Review: Basilisk #1

Writer: Cullen Bunn
Illustrator: Jonas Scharf
Colorist: Alex Guimarāes
Letterer: Ed Dukeshire

Five individuals bound by a cult-like hivemind, they terrorized small towns with their horrifying supernatural sense-based powers, leaving death and destruction in their wake.

Regan, one of the Chimera, escaped and has been in hiding, with her murderous eyes bound, overcome with guilt.

Until now… when a victim from her past forces her to hunt down the other four of her kind.

New York Times bestselling horror writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County) and artist Jonas Scharf (Avengers Of The Wasteland) reunite to unleash a supernatural horror series for fans of Killadelphia and Stillwater rooted in the way we process the world – our senses.”

You had me at “cult-like hivemind” – because if you guys have been around any period of time, you know cult stuff is my thing.

This series is starting out strong with some excellent story potential. I really enjoyed the set up and execution. The characters are intriguing and keep you wanting to learn more about them and their situation without giving too much away to the mystery.

The art is fantastic. I love the character designs, uses of power, and everything about it. The colors really bring it all to life and are absolutely beautiful. The lettering is great, as always with Ed Dukeshire.
