Review: Acursian Chapter 18
It’s always fun to watch our protagonists get taught a lesson. As you get engrossed in their story you also get to see their flaws. Their flaws are what usually get us to identify with the character more. We can be assured of their eventual fall and rise due to them.
Their fall is what reminds us that failure and contrarians are a part of life. That makes the rise so much more rewarding. It reminds the reader they can overcome just about anything. Such is life and what makes everything worthwhile. In Acursian Chapter 18, we find Charlie getting his “just desserts”.
We find Charlie in the Witches Realm, where they have temporarily turned him into a pig, as they decide thet want inject some humility into him before striking a deal. Charlie is then transported back to Chicago, where Corra and Nate , where they have to find the orb before any more dead bodies surface. We are also taken to 1560 Clare Island, where Bregon is conspiring with Grace, on how to steal power from his sisters . By issue’s end, Bregon travels to modern day Milwaukee and kidnaps Rory.
Overall, Acursian Chapter 18 is an action-packed entry in the series that raises the stakes. The story by John Barrowman, Carole Barrowman, and Erika Lewis is satisfying. The art by Beni Lobel and Tommy Lee Edwards is astounding. Altogether, the story adds a bit of action to the series.
