Comic Review: The Me You Love in the Dark issues #2 and #3 (Image Comics)

Writer SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool, Strange Academy) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Super Sons, Feathers) follow up their critically acclaimed series MIDDLEWEST with a brand-new haunting tale. An artist named Ro retreats from the grind of the city to an old house in a small town to find solace and inspiration without realizing the muse within is not what she expected. Fans of Stephen King and Neil Gaiman will enjoy this beautiful, dark, and disturbing story of discovery, love, and terror.

Artist Ro, hiding out in an old house, hoping for artistic lightning to strike, begins to feel even more strongly connected with the shadowy presence she’s been communicating with.

Ro becomes even more intimate with whoever, or whatever, is haunting the old house as she finds the spark of inspiration for her most personal paintings yet.

Issue #2 is about Ro and her new friend finally starting to talk. Her ghostly housemate is accommodating and follows her seems worried about scaring her off. But she does get inspired to paint. We finally get to see what it looks like. YIKES!

Issue #3 their dynamic begins to shift. The "ghost" inserts itself into Ro's life and they spend the next few months together. Ro's agent calls and there is talk of her leaving the house and going home. You get the feeling that might not go over well with her "friend." It makes a big romantic gesture and Ro decides to take their relationship to the next level! 
I'm looking forward to the direction this story will take. There are only two more issues. Will she stay? Will she try to get away? Will we find out what Ro's spectral friend is?

Grab the first three issues online or at a local comic book store.
