Read full description of the books:
When I knew there was a new issue of Survivors’ Club ready to be read, I’ll admit, I was equally excited and scared to start it. I’m still a newbie in horror comic genre and all the stories told through the medium, even though I really love slasher movies and things of this nature.
Blurb: Stab, you’re it! Trapped in the Muskagee house, the Survivors play a deadly game of hide and seek with the murderous Mr. Empty. To survive, they’ll have to work together. But within the dark and twisted interior of this monstrous house nothing is what it seems…including allegiances.
I won’t lie; it’s still hard to read something as raw and harsh as this comic. Lots of blood and uncensored scenes in throughout the book, maybe even more than in the past issue, but I admit I really liked this one. It’s enchanting in a that twisted, weird kind of way.
Dale Harvosen as a writer is really good working with a lot of different characters in this book. They each have common points that tie each story together in some fashion, but the differences are crystal clear. Each included story really does stand on its own while being part of a greater whole.
It still surprises me how involved all these stories are with so many issues and problems, with strong and distinct characters, and how colorful the plot is. With so many things happening at the same time, seeing everything come together in the end was a real treat.
My favorites, so far, are the two Alices’ and Mr. Emty. They are consistent, well made, seem logical enough for me to follow. There is a good structure to them and I’m really invested in them as characters and that makes me really want to continue to read about their future exploits.
If I had to choose my favorite part, it would really have to be the sections with the Alices. They are dynamic, well made, and those two full pages work perfectly well together. The script got a little messy at times, but graphicly it was great and probably the best art in the book.
The art in general however, is still a little bit of a problem for me, mostly because of the coloring and the excess of black in some pages. The art is something I got used to, but the style is really hard to break down. It’s good, but its more preference thing, so many will like what its doing.
As I said about the past issue, this issue is also very simple. This simplicity helps soften the hardcore story that we are presented. The art is not as detailed as I’d like, but it’s consistent throughout the book. Every page flows really well and the art style (for what it’s worth) really sticks to its guns, which is something i really like.
The overall pace of the book works well too. It’s really slow and suspenseful in some sections, and fast and full of action in the others. It’s a very risky duality I think could have been a little better executed, but I liked it even if I felt there was something missing. I can’t put my finger on it, but it felt like the book was holding something from me.
Survivors’ Club has been a fun ride so far and I’m beginning to really enjoy the wait between issues. As someone who has never been exposed to these graphic style comics, its been really worth the read. I recommend everyone at least give this series a shot as it may really surprise you.
Needless to say I still have high expectations for the next issue!
