This is sadly the last issue of Green Wake as the creative team is moving on to different projects. But donâ€™t let that put you off from checking out this issue or this series. The story comes to a conclusion, but in no way is it rushed or forced upon readers. It ends naturally and with all of the precision of a TV show finale. What was originally supposed to be a five issue mini-series blossomed into twice that many issues, and Iâ€™m glad that we got all of that extra content.
In this final issue we see Morely Mack final discover the strange secrets behind the town of Green Wake and weâ€™re given a glimpse at some horrifying supernatural elements. All of this story reminds me of a much more magical version of Silent Hill, where fantasy and horror blend together into a fine liquid mesh. Mackâ€™s ending isnâ€™t the showiest in all of comic book storytelling, but it definitely resonates and gives us a sense of closure at the end of the title.
The artwork in this issue was truly something fun to behold. It had a very distinct and scratchy style that added to the beauty of simple panels and the terror of the more gruesome ones. I really enjoyed all of the scenes that were set near and in water, and the creature designs were out of this world.
Itâ€™s sad to see a great Image series end, but it ended well. When the whole series is collected itâ€™ll be a must buy for anyone who loves the supernatural or horror comic book genre. It might have ended a little sooner than planned, but it still went out with a bang.
