Underwinter #1 Review: Fawkes Brings Modern Horror to Image
By Art Macias
Created by Ray Fawkes (The People Inside, One Soul, and Constantine), Underwinter begins his tale with a beautiful mixture of word and art that grabs the readers attention right away. His use of watercolors gives the story an almost dreamlike quality, which along with his dialogue is a perfect fit for the story.
As our book begins we are introduced to the members of a symphony quartet who are hired to play for a mysterious recluse. Being paid very handsomely to perform, they agree to follow all of the obscure rules that are set for them in order to play; one of them being is to perform blindfolded.
This is the start of an amazing horror tale with enough tension and suspense to bring the reader back for more. I for one cannot wait to see where Mr. Fawkes takes us after the conclusion of this issue.
