"What if you could wish revenge on everyone who makes your life hell, and someone (or something) would do the dirty work for you? When bullied Deacon learns the dark past of his small town Texas high school, he discovers a vengeful ritual used to wreak havoc on his enemies - like the school's all-star quarterback. But when Deacon wakes up covered in someone else's blood, he realizes that the ritual was no childish game. And with every passing day the lines blur between the payback he envisioned and the revenge he's commiting."
Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
You better be careful reading this issue of Careful 2, because it will make your brain melt with joy. It has been a little while since the first issue came out, but I didn't really need a recap. Carungi and Smith did a fantastic job, including enough detail from the story so far in this issue. Their writing on this book is amazing. The dialogue is spot on from panel to panel, and the way they write the horror elements leaves this air of mystery and terror hanging above this readers head. The big spotlight though needs to be on the artwork. When I say GORE-Geous I am emphasizing the GORE in this one. The 2 scenes of dead bodies just gave me a bad case of jaw drop, I am seriously still trying to pick it up off the floor! The character designs are consistent throughout and I want to throw a special high-five to the lettering for its addition to the suspense found in this book. I can see a clear path to the end of this one, but I know it will not happen as I expect it too. This book takes horror, mystery and teen age life to a whole new level, and it better keeping heading up the stairs with future issues. A serious MUST READ.
