The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #7
Olivia, Connor, and Willow finally find sanctuary in a small town that's been given over to the Wilding. Weeds crack the asphalt. Animals roam the street. Humanity is all but forgotten.
Horror and sex go together like peanut butter and jelly, and The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #7 is a sandwich that satisfies. Cullen Bunn’s The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #7 checks off a lot of boxes for horror fans. There’s death, danger, suspense, and lust. Bunn’s world-building is impressive and continuously unraveling right before Olivia’s eyes. Everyone working on this book seems to all be on the same page, no pun intended. Leila Leiz’s art makes switches between quiet, personal moments to absolute chaos and carnage look effortless. I especially enjoy Leiz’s use of close-ups to show emotion and then switching to more intense, lustful moments. Vladimir Popov’s colors bring a good balance to Leiz’s pencils. Together, the two artists add heat in more ways than one and give a good sense of the tension in this world.
The Last Book You’ll Ever read appears to be the perfect series for Jim Campbell to letter. This issue includes plenty of moments to show why he is the “the Gothest Man in Comics.” A highlight for me was the various onomatopoeias in one of the more intense moments of the issue. Campbell also does an incredible job lettering quieter moments, and in many ways, I think he effectively matches the tone that Cullen is going for throughout.
Overall, The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #7 is a solid issue in the series that brings tense, terrifying moments that aren't afraid to heat up. Though it may not actually be the last book you read, it will be one you don’t want to put down.
