★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)

QUICK REVIEW: Issue two of 'W0rldtr33' isn't as violent or bloody as the first. Still, it's no less terrifying as James Tynion IV trades gratuitous violence for more Hitchcockian suspense and tension. The mysterious naked killing machine only known as PH34R hasn't ventured too far from the crime scene where a teenager was influenced into going into a mass murder spree. Killers are evil, obviously, but now a podcaster (ugh) wants to get the scoop from the teen's home. Having established what PH34R is capable of, issue two will have readers on the edge of their seats waiting to see if she strikes again. It's a well-crafted story that feels like we haven't seen the worst of what's to come. The threat of the Undernet that hypnotizes its users into doing unthinkable acts might already be out of control and those who discovered it are racing against the clock to try and stop it.  Jordie Bellaire and Fernando Blanco do a magnificent job of creating a hauntingly tense atmosphere as PH34R prowls around the dark corners of the mass killer's house as the podcaster roams from room to room. It's as nerve-wracking as there is in horror comics. 'W0rldtr33' is an addictive new horror series that draws readers in, hooking them for good, and taking them on a journey of pure evil.
