Comments: Salem is out prowling around the town. He sees something of a mystery and you know what they say about curiousity and the cat. Well Salem ignores that and wants his curiousity satisfied.
A sorcerer tries to get Abaddon a demon to infuse itself in Salem. Well with other animals this may work but with Salem well he is different then the other animals. Salem is far more than an ordinary cat. He was once so much more.
Salem is drawn with a look of intelligence to him. The whole issue has a spooky feel to it. The sorcerer is drawn ordinary. He should have had more of a threatening attitude and look to how he acted.
The sorcerer possesing animals with demons was done in a boring way. No excitement to it. No thrills or chills. The issue needed more to it.
Salem is the best part of this comic book he makes you think of him not just as a cat but as a character you want to know what he is up to. Yes the fact he is a cat stands out and also that he was once a person. Salem is actually one of the good guys here and now.
