Pumpkinhead #4 Review: Flawed but Fun Demon vs. Demon Action

One thing of significance happens in the Sheriff’s part of the plot, but everything around it is of little consequence.I know I’m damning with fine praise here, but I did quite enjoy the parts with Pumpkinhead fighting the demon that was chasing Haggis (sorry, I forget which demon is chasing her).[caption id="attachment_856577" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Pumpkinhead[...]

Pumpkinhead #1 Review: Some of Writer Cullen Bunn's Finest Work

Admittedly, it could become a problem after the fact for everyone else looking into this case, which builds a tension for the long haul.There’s a short section at the end that deals with the demon of gluttony, and it brings a Tales from the Crypt vibe to complement the main tale.[caption id="attachment_802135" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Pumpkinhead[...]
