Comments: Well lots of killing and murdering going on here and tons of blood. Yet this Evil Ernie is definitely way different then any other versions. This is the new Evil Ernie.
Ernest Gleckman is the main character here. It is great to see Smiley on his coat. Smiley now he still seems his old self.
Now before all the killing started Ernest was a student and his life was fairly normal. A night performing singing for Ernest leads to us seeing a beautifully presented scene of frightening horror as he leaves the bar.
Things go from bad to worse as Ernest heads home. He meets a group of bikers along his way. Now what happens next we know just not how. This issue leaves a lot of unanswered questions.
This is a watered down version of Evil Ernie. Almost everything about him has been changed. This is a totally new character. Will Ernest become Evil Ernie probably just not the one from other comic book series of the same name.
The art is done very well. It delivers a story with hints at the evil yet to come. Smiley the button is here and he adds a nice mysteriously weird touch to the comic.
