Format:FC, 32 pages
It’s said that everyone has an evil twin—and in Emmy’s case that may be true! But if Kammi is evil, she’s also charming, clever, and sweet, and she could lure Emmy down a dark and dangerous path—one that leads ever closer to fulfilling the legacy of the long-dead witch Hester Beck!“Harrow County is worth checking out if you’re a horror-comic fan!”—Clive Barker

“One of the most haunting comics to come out in a while.”—IGN

Once again I returned to Harrow County is Issue 6. If any comic is perfect for October, month of Halloween, this one is. In this issue, Emmy gets to know her twin sister, Kammi, from the city. Her long-time friend, Bernice is with them, as the two talk about the city and the farm. A storm is crashing all about the farm, appearing to not move. As if listening too. Emmy’s father tells Kammi’s butler to sit, but the man neither does so, nor speak. Creepy. Hours later in the night, Kammi awakes Emmy and she leads her out to the tree where Hester the witch had been killed. Unlike Emmy who doesn’t care to know about Hester or if she is buried there, Kammi wants to know. To me Kammi is not at all like Emmy, and later in the tale, I get the inkling what she is about.

There is another “Tales of Harrow County” included in this issue. A flash fiction piece of a man deer hunting, but he learns that the deer he shots is not a normal animal….

Harrow County is Halloween creepy, worthy of being a descendent of those spooky stories around the campfire and hearth.

5 “Halloween Worthy” stars.
