There are many types of horror, each depicted in many different ways. I can use movies for the best examples since they’re typically more prevalent in pop culture than comic books, and because I can’t really think of any other than Tales from the Crypt and even that one was featured on television. But what I’m talking about is there’s a very large gap between Hitchcock thrillers, campy slasher flicks, and gory Saw anthologies.
Harrow County #1 is more Hitchcock’s speed, starting with a towns relationship with a witch that turns sour. Its frightening past is detailed perfectly by Harrow County‘s writer, Cullen Bunn. It’s eerie and makes your skin crawl, but keeps you wanting more. You have this sick feeling in your stomach that tells you exactly whats going to happen next, but you still continue reading.
A person associated with Harrow County but not unfamiliar with the supernatural is its artist, B.P.R.D. alum Tyler Crook. Books are easily lost without the right directions of its writer and guidance by its artist. Combining both of those together makes Harrow County #1 this classic style horror I haven’t seen in a while, well not since Afterlife with Archie anyway.
