Not my thing. Drawn in the style of a meth addict's middle school notebook cover. How much drugs equals this crap? Salem is a guy with a crooked eyebrow. Everything is drawn in a crooked, lazy Tim Burton style. Salem meets a contortionist early on, who seems to be an excuse to abandon basic anatomy. Later we meet a monkey girl who is apparently also a contortionist, since her limbs just go every which way. Boring & predictable, with an ORB & some shadow monsters, this was just not my thing. Barely finished it. Would burn it if I owned it. Alan Moore sucks too.

A powerful, condensed fusion of goth, arabesque, noir, and lots of ink. The pages are lush with the ink and edgy with sharp arabesque lines. This is a labor of love and shows it on every page and in every panel. The characters are well written, the story interesting. Salem may be a young aimiable soul, but he is always ready and determined in a shadowy world he had never imagined possible. I would love to see more by these creators, and more of Salem and his friends and enemies.
