ANOTHER month, another instalment of what is rapidly becoming my favourite non-superhero title currently being published.
When we last left Detective Linda Caruso she was trying to talk down one of her friends from killing himself. Well, things go from worse to SHIT-BAD HORRIBLE this issue. People Linda cares about get hurt and killed left, right and centre this time round as shock after shock happens and the mystery of the prison murder deepens.
This is one dark rollercoaster we’re on, friends, courtesy of the masterful work of Arcudi. I, for one, do NOT want to get off the ride.
As always, Fejzula’s art is both gorgeously off-kilter and vaguely disturbing, like finding a dead mouse in the bottom of your sofa (true story – don’t ask). Or smelling something bad in your back room but you don’t know what it is or where it originates (that’s a future horror story, I’m sure – don’t ask).
Dead Inside is published by Dark Horse. Issue three goes on sale February 15.
