Rowans Ruin #1

BOOM! Studios


Rowans Ruin is a thrilling, supernatural series from writer Mike Carey, who has done work with DC Comics (Lucifer, Hellblazer), and illustrator Mike Perkins who has also done work with DC Comics and DArk Horse Comics (Black Mist, Ruse).

Rowans Ruin is a chilling tale about Katie, a young woman, who seeks a bit of adventure. So she uses social media in order to “house-swap” with someone from another country. Things are going great for Katie, she hits the jackpot when another young woman contacts her and offers to house-swap with her…only her house is a beautiful mansion in England! When Katie arrives however, her nights are disturbed by awful nightmares and the unsettling feeling that she is not alone in the mansion. After some research and a few conversations with the locals…Katie uncovers a hidden history of the mansion rife with witches, black magic, ghosts and other horrors of the night!

This issue is definitely a strong beginning to a promising series that will entertain any supernatural/horror fan! The artwork is great and does a wonderful job of creating truly frightening scenes. The writing is slightly choppy, but not so much as to distract from the story.
