Just like the dreaded Bermuda Triangle we have talk of missing ships in Ruse #13! Then to really get the juices going, then there is talk of giant squid (Kraken) who may be taking ships down underneath the waves. With the gothic style of artwork done on Ruse #13, this comic book would fare good with any scary Halloween story. Even the dark and shadowy character Master Obed Joy gives me the goosebumps. Not the type of guy I would want to come into contact with in a dark alley. I couldn’t help feel sorry for the dainty Sarah Ainsley being harassed in a bad way by all of those seedy men in that tavern. Then comes Obed Joy who seems to rescue this damsel in distress, but can she be safe with this mysterious stranger? What a powerful and explosive conclusion as Simon Archard is burying Emma alive! This is right out of an Alfred Hitchcock tale! Wow!
