Gianfranco Mancini

Storyline was essentially a confusing dream-like fantasy/horror take on John Carpenter's In the mouth of Madness.

I've never played the Bloodborne videogame so not sure at all about what the f@€% happened here, but I'm really digging into these series and this volume was an intense creepy and disturbing nightmare.

Loved it.

What just happened? Well, the answer is: a deep path and decay into madness. A dream inside a dream inside a dream. A distortion of reality and truth.

This volume tells a curious (and confusing, but that is the point) story, where you have no idea what is happening. You just know not everything is what it looks, that is something behind it. And well, that mysterious way of portray reality is one of Bloodborne's charm. A dream. A nightmare. A reality. Who knows in what of those we live?

(Zero spoiler review) See my previous Bloodborne reviews for additional context.
No, No No! This is not how you do it! This is not how you close out the series! This is not how you write a Bloodborne comic! You'll have to forgive my excessive punctuation, but I'm pretty annoyed right now. The series had somewhat captivated my up to this point. The near masterpiece of volume two surrounded on either side by competent yet flawed renditions. I stated at the end of my last review, that is the series

Quarto e ultimo capitolo della serie ispirata a Bloodborne, ma sinceramente non so cosa pensarne. Dal punto di vista grafico è impeccabile, le tavole e i colori sono meravigliosi, ed è evidente l'impegno che c'è stato dietro un progetto simile. Ma dal punto di vista della trama con quest'ultimo volume le cose si complicano, e non poco.
L'intento era probabilmente quello di confondere e distorcere la realtà, facendo collassare i quattro capitoli all'interno di un grande incubo, spingendo il letto

The story tries to be Lovecraftian, touching upon the themes of sanity and madness which sounds compelling and most definitely appropriate for the franchise, however, it's told in such a bizarre way that it almost becomes incomprehensible. The writer used the stream of consciousness format that can be difficult to keep up with. And to top that, they intentionally removed punctuation to, I guess, make the character's issues more believable but the only thing it actually did, at least for me, was ...more

While I haven't technically read this collected publication (it's the individual issues I have read), I just like how it's neater to just sum it up in this edition.

Anyway, onto it.

It remains to be one of the stronger arcs in this exploration of the Bloodborne universe, (although not the strongest) and the decent into madness and it's twisting and layered approach is interesting but I still think far from fully realised. There are some really fun concepts touched on within these issues but lacks
