Review: Home Sick Pilots #2

Home Sick Pilots #2

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it’s up to Ami to bring them back…whether they want to come home or not. Even when they’re really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. Home Sick Pilots #2 continues the intriguing horror series giving us a better idea as to what to expect going forward.

Picking up where the debut issue left off, Ami attempts to retrieve a lucky horseshoe in Home Sick Pilots #2. The horseshoe seems to have an agenda of its own not wanting to return to the house. The issue delivers a tragic tale of someone who has experienced nothing but good from the haunted horseshoe. What will her life be without it and does she want to return to that existence? Writer Dan Watters delivers a story that feels almost like a parable mixed with a little ghostbusting.

The issue hints a bit more as to what we can expect with the series. Its focus isn’t a missing Ami, presumably killed by the house. Instead, the house is using her to gather these items and ghosts, we assume. It’s a house with a mission and something on its mind apparently as it’s also not being clear with Ami as to what it’s done and what it wants.

The artwork by Caspar Wijngaard and letterer Aditya Bidikar continues to impress. The art delivers an intriguing visually intertwined narrative of Ami and her friends. We get the story around the Old James House which doesn’t seem as much of a horror story but that’s juxtaposed by the blood covering her friends as they attempt to figure out what to do. We also get a look at the ghost Ami captures in multiple ways and each is a fascinating design well worth examining.

Home Sick Pilots #2 moves the story along as well as delivering the backstory of Ami and her friends. It’s a solid horror story that feels like some classics in the genre. It’s not completely clear what’s going on but what has been presented is surely interesting and well worth checking out.

Review: Home Sick Pilots #1

Home Sick Pilots #1

I was not expecting that. That’s the main thought after reading Home Sick Pilots #1 an interesting ghost/horror debut. The first issue delivers some twists and turns and does it with a certain flair and style. It’s one of the more intriguing starts of the year.

Written by Dan Watters, Home Sick Pilots #1 centers around a punk band and its lead singer Ami and a haunted house. It’s 1984 and in its opening, a house strides across the suburban landscape like a wooden kaiju delivering restorative destruction. At its center is a woman who seems to be controling the constructed behemoth. It’s an unexpected start to the series teasing the reader with what’s to come and then delivering the steps of how we get there.

There’s a certain sense of style and cool about the world Watters has put together. The issue revolves around punk bands and their outsider status, a plot point that works and enhances the story. Like the house at the center of the story, the kids in these bands are broken a bit and rejected by society. The house and each character have much in common in how they’re perceived by society. They’re present and neither knows what to do with them.

Caspar Wijngaard‘s art brings a haunting eeriness to the series. Along with lettering from Aditya Bidikar, Home Sick Pilots #1 delivers a calm before its shocking moments drop. That calm helps to enhance and emphasize the crazy which is a literal house of horrors. Characters are murdered with almost glee widdling them down to a few to care about. It’s unexpected twists as to this point Watters’ story and dialogue had set up an interesting rivalry between groups making for an entertaining team-up. But, the house has a different direction to take it.

Home Sick Pilots #1 is a solid debut setting things up before pulling the rug out from under the reader. It takes us into a haunted house and delivers bodies without taking things over the top and making it about the gore. It focuses on the mystery of it all and like its victims, catches the reader off-guard. In what was expected to span out over a few issues, the body count is quick and swift hooking the reader and getting their attention. For those into horror and mystery, this is a debut to check out.
