Lot 13 is a prime example of how horror comics work in ways that films cannot. The premise thus far is a fairly simple ghost tale that involves your typical suburban family, however, the way it is presented on the page is such an efficient use of the medium. Niles script flows nicely, and Glenn Fabry’s artwork is so complimentary to the story it’s hard to imagine anyone else drawing this book. Without having to rely on CGI or practical effects, the story holds onto a Gothic mood rather than feeling like a modern low-budget horror film. Issue #2 drops today, November 28th, and I strongly recommend you check it out.
