Review: Alabaster: The Good, the Bad, and the Bird #4
No sooner has Dancy been reunited with Maisie than she finds her lover violently wrested from her embrace! Now, as Maisie is held captive by a psychotic pair of gun-toting sisters, Dancy risks everything to save the woman she loves—even if it means dying . . . again.
Bang………..as a dog dies, but is only heard through a phone. Waking up, and realizing your all alone in your, rundown motel with a talking raven. A scribbled note on the wall next to you, revealing a pair of gun-toting sisters have kidnapped your lover. All that happens to Dancy, but she finally learns why she was brought back to life.
The strange, creepy factor is defiantly kicked up a notch in the artwork. This issue is much more graphic, about the more occult role as things have nearly fully unfolded with only one issue remaining. Despite all the strangeness of the art, it is still superb.
