If you believe in monsters....... - DKnobius
As the "Julia" arc continues we see what happens after the events leading up to Julia and Lent leaving the circus in the wake of the Springheel Jack reveal.

The story begins with Proof and Ginger traveling back to the lodge. As the story unfolds we get a chance to see the depths of Lent's depravity in dealing with his wife and newborn child. While I don't want to give anything away here, I will say that this episode left me with an emotional feeling toward a character that few if any comics have ever elicited.

It ends on a cliffhanger that doesn't look good for the future of Thomas Lent, and could further the developments that become the rift between Proof (Gulliver) and Mi-Chen-Po (Gilgamesh).

The art throughout this arc has been really good, and Riley continues that trend in this issue. You can feel the emotions of the characters as you read the story, and empathize with what is going on in the story.

Dave Casey again does a fabulous job on colors and has been a major contribution to the story since he joined the team. There has never been a bad colorist on Proof, but Dave is probably the best so far.

Alex Grecian's writing continues to impress 22 issues in to this book. He writes stories that draw you in to the book, and makes you care about the characters.

This issue features two back-up stories; one featuring Nadine (Chupacabra) and reveals that her intentions might not have been what readers thought when she was offering aid to the Colonel, the second is the finale of the current Archie Snow story that has been running the last few issues. But are really well done and it's nice to see some resolution of previous events, and Archie Snow is always a fun and intriguing read.

Overall, Grecian, Rossmo, Casey and everyone else involved in this book continue to deliver the goods month after month.

If you believe in need PROOF.
