A good one, a quick one. Cool magic, violence, you get to see that Bill Gravel ain't all bad, and he really has more of a John Constantine-vibe in this one. Makes me psyched for the new on-going "Gravel" series. A real 3.5 star'er, as all the stoff I said about "Body Orchard" applies here, but this one is specifically enjoyable.
Slight little story, a little disturbing and pretty much over before it got into the good stuff.
