This short from Kelly and TKO has a simple premise, a town has rumours of a witch or brujas living at the edge of the river. As happens over the year the tales get taller and when local kids actually end up going missing near where she lives it’s time for a local mob to deal with her for the final time.
Emmet, the local sheriff, suddenly appears out of the would to try and disperse the crowd. But he then admits the grisly remains lead to close to the old woman and perhaps they should all go up. Kicking down the door of the houseboat the find Alonso’s daughter with the old woman, but what has happened?
Williams keeps the story and art tight, with only 22 pages to create a short but impactful story every line and panel counts. We all know the story of the scary old person in our village or town that is rumoured to be a witch or serial killer.
The art is perfect for the genre with bleached colours, courtesy of Pangburn that suit the brutal storyline.
Williams and Pangburn make a great creative team here for this horror short, I don’t care of you do guess the ending it’s well worth turning every page to get there.
