Snipe Hunting is an Americanized imagining of the infamous Dytalov Pass Incident. After a group of campers are mysteriously found dead, the “haunted” woods surrounding the coastal New England town of Narranghassett are teeming with paranormal investigators, FBI agents, and curious locals – each confident of the underlying cause of the deaths (Aliens, Terrorists, Jesus, Indian Curses…etc). The longer they search for clues in the woods to support their individual theories, the further they descend into the depths of paranoia, hallucinations, and intense mania. Will one theory be proven correct, or is everyone caught in a violent game of snipe hunting?
First – Google the Dytalov Pass Incident – right, ok.
I’ve never really got into horror comics, but this is one with legs that I could get behind! The art is smooth and has the right light/dark balance between it. This is a strong month for comics on Zuda and I can see this one being a contender. I am going to have a hard time choosing my vote.
The story is well paced and ends on a cliffhanger making you want more – there are many ways that this story may go, so the ride will be wild.
