Horror comics never really clicked with me, for whatever reason. I've been trying to figure it out for a while. I like everything in the Enigma of Amigara Fault, for example, until the very last page. The 'reveal' that seems to come at the end of every horror strip always sortof spoils the atmospheric buildup that comes before it. I had the same problem with Uzumaki: no matter how disturbing the images were, or how nightmarish and haunting certain concepts were, I was always so much more into the mystery than the revelation. I think too often horror creators and writers write the reveal to bring our worrying and wondering to an end, whereas I like shit that's left completely unexplained (I know Uzumaki is left this way in a narrative sense, but I mean overall as a resolution to the dread of 'what comes next?'). But that's a very particular niche. One of the most haunting stories I've ever read is "The Hour After Westerly," a short about a guy who loses track of an hour of time and has no idea where he was or what he did with it. Not really a premise that would catch on with all too many people, I think.
That unrelated shit aside, I really really enjoy this comic. The art starts very solid, perhaps a little stiff, and then gets really, really good. It makes very good use of the color scheme it allows itself to have, has a great variety of poses and makes use of the infinite canvas in a way I find interesting. Storytelling and pacing seem pretty dope, and the spooky visuals--even if they still don't click with me--are legitimately disturbing. This goes in the 'actually want to read' bookmark folder, as opposed to the 'should probably read before complaining about something that gets fixed' one.
