My biggest beef is really that his best friend would just kind of tag alone with the murder-ride, but I am going to cut slack in this area and I will explain why. Molly is Adrian's only friend and an artist, who is channeling or has some kind of connection overall. What, exactly? Well, hell...I don't know and I really hope we find out. The second reason is that she seems to be able to take care of herself and I like that writers did a good job with making her non-stereotypical.
The art seemed to grow a bit between the first issue and last within this volume. I am not sure if it was the escalation of dark imagery in the story or just growth within the artist, but by the middle of this volume I really started to become aware of the unique detailing in certain aspects. This really focused the art and story at key moments. The stone feel with soft colors really is a unique and beautiful combination and complimented the story.
All in all this first volume of Regression is entertaining and left me hungering for more. If you are a fan of horror comics, Regression is certainly one you need to check out!
Adrian Padilla has some pretty terrifying, oft times erotic, hallucinations and nightmares on a daily basis and is pushed to get help by his friend, Molly. After undergoing some life regression hypnotherapy, things become much worse and something from a lifetime before has come back with him. Though Adrian looks normal to the naked eye, this creature manifests itself in the blink of an eye and works its own agenda through Adrian’s body.
I have read a decent bit of Bunn’s works (Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, The Living Deadpool, Deadpool Killogy, and Harrow County, to name a few) and you can say that I am a pretty big fan of his work. The writing is pretty easy to follow and the story leaves just enough intrigue to keep you turning the pages. The artwork is well done as far as characters/environments go, but the horror that is Adrian’s hallucinations (all sorts of disgusting, insect covered/filled body images) is what really stood out.
All in all, I am interested to see where the story goes from here and look forward to the next issues. Bunn always brings it with original material and I never know what he will do next.
Moreover, the art is awful. The line-work is so weak and hesitant that it felt like I could just brush it off the page. The characters' facial expressions are so heavily photo-referenced that, ironically, it looks unreal. I'd never heard of this artist, but I don't know how he's working professionally.
This is a weak book that doesn't deliver on what sounded like it could be a very original premise.
