Review: Straitjacket TPB

Straitjacket cover

Enter into the world of Alexandra Wagner. She murdered her brother when she was child. She was institutionalized. Alex believes she protected of our world against “The Outer Darkness” with the help of her brother in the Otherside. Obviously, these are just deliriums, But, how… and why… she vanishes from the institution only to reappear later?

If Frank Miller wrote Alice in Wonderland, with help from John Carpenter, you would get Straitjacket. Except, instead of a staple of children’s literature, you get something much more twisted, and much more gory. Now this book is for mature readers, so if you frighten easily or, don’t like violence this book isn’t for you. However it you want something with good writing (El Torres is on writing duty), and at times an intricate plot, you should enjoy this insane tale.

The art by Guillermo Sanna is consistent, even if it isn’t the most colorful. Yet that minimal color works in its favor, as the chosen three color-scheme creates an atmosphere like no other. The design of the “feeders,” is creepy, in a great way.
