I will be the first to admit that Winnebago Graveyard did not grip me from the start. I am a horror fan when it comes to most media, so I assumed that I would love this comic from issue one. That was not the case. I found the art very harsh and the story a bit confusing. Then the art grew on me, and I really started caring about what happened to the family we were following. It is a shame it took me four issues to really sink my teeth into this book. I am planning on reading the previous issues again and getting the book when it comes out as a trade paperback in November.
As far as issue 4 goes, we get to see Christine fight to keep her family alive as Satanist’s attack. These are words I never thought I would type. This issue is action packed and full of chases, explosions, skinning. All of the stuff that I have learned to love about Winn-Yard. The art blows you away as you go from page to page. But take your time reading it, there is a lot to see in each panel. I have a bad habit of moving too quickly when there is limited dialogue, but you miss so much if you fall into that trap. As usual, I will not spoil anything for you, but I will say that I am a big fan of the way this book has ended.
