Matt Hawkins and Bryan Hill begin to peel away the layers behind the not-so-good townsfolk of Eden, Wyoming. A town populated by dubious people looking for a new start by hiding in plain sight. However, what’s revealed in issue two of Postal is even darker and seedier than we expected.

Postal02-Page6-75b4aThe writers have surrounded Mark with the shadiest people ever found in a comic book. The young man whose Asperger’s actually helps him unravel the suspicious going-ons in his town but not even his own mother is not without her secrets. He’s aided by another unlikely friend in the waitress he has a crush on.

Her backstory is a doozy but the lingering dread you’ll feel after reading Postal #2 comes from the revelations about Mark’s dad. Hawkins and Hill are turning this mystery story into a gripping must-read thriller.

Isaac Goodhart and Betsy Gonia are providing the foundation for all this eeriness with flawless art. Goodhart’s pencil work has a natural flair to it that gives the pages a realistic look. It’s straight forward with no theatrics which lend perfectly to this supposedly quiet town but then Gonia’s colors come in like a dense fog setting the tone for potential danger with every page turn.
