Quickie comic review: Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder: In the Service of Angels No. 3

Sir Edward Grey, Witchfinder: In the Service of Angels No. 3

Published by Dark Horse Comics. Written by Mike Mignola. Art by Ben Stenbeck.

The Deal: Write Mike Mignola (the creator of Hellboy) and artist Ben Stenbeck roll out the latest installment of their Witchfinder limited series, which follows the exploits of Victoria-era paranormal detective Sir Edward Grey.

The Verdict: I'm really enjoying this book. Grey is a hero in the vein of Solomon Kane — religious and stodgy but a man of action. The story is engrossing and filled with cool period touches and just enough supernatural elements to make it scary. On the art side of things, Stenbeck's work takes the best elements from Mignola's shadowy drawing style and mixes it with his own to come up with something that's unique but still able to work for the world of Hellboy.
