Strangehaven: Brotherhood (vol. 2)

Credits: Written and Illustrated by Gary Spencer Millidge
Publisher: Abiogenesis Press

Commentary

The hypnotic trick of STRANGEHAVEN - a very English book, but entirely accessible to anyone who reads English - is that there is a main plotline, but after a while you just don't care.

So we drift through Gary Spencer Millidge's spectral English village, following the clandestine machinations of a secret society and wondering what they have to do with the apparent loop circling the town that keeps Alex Hunter within it no matter what... but we find ourselves standing and listening to the displaced South American shaman Megaron discussing his culture, and to the UFO watcher cheerfully surfing the alien, and watching the tangles of love lives and ghosts... and suddenly we realise the trick that's been pulled on Alex Hunter has been pulled on us. We can't leave. And don't particularly want to. We're locked in and we want to know more...
