Cullen Bunn knows how to tell a story in a way that twists and turns, that leaves you never knowing exactly what will happen next. I left the last issue thinking “Here’s a new villain” and by the end of this issue, I have no idea who is good and bad. Not only in the course of Issue #14 has he created a handful of complex characters, but he has expanded the scope of the world of Harrow County by leaps and bounds. I feel like after turning every corner, nothing will ever be the same. In this way Cullen Bunn has created something on par with Mind MGMT, Saga, Preacher, Harry Potter, Avatar the Last Airbender, and the original Star Wars trilogy. He’s taken the foundation of mythmaking and presented it to us in a fable-esque horror story packaging that is original and terrifying.

“When I first took command of this post, all I wanted was to be somewhere else. Anywhere but here. But now, five years later, this has become my home, and you have become my family. And leaving this station, leaving you, is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do...I promise, I will not rest until I stand with you again, here. In this place where I belong.”

The cliffhanger is one of the great tricks of writing. Essentially, you set something up, preferably an unsolvable situation, and that propels the audience to seek out the next installment. They have to in order to know how it comes out. Most long-form art, whether it’s comics, novels, or serialized television, like to finish out issues, chapters, or episodes with some kind of twist or revelation that functions in much the same way. It’s not always the best tactic from the perspective of the writers, though.
