The last time we saw we saw Echo was issue #9, all the way back in December of '99. Straight away you felt a connection with the character. Parts Of A Hole was a classic story and now Mack is back and he's brought Echo, to explore what happened to her and to see how she evolved.
David Mack is a true storyteller at its very purest essence! Echo has many demons, her life has not been easy. She's a fighter, but you can only tread water so long in quick sand. The feeling that is conjured up by these…….by these words, is something that only few can do! We learn about her past through snippets, flash frames, shards of memory. She needs to rebuild herself, but what do you do when you have descended into your own private hell!?! Simple……you go visit the devil!
I think the only way I can describe the art in this book is as beautiful and even that seems an injustice. Mack uses several different styles, but they merge together so well to create a mental masterpiece. Despair, pain, longing, all encapsulated on paper. Everything has this presence bout it. The work is delicate, but powerful, this book didn't even need words, you could stare at the pages transfixed for hours and understand everything!
