This book was absolutely incredible. A superb piece of psychological horror that takes the reader from reality to the pits of Hell and then back again (and then back again). This may be one of the most disturbing comicbooks I've ever read. I have a feeling it's going to linger in my subconscious fo

I judged this book by its cover and did not get the story I'd expected which turned out to be a good thing. This isn't really a horror comic, it's more a look at psychological trauma and how it manifests in the physical world. It's actually a terribly sad story about Sarah Winchester and the reason s Leggi tutto
When I started this comic I had no idea about the supposed curse on the Winchester house or Sarah Winchester. I started looking up the legend(s) while reading the comic and it is indeed a fascinating story (the true bits as well as the lore that got added). The story goes that Sarah Winchester lost f Leggi tutto
The Fall of the House of Winchester. Loosely based on stories of the actual Winchester mansion, this tale is the story of Sarah, heiress to the Winchester fortune.
