Review by: Rob Caprilozzi
Writer: Christophe Bec
Artist: Stefano Raffaele
Synopsis: Sarah Stevenson is running. Running from her traumatic childhood, her fractured relationship with her husband, and from herself. But where she runs to is Salamanca, a small rural Pennsylvania town where the locals are recovering from their own terrifying history. A history that refuses to lay hidden any longer. This spine-chilling and multi-layered horror story, from the creative team that brought you Pandemonium, contains more than one monster lurking in the shadows! Written by Christophe Bec, with artwork and a cover by Stefano Raffaele.
Our Thoughts: It’s not often that we come across an OGN that we just can’t put down. Luckily for us, Shadows of Salamanca was one of these books. With scares and bloodshed, this book delivered the goods.
Writer, Christophe Bec is no stranger when it comes to horror titles. He is the author behind the 2012 hit comic, Pandemonium. He returns to horror in a big way with this extraordinary graphic novel, Shadows of Salamanca. Although this graphic novel is a TON of pages, there is never a sense of lag from the author. In other words, the author keeps this amazing pacing throughout the entire book.
Christophe is joined again by artist extraordinaire, Stefano Raffaele. The duo teamed together to work on Pandemonium. Stefano’s artwork is quite a sight to behold as he has mastered the art of creepiness.
The quality of work that is put into this horror graphic novel is one that every fan needs to see. Overall, the Shadows of Salamanca is an amazing graphic novel. Look for this series to be well represented at the official Horror Comic Awards in December.
