Tarot, Witch Of The Black Rose #128

Picking up right from the end of the previous issue, Jon is stranded in the dark woods of limbo, in the realm of the dead. He grows physically weaker the longer he’s there, and a demon tries to weaken his spirit by forcing him to relieve the traumas of his life. From the physical abuse he endured at the hands of his parents as a child, to his failure to save Tarot and Raven’s mother, or help them contact her spirit in the afterlife. He then finds the woman whom he’d also inadvertently stranded in limbo, and now he wants to rescue her before both of their souls are lost forever. Thanks to some unexpected help from Raven, Jon and the woman do escape Limbo, but not without Jon suffering a heavy price. 

Once again Jim Balent ramps up the horror in this story, which I like. Limbo is present as a truly horrifying place, as are the demonic forces that Jon and his unnamed companion encounter there. This was a suspenseful and satisfying conclusion to this two-part story. Chacebook rating: FIVE STARS
