Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
See, now this is why you need to let the ladies in your life go out and have some fun every now and then. White Devil #1 explores that very statement and show how far some might go to get a little excitement in their lives. The artwork by Burns is amazing from panel to panel. He has a great feel for the cast, and the way his panels are laid out are just GORE-Geous. My only downside on the artwork though is the lettering. When using the hand written typeface, I had trouble reading it. It did take a little time to get used to, and it was the reason I had to lower the overall grade when it came to the artwork. The story by Evans and Helinski is going somewhere, and it's going to be really good. This issue does a great job of introducing the reader to the cast, and then heads straight into the actions that will lead up to the next few issues. I thought that the pacing was great. I love the concept here and can not wait to see how this all unravels. In terms of horror, this issue really ended on a high note, and that is what you need to get me to come back for more. This issue was almost perfect, and that is a damn good sign of things to come. With some minor tweaks on the lettering side of things this book is going to floor you all. Definitely check this one out, especially while it is free to read online. More please!
