Review:

Kenny answers a classified ad as a caretaker for Miss Francois' estate. It sounded too good to be true. The gig came with room and board, a decent salary, and he ends up shacking up with the lady of the manor. The only rule is that he must stay way from the strange door and all its padlocks. Miss Francois is obviously hiding something, but Kenny doesn't let that stop him from taking advantage of that sweet gig.

The mysteries in It Eats What Feeds It grow and multiply, building to a bloody crescendo. Writers Max Hoven and Aaron Crow steadily build tension over the course of the series, adding more and more oddities that only amplify the disturbing nature of the story. It's presented in such a way that is both creepy and intriguing. You have to learn more, but you're scared to do so.

Gabriel Iumazark's artwork is pitch-perfect for this story. The angles in every panel add to the mystery, often hiding key things, such as Miss Francois' face. Much is implied without actually showing the terror, which only makes it scarier. This is unlike any other comic I've read and it really makes it stand out as a result.

Occasionally we get glimpses of whatever is lurking upstairs. If this was a movie, it would be a quick flash. The difference here is that we can stare at the image for as long as you want, taking it all in and building questions as to what exactly is going on. Iumazark leaves enough up to interpretation that we can start coming to our own conclusions, as frightening as they may be.

The color work is also unbelievable. It's like there's a fog hanging over the entire estate, creating a dreary atmosphere. Even when the sun is shining, the pages have a faded appearance. This casts even the more peaceful scenes in a foreboding light.

It Eats What Feeds It is a terrifying powerhouse of a comic. It starts with a simple concept and builds to an absolute bloodbath. It's one of the best horror comics I've read this year. Do yourself a favor and pick this up. The first issue hits on June 10th, 2020.
