock’s men, but they got the mastermind they were after. Now to continue …


Issue four sees our heroes wading thigh deep into grey areas that are usually the work of the bad guys. Does torture ever really work?

Well in this case it seems to.

Yet for all the brutality, this issue also shows that paying attention and listening has its merits too, and Joshua shows his worth. Nightmares and horrors are drawn apace and symbols draw the reader in.

The Chtuhlu influences are well and truly on display here. The death, torture and mayhem was on every page, almost every panel, I particularly liked the woman who pulled her own eyeballs out - just what I needed after a hard day. What was interesting was the use of that most insidious of invaders, the most perfidious of intruders, the Japanese knotweed of the technological world - the <profanity of choice> smart phone.

Another good instalment from Jordan and Erramouspe, and Avatar Comics. Great horror artwork, worth the read.

Gail Williams lives in her own private dungeon populated with all the weird and the wonderful she can imagine. Some of it’s very weird, and the odd bits and pieces are a bit wonderful. Well okay, she lives in Swansea with her husband and daughter. And the world’s most demanding cat. To find out more about Gail, check out www.gailbwilliams.co.uk - Dare you!
