Basilisk #1 is the premiere issue of a new supernatural horror series from New York Times bestselling horror published by BOOM! Studios, writen by Cullen Bunn (Harrow County), acclaimed artist Jonas Scharf (Avengers of the Wasteland), colorist Alex Guimarães, and letterer Ed Dukeshire.
Basilisk #1 is available now in print and on digital where all good comics are sold.
Who Can Stop The Chimera? Five individuals bound by a cult-like hivemind, they terrorize small towns with their horrifying, supernatural sense-based powers, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Regan, one of the Chimera, escaped and has been in hiding with her murderous eyes bound, overcome with guilt. Until now… when a victim from her past forces her to hunt down the other four of her kind.
At first look at the synopsis I was intrigued by Basilisk, a terrifying cult that brings horror to their local town with their superpowers, well that first part definitely grabbed my attention. What I did get in the sense of story far outweighed my expectations, Bunn brings a story of intense supernatural horror that keeps you hooked page after page.
An intense story from the start, Bunn brings us the story of Regan, a young woman who has escaped the Chimera and what now lies ahead for her now a victim from her past enlists her to take revenge on the cult.
What lies ahead is a fully action pack page turner that you won’t want to put down. The illustrations are unlike anything I’ve seen before with Scharf using a realistic noir style to the comic for the first part, I really liked the look of this I felt it added more drama to the story being told, the following pages are packed with incredible detail, the use of more darker colours really intensifies the dramatic feel to the story.
I really felt the story worked well and enjoyed finding out the beginnings of a story that looks like it is going to get better and better as the issues go on, I definitely look forward to seeing the story of Regan develop and how she is going to take on the evil Chimera.
I found Basilisk #1 an intense story from the start to finish, I loved the art style and look forward to seeing more in the coming issues. Fans of action thrillers definitely need to pick this up, you will not be disappointed.
