Review - Rachel Rising #1

Rachel Rising #1 by Abstract Studios. Written & Drawn by Terry Moore. $3.99.

"Death s not the worst thing that can happen to you." Plato.

Terry Moore is known for his series Strangers In Paradise that was praised by anyone that read it. He has written or drawn titles for Marvel and DC over the years but still loves the self-publishing freedom to write what he wants to.

The story starts out with Rachel dead and buried. But as a mysterious woman looks over her make shift grave, she comes to life and forces her way out and stumbles away. She then goes home and tries to piece together what happened to her.

Terry is known for telling a lot of his story in the pictures without words and most of this comic is that way. But don't be fooled, he is a master at doing it. He makes completely thought out characters, even the not so important supporting cast, that compel you to read his comics and want to see what happens. This title is no exception.

Being as it is just the beginning, you are left hanging at the end, but it just makes you want to see the next issue even more. Though this is his first endeavor into the horror genre, with his past accomplishments, I am sure this will be another winner for him.
