Strange Embrace #1 (of 8)
*** 1/2 (out of five)
Strange Embrace had long been one of the most chilling comic book stories around — and it just got even more so.
The psychological horror from the mind of David Hine (Spawn, X-Men: Civil War) finally gets the full-colour treatment as an eight-issue miniseries from Image Comics.
The first issue sees delivery boy Sukumar’s first encounter with the mysterious psychic Alex and a trip into Alex’s past that leads him face to face with the devil.
Fans of Hine’s fine recent work on Spawn won’t want to miss this one.
