5.0 out of 5 stars Grisly fun, 25 April 2014
I'm a big fan of Adam Cheal's work and I think this might be my favourite of his so far. Terminus at Fenton's Green plays merry hell with the idea of evil lurking just beneath the surface. The period in which it's set is perfect for the Gothic horror story that unfolds; the Victorian civility offset against the sinister undercurrent. Like all good horror it doesn't take itself too seriously and there are some great comic touches, my favourite being the line, "Typical, there's never a policeman when you need one." It won't make any sense without the accompanying image but I won't spoil it for you.

Again, I'm steering clear of spoilers but the tale very cleverly taps into a story/event that everybody will recognise, adding an extra dimension to the book. This layer of the story is built up throughout, using flashbacks which are unexplained, leaving the reader to fend for him or herself rather than being spoon-fed the plot.

The writing is strong, as you'd expect from Mr. Cheal and the artwork from Russ Leach is, to repeat another perfectly used phrase in the book, 'to die for'. Even the colouring is well thought out. In the opening chapter the colouring is understated, which allows for some nice hints of character in those early frames, the rest is on glorious full colour except for some choice use of black and white to highlight the flashback scenes. Nicely done.

There's a good bundle of extras too; sketches and page development and even a bonus story.

I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing Persons, 17 April 2014
By 
Darren Wilson "Captain Yorkshire" (York, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
The internet is full of people (like myself) complaining that the big comics companies don't experiment enough............my advice? Look elsewhere.....look here. Terminus at Fenton's Green plays beautifully with your perceptions from the very get go.

It's the kind of read that begs for return viewings as the ending demands that it stays lodged in your psyche...taunting you for not paying attention.

Scripted by the sublime Adam Cheal and gorgeously portrayed by Russ Leach - two talents I suspect you'll be hearing more of - this tome is one of those opportunities to get in on the ground floor. When you're seeing those names on the opening credits to the movie based on this in a few years time you'll be able to appear smug to your peers.

And isn't that, ultimately, what we all want for ourselves isn't it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Twist and turns, 17 April 2014
As the great Sean Phillips wrote... "This comic has it all, murder, monsters, mayhem and mammaries! What more could you want?"

That is an understatement and a half!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Wicked..., 18 April 2014
This review is from: Terminus at Fenton's Green (Hardcover)
Treated myself to the hardback edition and was extremely pleased that I did. It is an achingly beautiful book, lovingly put together by people new to the industry but clearly having a lot of fun in the process. Mr Cheal delivers a swift rollicking period tale that breezes along completely in sync with Russ Leach's heavily researched and gloriously detailed artwork. A powerful pairing and ones to watch out for in the future. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

5.0 out of 5 stars This comic has it all, murder, monsters, mayhem and mammaries! What more could you want?, 17 April 2014
The story is about a Victorian London gentleman that receives a mysterious offer of employment and is lured to the town of Fenton’s Green. He is trapped in an inescapable nightmare and must fight for his freedom and sanity. But he may be the greatest evil of all.

The book respectfully nods to "Lovecraft" and "Hammer House of Horror" in equal measures and plays with art styles in a "Wizard of Oz" way to maximise impact!

Comics industry star Sean Phillips (Batman, X-Men, Marvel Zombies) has provided the foreward and the book already has great reviews from sites such as "comicsandcookies.com" and "curiosity of a social misfit".

Ari Carr of comicsandcookies.com said of the book "this graphic novel is dark, disgusting, and above all else, brilliant!"
And Sean Phillips wrote... "This comic has it all, murder, monsters, mayhem and mammaries! What more could you want?"

good enough for me - a great read!
