Synopsis: 10 year old Dylan Sandifer is a fraternal twin with a close knit family. They enjoy spending time together, playing games, and going on road trips. Christopher Sebela sums it up by stating, “The Sandifers are experiencing a mental condition known as folie a deux, a shared madness that will drive them to kidnap and torture strangers, burn down secret safe houses, and do whatever it takes to stay alive.”
Only Dylan has snapped out of the delusion. She reflects on the horror of what her family has become. Now, she needs to make a decision.
Review: The artwork in House Amuck is blocky, somewhat two dimensional, and has an old school style. This lends to the immediate interest while reading this comic. The storyline is immediately interesting. Adding reference to the Oregon Vortex and the warp to reality only draws the reader in more. There are some moments that were confusing, but those small puzzles were cleared up before the end of this volume. If you enjoy reading about conspiracy theories, adventure, horror, and wonder if reality isn’t always what it seems, House Amok will keep your interest.
Rating: I give this comic 5 Stars.
