Cursed #1 would have been a lesser comic all together if not for the tool of storytelling used by the creative team. In fact, I don’t think I would’ve liked it at all otherwise.
Writers Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel make use of their talents to make what could have been a mediocre story fantastic. This isn’t “OH MY GOD! THEY’RE PUTTING AN ALL-NEW SPIN ON THE GENRE!,” but what they DID do was use a very unique way to tell this story. I can’t stress that the way they tell this story is SO FUN! It starts with an aftermath of sorts, and the issue ends on a huge reveal that, even though you knew was coming, really knocks you for a loop. Amidst all of that, we get some great information about what’s going on, where the story is headed, and what the purpose of this book is.
