The graphic novel itself is a dark, and moody, self contained story the delivers an utterly chilling ending. The characters are tangible, and leap from the page with a sense authentic realism. Fullerton delivers some dark, and terrifying imagery, and as the isolation of being alone out in swampy cold conditions, and the fear of being chased by a crazed gangsters creates a sense palpable tension.
