Ouija Interview No. 4: Mack, Agatha, and Samantha
By Sarah Becan
More ghost stories! This one is pretty brutal and sad, and if you liked how fun and lighthearted the previous one I reviewed was then this one might not be for you.
A tale of murder, depression, and incest is brought to life through the three ghost characters introduced here. It's pretty brutal stuff and made me kind of sad to read it, because I know that things like this happen in real life and there's not really anything I can do about them. Boo.
The writing here is kind of strange and considerably less linear than the straight question and answer style of the previous issue I read. The ghosts respond with answers that don't really answer anything, repeat the same word over and over again, and I guess act more like what a spooky ouija board encounter is supposed to be like.
As for the art, Becan continues to draw really rad ghosts and gets a lot of expression and feeling out of their limited features. Plus this time she has three different ghosts to draw, and is able to have them interacting with each other a little.
