Dark Spaces: Dungeon #2 Review:

in Dark Spaces: Dungeon, a man who escaped a serial… Killer? Kidnapper? Whatever it is, escaped his dungeon and is now trying to find other people who are similarly trapped. Only the madman is several steps ahead of them.

Host Alex Zalben called this book “crazy dark… This is basically: what if Scott Snyder wrote Seven? It’s a harrowing read.”

Pete LePage said he was “not ready” for the horrific ending of this issue, which does specifically shout out to an iconic scene from Seven. “This book is so disturbing, the way that things are paced out,” Zalben said. He added that Snyder and Sherman are “a perfect team.”

LePage added “this book messes me up so much that I want to call all my friends and just be like, Listen, if you don’t see me for a couple hours, come look for me. I don’t want this ever to happen.”

“[This is] very intense,” Zalben said. “It’s real horror… Phenomenal, as a horror fan… This is obviously not the end goal, but this is the sort of thing that if somebody doesn’t pick up as a movie, I don’t know what [they’re thinking].”

Dark Spaces: Dungeon #2 Official Synopsis:

“Tell No One!” The message scrawled in the Father’s basement haunts his mind as he tries to get his family to start their new life in their small, quiet, upstate town. As they start introducing themselves to other people in their community, any of them could be the owner of the Dungeon in his basement. Will he lose his mind before he can find the identity of who is responsible for the evil buried under his home?
