Yowza was this disturbing. This is definitely not for the light of heart, easily disturbed, delicate constitution type of person. Its DEFINITELY not for younger teens.
The artwork is gorgeous and vibrant, even when you wouldn't want it to be. The expressions of the characters are so intense, you can almost feel their agony. In some scenes the images are so detailed its almost a little overwhelming.
Upon reading it, I didn't realize that it was the ninth volume, but it really does stand alone as a great comic. Its so intense in every aspect.
The story is terrifying. After World War 2 is over the military is going through Nazi warehouses and other buildings and they begin finding things that are more than just disturbing... its mind boggling and bizarre. They begin finding things that were used for satanic rituals, as well as other paranormal kinds of things. While this is just a work of fiction, there is enough historical accuracy in it that it makes you think about how these poor people must have suffered and how could other humans make them suffer so.
