Read Come Again

Read Come Again by Nate Powell

As the sun sets on the 1970s, the spirit of the Love Generation still lingers among the aging hippies of one “intentional community” high in the Ozarks. But what’s missing?

Under impossibly close scrutiny, two families wrestle with long-repressed secrets… while deep within those Arkansas hills, something monstrous stirs, ready to feast on village whispers.

I like Powell’s art and lettering, which worked well for this story. Great color palette and use of mixed color and black and white in the storytelling. Some interesting page layouts used effectively. I’m not sure I got everything out of the story that was there. I think the big secret was kind of boring and sad, and not really understandable from a motivation perspective. The ending seemed like a weird character choice and kind of avoided the reckoning that was deserved.
