The Approach‘s debut issue is exactly what you would want in a horror series. A great start giving the series a ground floor to build from as the story progresses.
Hitting shelves at your local comic book shop on October 12, The Approach #1 is for comic book fans and horror fans alike.
From writers Jeremy Haun (The Red Mother) and Jason A. Hurley (The Beauty) and artist Jesus Hervás (The Empty Man), a storm is coming that’s bringing more than bad weather. When airport employees Mac and Abigail find themselves snowed in after a blizzard, they witness a terrible plane crash.
After pulling a survivor from the wreckage, they realize a terrifying truth: this plane has been missing for 27 years!
The nightmare has only just begun though, as the people trapped in the airport soon find themselves confronted by what this plane actually brought back…. For those with a fear of flying… it’s not the sky that deserves dread, but what lies beyond it…
Haun and Hurley put together a book that could be seen as a slow start, but actually has great pacing to give you some background on getting the story moving. Easy-to-read story that allows you to follow along without getting lost. The characters are the exact ones you expect to fall in love with as the story progresses.
Artist Hervás gives you clean, yet gritty, illustrations which give this horror book depth and feel. As someone who lives in the Northeast, the snowy overlay gives you the real feeling of snow falling from the skies and the chills that accompany colder weather and horror books.
The Approach gives you such a stellar ending to allow you to feel the first issue accomplished something, but leaves you wanting more answers and a reason to purchase the next issue of the series.
This Boom! Studios’ series is one that I had been looking forward to for awhile and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The series has much promise and could become a fan-favorite over the next few issues. With the second issue of The Approach coming to your LCS on November 30, 2022, it gives real hope for the series to wind up on our Best Comic Books of 2022 list come December.
