Tarot, Witch Of The Black Rose #134

tarot 1

Writer/Artist Jim Balent divides this issue in two, giving us a solo Jon story in the first half, and then a solo Tarot story in the second half.

Jon, now fully healed and back in great physical shape, is in his Skelton Man costume, he’s gotten a tip from his ghost pals about some gang that’s stealing corpses. This reads almost like a traditional superhero story, he discovers a creepy guy in a mask cutting up a corpse and confronts him only to have to fight off some costumed henchmen. But this ends in a cliffhanger when some other costumed characters arrived.

I’m not really sure what’s going on, but it was a fast-paced story, and I’m interested to see what happens next.

Then it switches to Tarot’s story. She’s flying in the air, I guess on patrol, and spies a giant fly, carrying a string. Naturally she’s curious about it and follows the fly, which leads her to an old abandoned school building where she finds a bunch of human/insect hybrids who have abducted a young woman. This story also ends in a cliffhanger that leaves our heroine in danger

It’s not a bad issue, I’m curious to see if the two stories connect later. It’s got the usual great artwork from Jim Balent, although it is light on the nudity (just a little side-boob and nipple action at the end). But it’s an entertaining comic. Chacebook rating: FOUR STARS
