Eldritch! #2: Because 343 Needle-Toothed Imps Would Be Excessive

Eldritch! #2

So the second issue of Eldritch!, the utterly mad comic from Drew Rausch and Aaron Alexovich has wound up on my screen. If you’ve checked out our write-up of the first issue, you might remember that our heroine, Anya, is trying to figure out what has turned her brother Owen from her brother Owen into a…well, black goo-and-demon-infused thing.

And in flashbacks, we get some history as to how the mythology came about and the particular manic disposition of its head priest, Chaston. So what are the engines that drive this descent into madness? There’s guys and girls and brothers and sister involved–what do you think it is?

Anyway, the setup of the first issue begins to play out here and what began as disturbing with a tinge of hilarity turns itself on its head and becomes laugh-out-loud genius laced with bile.
