Second Review of Two
Thanks to Emmet O’Cuana for his thoughtful, thorough review of issue two of Róisín Dubh on Comicbooked.com.
Here’s a snippet:
The funeral scene itself is the unquestioned highlight of the issue. Artist Stephen Byrne beautifully captures the isolation of the grieving Róisín, staring upward into the sky at free-flying birds while the hands of well-wishers grope at her, depicted in a series of inset panels. She is earthbound, trapped by her sadness, and even the supernatural Fainche is unable to give her any solace, admitting that it has no idea what waits after death. This is all powerfully delivered by the team of writer and artist.
