Haunt #7 - Image
I think Robert Kirkman has done a great job with this series so far. Are you reading it? If not . . you really need to get out there and check it out. If you're an E-bayer, you can find some of the first issues out there pretty cheap. At least cover price, or less. Unless of course you want to get the variants. Then you'll be paying a little more. So far I think it's been an outstanding series. This issue Daniel persuades Kurt into looking up a prostitute that he once helped. He says he felt a connection to her. Yeah . . right. Anyways, the apartment that he finds her in happens to be her pimp's. And he doesn't like anyone talking to his girls . . without paying. Well . . needless to say . . Haunt goes primal and takes out the whole apartment. It isn't even hard for him. Not against these guys. Which, when you think about it, is kind of disturbing . . how fast Daniel has taken to the usual effects and aftermath of his cosmetic change. Anyways, shortly after, Amanda calls because she's woken up and found all of this money that Mirage has left behind . . but she doesn't know who left it, or how it got there. So, Kurt decides that his wife needs to know what he really did for a living. She actually takes it much better than expected, but . . she needs time to absorb everything. And . . some time to herself. So Daniel heads off to the Company for his first day of training. Meanwhile, Kurg had gotten the notes of Shillinger's experiments, and is having remarkable success. He feels that they may be up to human trials within a month. And Cobra finally gets his bandages removed. I have a feeling that he's going to have a serious hard-on for Haunt when he sees what he looks like. This was kind of a maintenance issue. We really only see 2 or 3 pages of Haunt in action . . in the pimp's apartment. Other than that, it serves to move the story forward and tie up some loose ends . . while at the same time creating some new ones. Like I said, I think Robert is doing a great job developing and getting us familiar with this character. I also like Greg Capullo and Todd McFarlane's art. Overall I'm really enjoying this series. It's entertaining, and every month leaves you wanting more.
