Comments: “Memento Mori: Part 1”
The build-up is suspenseful and when we see the Crow he is an imposing figure. David has risen from the grave.
The story is dark and brooding. Lots of building on the atmosphere. The art is rough and does fit the story, yet a little more focus to it would have been better.
The Crow in a fight is ruthless in his actions, yet his banter is light.  He knows what he is doing.
Some explanation as to why and who he is killing would have been nice.
“Buried Virtue”
Hecatomb is following a crow. This story flows smoothly but goes nowhere. The killer Hecatomb is illustrated well enough only a little more focus though would help to see her more fully.
For a Crow comic, this issue needed more to it.
