This was the best of the series so far. Much more grounded and human than the last one, and people are worth caring about now. The Gray Man himself was creepy but interesting.

My one complaint is all the untranslated Portuguese, but you could get by without the translations anyway.

Again, reading this in actual comic form (issues 11-14).

The introduction of The Gray Man was interesting. I like him as a character, and really enjoyed the concept of Lucifer and her relationship with The Harlot. Coming back to "the knife" was a good way to remind us that it was still around. The only reason this got 4 stars instead of 5 was that The Gray Man spoke exclusively in Portugese and no translation was provided. This breaks with the use of a translation for non-English lines that they

I'm really impressed - for a series I really didn't want to like (whether because of it's intro dropping us in the middle of the weirdness, or because of the different style of storytelling than I'm used to), I'm quite enjoying it by this point

It helps that this arc focuses on the unwilling (and unwitting) humans - made it possible to ease into the growing horror and inevitable dread that the fearless evil ones are so artfully bringing about. It sure isn't letting up, but at least I can see the

By far the best volume. A mysterious Brazilian girl arrived in Arkham and murders with links connected to the girl occurred at the same time. The sheriff and the girl-Lucifer must work together to bring down the Gray Man.

It was really fun, I enjoyed the genre blending of horror with mystery.

Supernatural horror meets police procedural, and the best volume yet of the Fall of Cthulhu series. In addition to propelling the narrative of the entire series, this is also a cohesive single story, rather than an assemblage of smaller vignettes.

I felt vol. 2 took too much of a turn away from advancing the story(ies?) but vol. 3 really picked up the pace. This was on par with vol. 1 -- awesome, perfect Lovecraftian horror comic!

Better than the last book, except they made the Dreamlands look too realistic, which lessens some of the impact. Still, just not enough to grab me.

Very good entry, this one more connected to the first book. Same artist throughout the book, great art. Recommended for Lovecraft and/or horror fans.

This series is a nice little Lovecraft jaunt, utilizing the mythos but tweaking things enough to make it fresh. Lovecraft transfers to comics surprisingly well.
