While horror and ghost stories are more common in today’s comic books, Haunt You To The End #1 from Image Comics is a debut that sets itself apart from other comics. Written by Ryan Cady (Old Man Logan Annual, Adventure Time Comics) and featuring artwork from Andrea Mutti (Bunny Mask, A Legacy of Violence), Haunt You To The End is a horror comic that blends ghost hunting with post-apocalyptic vibes.
The world of Haunt You To The End is not a happy one. The setting is a not-so-distant future where climate disasters and global instability have become the norm. In this bleak landscape, an eccentric billionaire, along with his team, sets out to prove the existence of life after death. The team consists of a disgraced journalist, a radical doctor, a TV demonologist, and a squad of hardened military contractors. Their mission takes them to the “most haunted place on earth,” but their findings may not be what the world was hoping for.
While the first issue doesn’t give away too much of the future of the story, it serves as a great foundation. It leaves readers wanting to know more, making them impatiently wait for the next issue. The promise of uncovering the truth behind the existence of ghosts in a post-apocalyptic world has got readers excited, and the comic delivers on those promises.
The artwork for Haunt You To The End is spot on, adding to the immersive and engaging storytelling. Mutti’s use of gritty lines and muted colors fits the horror and post-apocalyptic feel of the story perfectly. The artwork gives the reader an uneasy feeling that fits in with the overall tone of the comic.
The immersive storytelling and artwork bring the story to life, creating a bleak but fascinating world. The post-apocalyptic setting also adds a feeling of dread and unease, making it an excellent choice for horror comics fans. Cady’s writing coupled with Andrea Mutti’s artwork has created a unique and terrifying world, with characters that are easy to identify with.
Overall, Haunt You To The End is going to be added to our pull list for sure.
