Review:  ★★★☆☆

All stories have a beginning or starting point to all where things are explained. Darkness Visible’s latest issue does just that;  or it goes back far enough for us to relate to what’s going on in the story. The story is titled Winston and Vivian. The time is 1940 when World War II was in full swing. Vivian just happens to be a demon, or Shaitan Anazge, of the highest order. Basically the “demons” want to join with the human in order to end the war and save their race. Needless to say it’s very uncomfortable adjustment for the British. This issue is nice change from the previous story as it gives us the back story about how the demons came to live our world. The art is little rough and it would be nice if there was more detail. The likeness of Winston Churchill was done really well. Granted they did tell us who he was right of the beginning. The last page might give us the necessary foreshadowing to what is currently in the works for the world. I can’t wait to read the next issue and catch up with Aston.
