John Carpenter’s Asylum #3 (Storm King)
Decapitated Dan: Back in 2011 I said that Leonardo Manco was hands down the artist of the year. All you have to do is pick up a single issue of Asylum and you will know why. The book is visually flawless. Page after page cause eyegasms, and only leaves your brain craving more. You might think that because the artwork is so good, the story can’t keep up, and you would be wrong. Jones keeps delivering this non-stop thrill ride of a tale. Just when you think it’s going to slow down, it smacks you and says “Keep up damn it!” Now while that is good on all levels, I do think it would help to have a recap page start off the issues. I don’t mind going back to reread what came before at all, but it would help to have that when you have a month between issues. Overall I can only ask, “Why aren’t you reading Asylum?” This series is easily sitting in my top 5 current comics list. – Dying Breath 4.5 out of 5.0
