Three days alone in a wooden shack in the snow.
He said he'd come back soon, but something is--must be--terribly wrong now...

Steve Niles and Mark Texeira bring you a fresh twist on a classic conceit! Curses must be severed...

Even though the cover is terribly misleading, I found the story to be chilling and highly enjoyable (despite the blood and gore, but maybe 'cuz I'm okay with that stuff). The story is simple, direct and to-the point, offering a few twists here and there. It's a classic horror tale. I would like to say that the characters are great, but sadly we never know much about them. I don't even think the main character has a name! It's a little disappointing, but really we're just here for the creepy, intense, and gory ride. And for that we turn to the story and the art.

The artwork is very beautiful, I really like the design of the werewolf and of the ghoulish Paul. Very cool! The artist really did a great job at conveying the main character's loneliness.

What really got my attention, and what made the whole thing REALLY AWESOME, were the sound effects, the overall soundtrack, and the animation, all of which make this short comic come to life. It really showcases the potential for Motion Books! These comics are not static, they are like animated comic books. It's really cool to see the events in the story play out with animation, sound effects and music. They enhance the experience and make this truly awesome! I really can't wait to be able to use this tool and experiment with it!

In all, I'm really looking forward to more Motion Books! I can't wait to use the tool, and I'm excited for the possibilities that it will bring!
Great job, guys! It was really cool! :)
