I like Dan Brereton and his Nocturnals, and I have rapidly fallen completely in love with Ted Naifeh, but The Gunwitch: Outskirts of Doom is a letdown from both perspectives.

Not necessarily a bad read for fans of either creator, but not particularly recommended either.

The art is great. The story was pretty good, I just hoped for more from the story. I loved the Nocturnals series but the stand alone gunwitch, just not as good.
