Hi guys sorry this is so late…but here’s my review of Silent Hill Past Life #3!
Silent Hill fans if you haven’t picked up the Past Life comic series, what are you waiting for!? Issue #3 is out and continues the Foster’s fun filled adventures in Silent Hill.
In this issue things the creep factor has jumped up a notch and we are treated to the real horrors from Jebediah’s, “Hell Rider” past. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, but let’s just say he worked hard to earn that outlaw name! It really makes me wonder how such a nasty man was able to win over such a nice woman like Esther.
Along with Jebediah’s past we also make some startling realizations about many of the Silent Hill townsfolk we’ve met so far, including an interesting tidbit on our Post Master friend Howard Blackwood! Turns out he may have be lured to the town due to some dark deeds of his own and has me wondering if his current situation is related to a punishment or self realization of his own. I’m definitely eager to see how his story continues in Silent Hill Downpour if this Howard Blackwood is the same postman we saw in the the E3 2010 trailer.
Like the past two issues Menton3’s continues to wow especially the page compositions depicting wet work from Jebediah’s violent past. These scenes are quick but it captures Jebediah’s just how cruel a man Jebediah really was. I think however my favorite piece of art from this issue included small cameos of Past Life writer, Tom Waltz, the artist himself, Menton3 and even Silent Hill: Downpour Producers Devin Shatsky and Tomm Hulett!
Past Life continues to be a phenomenal read and you will be left on the edge of your seat for the series conclusion in issue #4!
