Fialkov paces the way the story evolves and takes shape so that it keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what is really happening.

Rahsan Ekedal's manic detail work perfectly complements the text.

Format: Hardcover
His father's dying words - the first clearly spoken in some time thanks to Alzheimer's - lead Brian to an abandoned house and underneath it to a basement filled with human bones and a box that will change his life forever.

The box Brian finds holds tiny dolls made up of the shaved bone and skin of young girls who have been killed by an as yet undiscovered serial killer. The revelation of the box and his father's dying words directing him to find the box and turn it in to the authorities pushes Brian down a rabbit hole of doubt, worry and dementia himself - without his medication every two hours, Brian suffers from a disorder which causes hallucinations. Brian's dementia only serves to confuse and disorient the reader more and more as we follow him along from the death of his father to the discovery of the box.

The dark, moody all black and white artwork by Rahsan Ekedal serves to add depth and creepiness to the book. Not that the story needs it. Echoes is a dark and devious book that will hook you from the start. Highly recommended for fans of horror, suspense and graphic novel enthusiasts.

That was the first thing that came to my mind after I finished this book. I went to the comic book store and asked the clerk that had recommended me this title, if this was a first part of something bigger. I was shocked with the answer when the clerk said, "I know right?" And later added, NO, unfortunately, that is it.

I guess what Im trying to say is, the book is great, I loved the story, great writing and awesome art... But the ending... oh God the ending. I honestly thought that the writer had ran out of money or something... Anyways, I will definitely look for the writer's next book.

Before he started the reboot of I, VAMPIRE for DC's New 52, I had never even heard of Joshua Hale Fialkov. That book has been one of the consistently great titles of the New 52 rollout defying all expectations, and his other recent project at Image Comics, the woefully underrated and under-read THE LAST OF THE GREATS, came out around the same time and suddenly all of the works of Fialkov were on my radar. I dug around my local comic shop for his Top Cow "Pilot" issues, like the terrific ALIBI and his most recent one, THE TEST. I then got the amazingly suspenseful work ELK'S RUN, and am currently waiting on his book TUMOR in the mail. But just recently, I got ECHOES, and with all of the great work that I've read by Fialkov since August of 2011, ECHOES may very well be his best work to date and one of the most disturbing comics I've ever read.

The story begins with Brian Cohn, a seemingly ordinary man with a loving wife and a baby on the way. As the book opens, we are met with a disjointed narrative from Cohn himself seemingly in three different places: The future, the present, and the past. Where the book really kicks off the story, though is Brian visiting his father in the hospital. His father, dying of Alzheimer's, is also a schizophrenic, a trait he has sadly passed down to his son. Brian manages his schizophrenia with meds and a friendly psychiatrist and he's able to be there for his father as he begins to shuffle off his mortal coil. As his father dies, though, he has time for something of a deathbed confession of a terrible but mysterious secret that leads Brian to investigate a mostly abandoned house. As Brian investigates, he starts to see things in the dark due to his schizophrenia.

Brian Cohn has been having his ups and down. His father is dying while his wife is about to give birth to their first child. He also is a diagnosed schizophrenic who has been recovering but must remember to take his medications. Things should be getting better but they are about to spiral out of control. A deathbed confession of atrocities from his father sends Brian on a quest to find out what has happened and what his father has done. Writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Rahsan Ekedal tell Brian's maddening story in the graphic novel Echoes from publisher Top Cow Productions.

Set in a small town in Pennsylvania where Brian has lived his entire life, he remembers when he was a child and his father said to him, "You know what's scary, Brian? People are scary." Brian has discovered the remains of many girls buried underneath a house with a box of dolls made out of their remains. His schizophrenia gets the better of him. Without his medicine he has trouble focusing on reality. He ends up at a playground where he sees a young girl. He gets sick and drives away. Seemingly his life is returning to normal when a police officer delivers the news of the same girl's disappearance and a new doll has been made.

Brian is real. You know him as your neighbor, as the guy who you pass through the office going to and from work. There is nothing different about him. He is someone who has lost his father and is about to have his first son. He has all of his worries and fears for us to see that make him so real.

Fialkov carefully crafts the descent into madness. The leaps and assumptions made by Brian when he discovers his father's confession are plausible and completely within reason even for someone who is not schizophrenic.
