After missing the funeral of her estranged mother, Kat and her daughter, Sybil, hope to fit into the quaint town of Comfort Notch. But the town’s obscure history and strange customs make it a struggle, leading to a shocking confrontation.
I have never been so anxious watching characters interact with leaves in my entire life.
Issue two of The Autumnal is here! And with it, a full dose of spooky that we all need just before the most glorious day of the year: Halloween.
The tension is so elegantly crafted in this series. Without any understanding to why the leaves are bad, we instinctively feel anxious about their existence, and the interactions characters have with them. Something is making the people of the town nervous, and the readers are nervous because of it.
Chris Shehan and Jason Wordie really bring the autumn feeling to life, perfectly captured. And the subtle, creepy imagery is super effective. Everything is stunning and adds to the unease the story gives off as a whole.
Don’t miss issue two! Trust me. I’m still hunting for a physical copy of issue one.
