Frank at Home #1 Review:
A Dark Interlude is marketed by Vault Comics as a kind-of-sequel to Fearscape In reading the first issue, it makes quite the metatextual commentary about sequels, essentially telling the reader, multiple times, that while this is a follow-up story, it's also something entirely new Let's see if that's true. A Dark Interlude #1 cover Credit: BOOM! Studios A[...]
Frank at Home #1 Review:
Written by Cavan Scott, drawn by Corin Howell, colored by Triona Farrel, and lettered by AndWorld Design, Shadow Service is a strong offering from Vault Comics that has the chops to be an ongoing series Let's dive into this fourth issue, which follows up on an insane cliffhanger in Shadow Service #3 that saw the lead character Gina willingly get possessed[...]
