Picked up this book due to Miranda’s art, which I’ve been enjoying in Fairest and that Kittredge is a new woman comic author. The rough parts of the story — mostly the time elements — seem to be pretty common when novelists transition into writing comic books. Novelist just aren’t as used to the picture and text flow of the comic book. I’m sure Kittredge will only get more adept as she continues to craft the story.

I like Eve so far. Though I’m looking forward to learning more about who all the people are in her family. (Seems like most all the characters who were named are now dead.) And why she became a cop.

The story opens in an odd place as I expected it to show the development of Eve from rebellious teenager with a shady family into a cop. Instead, after Eve leaves the hospital, she seems to have reverted into her angry former self.

Looking forward to seeing how the story progresses.

I want some more characterization around Eve and to see how she evolved from rebellious teenager into cop. Not just that Dani died and the forest freaked her out. Sure, those are motivations to reform, but they aren’t motivations to help others.

I’m also looking forward to seeing Eve use her powers. She seems to have tapped into to find the skull.

Nate just seems to be a non-descript dull boy all grown up into a jerk man who’s upset about not getting laid or something. Maybe he’ll grow a personality as we go on with the story.

I’m digging that Mel may have been catatonic, but that she’s seemingly back. I’m glad someone stabbed that doctor too. He was annoying and troublesome. Seems like Eve and other black magic ladies aren’t the only ones conjuring up stuff.

I’m going to assume that Ellie became wheelchair bound due to something that happened that night. I enjoyed how nonchalant she was about breaking glass and using her powers against her daughter. Though the last issue made the house seem a bit more abandoned than it apparently is.

Not sure how I feel about Eve sleeping with Nate. Not a huge fan of the guy in general. Really glad that Mel’s been added back to the main, active cast.

Figure out the mystery of Coffin Hill and buy Coffin Hill Vol. 1: Forest of the Night.
