The Curse of Brimstone #7 continues with another excellent issue. After taking down another of the Salesman's pawns. Joe and Annie continue their journey and discover another small town under his influence. The story direction should be getting old but the scenarios keep getting darker and more interesting as the series progresses. It's a real shame that the series has been canceled.
In this issue, the town looks pristine from the outset but upon closer inspection, it's clear that something is terribly wrong as all of the inhabitants are missing limbs.
The situation is already pretty dark and gets downright grim when it's revealed that beyond the dismembered townsfolk, women and children are being trafficked into this situation against their will.
The Curse of Brimstone is without a doubt my favorite comic under "The New Age of Heroes" banner. Imagine Spawn on a road trip and you have Brimstone. The art direction for this issue is flat out gorgeous.
The team of Eduardo Pansica, Julio Ferreira, and Rain Beredo deserve praise.
The issue is the perfect blend of anti-heroics and atmosphere. I'm currently reviewing a legit horror comic and the atmosphere is ruined by the colorist. This issue is a perfect example of how it's done, the right way.
While trafficking is nothing to take lightly I appreciate Justin Jordan, not shying away from mature storytelling and themes. The Curse of Brimstone is a top tier horror series that deserved much more attention than it received.
