Synopsis: His sense of purpose renewed, Rikard takes the fight to both Groa and Beraâ€¦ but he will not face the fury of the witches alone. Raising an army of fierce warriors, Rikard marches against a demonic horde. But can even the mightiest of human warriors stand against such ungodly might? Find out in a mass battle unlike anything that has been depicted in comics before!
Our Thoughts: Like Horror? Like Lord of the Rings? Then â€œHelheimâ€ is right up your alley.
Cullen Bunn writes yet another top notch story as we are treated to issue four of â€œHelheim.â€ Joelle Jones gives you actual chills as you can almost feel the cold from the icy battlefield resonate off the pages. What really stands out about this issue is the action packed story. The intense battle between the witches, and Helheim in the middle fighting evil from all sides, draws the reader into the vortex of nonstop chaos. These battles feature, not only characters, but also creatures of grotesque proportions. Jones does an excellent of job creating these sinister looking beings.
Creating a comic about witches that will appeal to true horror fans is not an easy task. Bunn and Jones together do a stand out job of achieving this task. Thereâ€™s enough of a story, as well as gory action to satisfy any horror comic fan.
