The story by Corinna Sara Bechko is fast paced and keeps you guessing. The art by Gabriel Hardman is amazing. Black and white, beautiful ink brushwork, with some zipatones for the gray areas.
I just happened to read this book after reading Eerie Archives volume 1, and this story seemed like a throwback to black and white comics of the fifties and sixties. Those were all short stories so the fact that I finished this in one sitting seemed fitting. Also, in the old stories, the art was always stronger than the stories, which is the case here. There are some pages that you can stop and stare at and completely forget what you were reading.
Heathentown isn't the story that's going to revolutionize horror comics, but it's a good read, and at only $9.99 for a standard 6.5" by 10"-ish comic it's worth the price.
The story itself is pretty offbeat, it's unpredictable and fast paced and the atmosphere is eerie. The cast, while small, are likable and relatable, particularly the lead, who is much more dynamic than she appears. That said, I wish it was longer, took a little more time to flesh out the back story on what was happening and the relationship between the town and the weird pseudo-zombies. Maybe explain why they do what they do, I feel like you only get a glimpse.
Aside from that, this book has something to offer someone who likes small self-contained stories that kick into gear quickly and don't slow down with moody intense art and some slick characterization. Refreshing break from superhero books.
I picked it up used at a sweet deal, increasing the value to me, but it's worth the original cover price.

This story is deliciously dark and morbid! A fantastic supernatural story set in Florida! If you're interested in a good ghost story, this is a definite buy!Published on November 6, 2013 by Andre R. Frattino
I was completely swept away by this story, which like the best illustrated novels was told as much through beautifully illustrated action as words. Read morePublished on May 27, 2011 by Joanna Wright
