Comments: Some boys are playing truth or dare. One boy tells of seeing a monster outside the house. This leads to something terrifying happening which we do not get the full details of but just enough so we know something happened to the children.
Then we see a young woman with a frightening mask. She completed one task and is ready for the next.
This young blonde woman has a presence about her that says do not disturb because she is already disturbed.
This woman does listen to James’s retelling of what happened to his friends. Yes, it is gory. What James saw was a nightmare come to life. The art brings this out fully.
This comic does have a dark and disturbing quality that does grab you. You will know fear.
