This was an interesting first issue. Daphne is a strange and unique young girl. She is teased relentlessly at school. It definitely makes the days long and lonely for her. It’s just Daphne and her mother. Her father is dead. And this poor little girl…her mother is just totally obsessed with going to some medium who claims she can speak to people in other worlds.
This mother just feeds this medium money and believes everything the psychic tells her. One day she takes Daphne with her. This is where we find out just how different and unique Daphne really is. We also find out how smart this child is.
Daphne challenges the medium to test her validity. A very smart and slick move on her part.
Daphne also figures out that she is the one that can actually speak to and see people from another world.
While this was the first issue, so an introductory issue, it was a good issue. I have a feeling this is going to be a very creepy and eerie series. Daphne is like an Emo version of Wednesday Addams. There is a definite chill factor in the way the art and the story are presented.
I do think this is going to be a series worth checking out. Especially if you like paranormal/supernatural type stuff. All of the stuff that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up…I think this series is going to be chocked full of that and so much more.
