I am always in search of new and interesting comics to read for this challenge, it’s what keeps me going. Luckily Aftershock Comics has provided that for me in the form of the new horror comic A Walk Through Hell #1 which was written by Garth Ennis (Preacher) and illustrated by Goran Sudžuka (Hellblazer). Sometimes for an FBI agent or even a cop, there are cases that are going to haunt you in life maybe because of the way it went down or maybe in your mind you didn’t do enough so it haunts you. That is definitely the case with FBI Agent Shaw who is pushing the big 4-0 and just wants to handles the easy cases, but don’t say that to her partner. FBI Agent McGregor is significantly younger than Shaw which means hes very passionate and gung-ho about his job as if he feels that he can save the whole world. The only problem is that the next case may get to them mentally. You see they approach a warehouse only to find out that the police had already gone inside, but they quickly exited. What did they see inside the warehouse that spooked them that much? Well that is what Agent Shaw and McGregor are about to find out.
I have to be honest that I didn’t know what direction this comic was going to go in at first till I realized that Agent Shaw was having a nightmare about a case. This is definitely that classic story of the older FBI agent who has seen some messed up stuff and therefore just wants to coast it for the rest of her career until she gets placed with the younger agent who is all about saving the world. t wants to shut him up, but she gets them into a situation that they definitely never thought would come and they can’t get out of. At least moving forward that is what I can guess is going to happen because it’s a classic scenario that has been done. I am not taking anything away from them because I want to see exactly where they take this story in the upcoming issues. The artwork is pretty good, there was nothing that stood out in this issue as far as any action shots that grabbed me, but I am sure that is what we can look forward to. I am definitely going to be checking out more issues of this because I want to see where it goes. Check out my grades below:
