Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety #1, Clay Mcleod Chapan (Writer), Brian Level (Art.)
Clay McLeod Chapman has certainly found his wheelhouse in the horror department as Separation Anxiety is straight up nightmare fuel. The entire book is just page after page of the story's namesake- Anxiety. From the intro of "man's best friend" to the eventual family road trip at the end of the book, Chapman makes sure that no panel is left without a sense of panic and urgency to keep you on your toes.
As is with most horror tales, the visual representation of the script often helps to stimulate the sense of fear that a horror book needs to instill into its reader. Brian Level's artwork is highly underrated, and underutilized. As the story is primarily told from the point of view of a panicked child, Level's artwork could stand alone in telling the tale without any actual words to the book. The absolute horror that spans the entirety of Separation Anxiety would be meaningless without Level's adept ability to follow the art script to the T.
Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety is an amazing read, and can stand on its own as a random horror story, but has me even more pumped for the rest of Absolute Carnage, and how the Life Foundation symbiotes will play into the larger Marvel Event.
