Are y’all ready to talk about the first book of this series that my daughter just could not finish? Are you ready to talk about what is the darkest, bloodiest, creepiest issue we have seen in this “kiddie book”? Okay, then buckle up, cause it is time to ignite Inferno!
Usually I go for a funny series of non-sequiturs or stream of conscience thoughts on the pictures, but we have to take some time to appreciate how Jon Bogdonove and Glynis Oliver just kill this book. They convey the feelings, the smell, the air and the despair with such detail.
We get to see every bit of suffering and torment that is inflicted on the family, not only by the city, but by the Boogeyman.
The disgust and filth, and the families reaction to it all is palpable. You can feel the slime and disgust pouring off the pages. And we get a literal hell on Earth, courtesy of some demons.
We also get to see the final form of Carmody, the Boogeyman. This pathetic former boss of James Power has finally been given his wish, to have the power to crush his nemeses.
He receives this power by sacrificing the only thing he had, his humanity. And it is torn away from him with out his consent.
Do you get how dark this issue is….do you!!!!? Okay then…..now that I have made my point, I will leave you with one moment of levity. Alex falling out of a bed. Laugh…laugh at his misery!
