Review -The Me You Love in the Dark #2

Issue #2

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.
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. Fans of STEPHEN KING and NEIL GAIMAN will enjoy this beautiful, dark, and disturbing story of discovery, love, and terror.

Writer: Skottie Young

After the shocking finale of Issue 1 which saw Ro find out about the entity in her house, we pick immediately afterwards in this issue. The entity is worried that Ro is not adjusting well to the news that she is sharing the house with something. They chat and it confirms it’s not a ghost but is happy of Ro wants to call it a ghost.

In her room, Ro is worried it has been spying on her while sleeping or bathing even though the entity promised it wouldn’t and spends the night asleep behind the door. The next morning though, she’s feeling more herself and she and the entity have a chat about why she’s moved there and the Entity offers to help her.

Young’s sad but refreshing tale brings a new dimension to the classic haunted house genre, with a lovable entity that seems to care for and respect Ro and help her. But what are its secrets and can she really trust it?

Review -The Me You Love in the Dark #2

Artist: Jorge Corona

Corona’s stunning artwork shines through Young’s deliberately minimalist script. The house becomes the third character in the book, with sweeping staircases and grandiose but empty rooms making Ro feel smaller on every panel. The colouring by Beaulieu creates a relaxing palette for the artwork.

Overall Thoughts

In a book with only two characters, every panel and word needs to counts as the reader is fully reliant on them to engage in the story. This poignant but somehow sad tale is setting itself up as a slow burner that reviewers and readers are delighted with

T'was a cold dark night in East Kilbride... and below the roundabouts, something old and ancient began to shudder awake. The world would rue the day that it gave the Green Jaguar comics to read!
