COURTNEY CRUMRIN VOLUME SIX: THE FINAL SPELL

Written and Drawn by Ted Naifeh
Colored by Warren Wucinich

On the run from the Coven with her former teacher Calpurnia, Courtney Crumrin is quickly learning just how sinister the witches and warlocks of Hillsborough can be–but she never thought she’d see the day when Uncle Aloysius turned on her as well. It’s a lot harder to fight a battle when the only family you care about is against you, and Courtney’s only salvation may lie in the Twilight Kingdom–and away from the mortal world. But Aloysius won’t give up his niece so easily–even if he has to fight the night creatures to do it.

Review: The Bunker #5

THE BUNKER #5Battle lines are being drawn, as Grady begins his ascent, and truth of his actions hits the other friends. But, can they confront him and change his path?

For four issues into The Bunker, and I’ve wondered quite a few things, some of which begins to be answered here. And that’s part of what makes The Bunker so engrossing, that slow reveal that forces us to piece things together. But, writer Joshua Hale Fialkov knows that if you give too little, it leaves readers frustrated, so with each issue he drops just enough of a nugget to satisfy us. And those reveals often challenge our perceptions or what we thought of something.

Fialkov is joined by artist Joe Infurnari whose style fits the tone and vibe of the series, especially the gritty future, that we get to see a little bit more of in this issue. It’s a fantastic match of writer and artist.

The issue has future Grady sitting down to chat with his friends in the past, and at the same time we’re given some insight into the time travel device itself. Again though, the most interesting thing is all those interactions and how everyone deals with various situations and revelations. The time travel mechanism is just a device about the human story of it all. But, Fialkov has some fun with that mechanism too, playing with what knowledge folks would have, and some debate on the mechanics of time travel itself.

And even after you get through all of that, the end has a hell of a twist that again makes you rethink everyone’s motivation, and what’s really going on. Fialkov as usual pulls off a masterful issue that only makes you want to come back for more.
