Ruth Glenny has been chained up in the attic for years after the last killing spree she went on when free. But now with their Grandpa and brother trapped by the thing in the swamp, Zeke and Baby Hazel have no choice but to unleash their mother and hope that she’ll stay sane long enough to save their family.
Desperation can force us to make tough decisions that we know will likely have negative consequences in the end. When it comes to protecting family, we’re far more likely to do things we probably never would have ever thought of before. In the third issue of Blood & Dust: The Life and Undeath of Judd Glenny, deciding on the lesser of two evils may end up being quite the opposite.
With the swamp monster having taken Judd and one of his grandkids, the other two decide to free their uncontrollable and very powerful mother to help. Although she helps to put up more of a fight, the monster is still too powerful – until the stranger who came visiting intervenes with a good old gasoline fire. Taking advantage of this, Judd manages to use some sort of magic to take down the evil being. Unfortunately, momma is now on the loose and the town may fall victim to her destruction.
The great fight scenes that began in the last issue are intensified by quite a bit here, making for even more exciting artwork. Colors were absolutely fantastic here, especially when it came to the scenes involving the addition of fire. You could almost feel the heat of it coming off the page, and one shot with Judd and his daughter was really great.
Anyone could have seen the ending here coming with momma on the loose, but what happens next will be interesting to see. Judd may end up having to make a tough decision of his own in order to save the townsfolk from her. The choice to continue following this series is a pretty easy one, so head on into town and grab yourself a copy while it’s hot.
