About the Book:
The Gargoyle is a cursed human named Doyle, is still pursuing a cure for his condition, the curse to change into a gargoyle at night. He takes a job that has a potential cure, but makes a life changing action that seems to have consequences greater than he realizes.
This particular story shows a titular hero continuing the pursuit of a cure for the afflicted curse. As he comes up on a gang boss who offers a solution, he makes the mistake of asking about the package he is asked to deliver.
Once he looks in the bag, despite being told not to do so, the course of the night is forever altered, in turn changing his future beyond that with those involved in the package he was supposed to deliver.
The story continues to be a good story with lots of potential. But still no backstory on how he got cursed in the first place. In this story as he pursues the curse he finally makes the decision about whether his life is more important than those of others as he defends an innocent.
I still like the potential of the story and think it has a lot of room to grow, as in this story they hint at who could possibly be the big bad guy of the story.
The cover art for this book is a little reminiscent of another caped crusader who works at night, but is well done nonetheless. Putting the hero in a classic hero pose as he travels via rooftop.
The interior art for this story continues the same excellence as the previous book, showing the emotions and details that make the reader understand exactly what is going on and how they are feeling.
