‘Dept.H #9:’ Advance Comic Book Review

For the last few issues of Matt and Sharlene Kindt’s murder mystery, Dept.H, Mia – while trapped in a mostly submerged room with Roger on a deep sea research base – has been trying to learn more about the motives of the other crew members, so she can solve who killed her father. Her father having been the head of Dept.H. While Mia is considering Roger’s character analysis, we get to see how the paired-up crew members not only deal with the structure as it falls apart around them, but how they react with each other. Right now, there are three different cliffhangers that I’m waiting to find out how they will resolve.

This is such an incredibly satisfying read. I wish it were coming out once every week. My brain itches for the next issue, and I can’t help but want to try to figure out who the murderer is as I read. The brilliant thing is, not all the clues I feel are in the storytelling alone, but in the art and coloring of the book. When all is said and done, I feel that you’ll be able to look back and see clues hidden in the way Sharlene has chosen to light certain scenes.
