Abe Sapien #16 Review 

Writer: Mike Mignola, Scott Allie

Artist: Sebastian Fiumara

Publisher: Dark Horse

Release Date: September 10, 2014

Rating: 8 out of 10

Synopsis: Abe returns to the place where Fenix shot him, and things get worse when a mysterious gas begins to leak from the ground. Pursued by a crew sent to bring him down, he runs into two different apocalypse cults, one of which worships Abe!

Our Thoughts:  Well comic fans, once again Mignola and Allie pull it off.  As always, Abe Sapien #16 is nonstop action combined with great story telling. Issue #16 shows the different aspects of what apocalyptic situations can bring out in humanity, from the evil, to the bizarre, to a group worshiping Abe.  Sebastian Fiumara’s artwork is bloody awesome.  He is not only able to keep up with the turmoil, but embellish it just the right amount.  All I can say is Abe versus wolf pack…

Mignola and Allie have done a masterful job at keeping the balance of a precise amount of turmoil mixed with a weighty and engrossing plotline.  This is what has made the Abe Sapien series without question, one of the best of this last year.  Abe Sapien #16 out September 10th.
