Each week it is released, Basilisk has easily been one of my favorite books. I have been picking up every first print copy of 1 and 2 I can find, and now I'm adding 3 to the list. Not only because I'm a huge Cullen Bun fan, but also because I think he and Jonas Scharf and Alex Guimaraes with Ed Dukeshire on letters are putting together a horror offering of a never-before seen scope.
As issue 3 offered us some insight to the traveling members of "the family" and why they are on their reign of terror, Boom Studios offers the following insight to what we can expect in book number 4:
The showdown between the Chimera and their hunters begins HERE! Hannah and Regan, former member and victim of the Chimera, arrive at an abandoned resort town in the mountains. As the two women uncover and struggle with their shared past, the Chimera and their Faithful descend on the area. To their surprise, Hannah has been waiting for their arrival, and the ensuing battle will have deadly consequences for those unprepared... "
I am thoroughly excited to see what hell the Chimera bring forth and how Hannah and Reagan can combat it. The covers alone offer an awesome and ominous insight.
Check out the first-look at these early preview pages, offering yet another reason why I think Book 4 will become the definite not-to miss issue of this blockbuster series!
This is not just one of my favorite ongoing series, but I may be willing to say that it's one of my favorite Cullen Bunn works (even though I'll forever beg for a second arc of Brothers Dracul). You should definitely add it to your pull now if you haven't been, so you don't miss out in early September!
