After a battle and finding out some truths, Rory was saved but at the cost of Hellaine’s life.

In the end, we see a monologue that tells us what is going to happen to her and the people of Woodsburgh and learn to live with the ting that is inside her.
From start to finish this series is great, while it does has it slow down moments and is only 6 issues long, this series was a great read. This series felt like if John Carpenter’s The Thing was set in the west and to be honest I loved it. If you haven’t read this series go do yourself a favor and read this series, especially since Halloween is around the corner. Also if you become a fan of this series just to let you know this series is coming back in 2021 with “Merciless.”
