In issue zero of Five Senses, created by Raymond Brothers, Scott Glassgold, and written by Jake Black, we’re introduced to Chad Bowman, who is an up and coming young business man who witnesses a brutal murder in broad daylight. The murder doesn’t fit with his schedule and perfectly planned life, so he opts to lie to the police in order to make it to an important meeting. That’s when the messages start arriving. Someone knows that he’s not coming forward, and it just might cost Bowman his life.
The setup for this book is one of my favorite types in the horror and thriller genre, which is a person who makes a horrible and justified choice and must pay the price through supernatural forces. It also helps that there are creepy dolls scattered throughout the story. Those scare the pants off of anyone.
“Five Senses has the eeriness of a Stephen King novel and the same cosmic justice that classic fairy tales are famous for.” SequentialReview.com
