MIRKA ANDOLFO’S MERCY #5, available Wednesday from Image Comics, continues the dark tale of one small town, and the monsters that have come to feast upon it. There is a saying; you reap what you sow. It makes one wonder what this town has sown.

The Woodsburgh Devil appears to be far from done in Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #5. Her quest is an odd one, feeling at times like a personal vendetta. At other times, it almost feels like the Lady Hellaine wants nothing to do with this town or the vengeance she could wreak upon it.

Mercy has never been a series to shy away from the dark, or the graphic for that nature. It has always portrayed this strange combination of beauty and horror, of elegance and gore. That element continues in the latest issue, but the implications feel darker than ever.

A word to the wise, where the previous four issues were not for the weak of heart, or those that dislike gory scenes, this one is so much worse. Not because of the gore (the previous issue was worse on that count), but because of the graphic implications of another variety. For those that cannot handle the idea of harm coming to a pregnant woman, now would be a good time to look away.
