The Faceless: A Terry Sharp Story

Terry Sharp is a British director who makes celebrated horror films for an underappreciative schlock studio. If Terry understands horror, it’s because his off-the-clock adventures are on the trail of cultists and demons (or more often, fleeing their pursuit).

Wonderful art from Neil Vokes and Adrian Salmon that looks straight out of the opening credits to Batman: The Animated Series and peppy dialogue from the mouths of a charismatic cast doesn’t change the fact that this 52-page story (plus bonus material) essentially ends at the finale of Act 1. It’s a bit of a downer, the story concluding just as we feel all the elements are laid down to have our adventure.

Presumably the tale continues in “Yellow,” the next installment of Terry’s exploits, but that’s no consolation to the reader that dropped $7 on the initial venture.
