The art is sparse, black and white, with some panels appearing as mere sketches - but never at the expense of the story, and giving it the feel of another horror story set on a farm - Night of the Living Dead. Hobbs does an excellent job of creating distinct characters that you instantly identify with - all struggling to make their case on why the gruff Mr. Shrader should allow them to take refuge on his farm (there's limited space, after all). Adding another layer of suspense is the arrival of a mysterious wanderer, Marvin, who may-or-may-not be a murderer. We also take brief interludes to check in on Welles in New York, where the police and the producers debate on whether to cancel the ruse over public safety concerns.
I am purposely keeping the plot details vague, because half of the fun of this work is going along with the twists Hobbs interjects. This is a fun story, with Tuazon nailing the creepy landscape of rural Halloween. I wish I could paste the first page in this review, because those four panels leave little doubt this will be a fun Halloween throwback.
I've read The Broadcast twice over, and recommended it to my local comic shop (it sold out in a week). I plan on making it a new Halloween tradition.
Give this one a try - you won't be disappointed.
