Review: Soulless #1 by Kim Roberts, Chris Royal, James Johnson, Chunlin Zhao, and Ken Reynolds

Soulless #1

Soulless #1 https://buff.ly/2A1ksHb is a 32-page, full color, mature, supernatural horror comic created and written by Kim Roberts, penciled by Chris Royal, inked by James Johnson, colored by Chunlin Zhao, and lettered by Ken Reynolds. Published by Swamp Line Comics.

A holy man turned demon hunter assisted by a spell casting sidekick set off on a journey through the desolate southwest in search of soul collectors! Their quest puts them on the trail of a traveling carnival full of demons and evil clowns turning sleepy towns into ghost towns in preparation to unleash a larger evil!

The premise behind Soulless is a unique take on the creepiness that surrounds traveling carnivals and the eerie things they leave in their wake! The story is told from the perspective of the main character and we discover the unfolding supernatural events as he and his assistant seek them out. The writing is fresh and opens the door to a new side of horror that is rarely explored. The art is clean and polished. The line work, colors, shadowing, composition, and lettering all combine to make Soulless #1 a visually dynamic and pleasing comic!

You can get your ticket to the carnival at https://buff.ly/2A1ksHb and find even more from Swamp Line Comics at http://www.swamplinecomics.com
