    When bullied Deacon learns the dark past of his small town Texas high school, he discovers a vengeful ritual used to wreak havoc on his enemies – like the school’s all-star quarterback.

    But when Deacon wakes up covered in someone else’s blood, he realizes that the ritual was no childish game. And with every passing day the lines blur between the payback he envisioned and the revenge he’s committing.”

    Simple Simon, Your makin’ me start rhyming, Just to get some attention, For this awesome collection, Of an amazing Horror series, That is full of gore and mystery(s). That’s all I got folks goodnight! In all seriousness I told you when it came to the single issues that this mini was a MUST READ, and the story was not even finished yet. Well not that I have read it all, this book should be in your hands by the time you are done reading this review. I want to just say HOLY $#!+ and be done with it, but I can’t. The horror in this book is beyond great. I do have to admit that to me it was kind of obvious who the “bad guy” was, but I still had more fun than I should have reading it. Take a horror movie where people die in the most Awesome ways, now add to that a teenage drama about high school, then add to that a good detective cop film and then sprinkle on some Old Boy and you have Careful. The artwork was good, very consistent, but it really only shined in the GORE-Geous death scenes. That could easily be my thick-headed horror brain having a bias though. I just can’t get over how much I enjoyed this story. The pacing was great, the mixing of genres was fantastic, but it all got sealed with the ending being so bad ass. The only thing I have left to say on this is IT IS A MUST READ for fans of any genre. Go order it now.

    Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
    Story: 4.5 out of 5
