Previously on Outer Darkness…

The crew of the Charon is back after a rough spot with some ill-tempered spirits on board. Well, they’re all plenty ill-tempered folks on board but they’re all alive, for now. Another rescue is in order but this time from a French floating haunted house. The exorcists save the day once again under the leadership of Chief Exorcist. They even find a stowaway in the house from a bygone era. They decide to take along this nun, who was on an expedition against Nazis. 

My Take

Layman and Chan have done it again. This dynamic duo crafts another eventful tale with the crew of the galactic vessel the Charon.  First, I want to say is my favorite type of irony is situational irony. What I love most in this intergalactic horror story is the unique motivations of the various crewmembers. Combination of the two of these concepts is brilliant. We are treated to a little backstory of Ensign Malona Hydzek, who in the first issue was almost swallowed by the God Engine for her crimes. We learn about where she comes from and how she got to the Charon. Very entertaining indeed, especially her present day horrific nightmares and desires to get off the boat. These character reveals are always out of left field and I love it. Also, the art is still awesome and delivers strong beats to the story.

I do a few reviews (Black Panther) and I do news. I am a fan of both Marvel and DC heroes, Black Panther, Superman, Batman, The X-Men, Watchmen, to name a few. I also am streamer of a high degree, Netflix, Hulu plus, HBO, & Prime Video occupy a lot of my time when I'm not trying to save world in Education.
Summary
More of the escapades of the morticians, exorcists, mathematicians, and sycophants of the Charon are upon us. When a rescue mission because a scary housewarming party, you know you’re having a good time with Layman and Chan. Rigg and his crew take on nasty death house and the only way to find out what happens is to pick up Outer Darkness #7. It’s frightening, eye-catching, and shocking what you will see and I dare you to find something else comparable. Pick it up today.
Good
