Bone Parish #10, BOOM! Studios

Full of intense imagery and vivid characters, Bone Parish #10 (BOOM! Studios) dives into brutal surrealism in this solid installment of the supernatural thriller. Truly one of the best titles to have come out of 2018, Bone Parish succeeds thanks to its well-developed ensemble of compelling characters. 

With the walls closing in and their supporters dwindling, it’ll take everything the Winters family has to make it through the war. It’s no longer about the supply, the ash, or the money. Now, they fight to survive.

Here are 5 reasons why you should get Bone Parish #10:

5) What Happened Before!

Since the first issue, the new drug that everybody is talking about is made from the ashes of humans! The ashes take the addicted users to new hallucinatory heights. Now imagine someone experimenting on this kind of drug and taking its adverse effects to a whole other level.

4) The Writing!

Writer Cullen Bunn dives into the mind of Leon, allowing the readers to understand his motivations. Walking between the line of the living and the dead, Leon discovers what his heart has been looking for. Letterer Ed Dukeshire captures the urgency of the moment and bolds certain words as Leon deals with his subconsciousness.

3) The Artwork!

Artist Jonas Scharf does a fantastic job capturing the paranoia within Leon as he sinks deeper into his mind. Notice how the religious symbolism stands out, especially with the burning bush in the background. Then there’s the horrifying imagery, like organs sewing out of a dead body,  that Scharf illustrates in graphic detail. 

2) The Colors!

Colorist Alex Gumaraes ramps up the hellish landscape in Leon’s mind with vivid tones. Notice how the hallucinatory images is painted in red. The colors then turn from red to purple when the next scene turns sexual.

1) Horror & Crime!

As the story takes shocking twists and turns, Bone Parish #10 brings out the best in horror and crime! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
