After the death of Dancy, Maisie and bird are hanging at the Old live Cemetery in Selma, 23974Alabama, they come across an old lady who bird sees as a potential client to con, with Dancy gone Maisie now has to provide for herself without Dancy and performing mediums is one the ways she does for cash. Things get interesting when we jump to Carson and Hunters trailer the two are clearly psychopaths, like a scene in a horror movie the two of them are covered in blood, the dialog between them is interesting it seems that they have plans for Maisie, hopefully in the upcoming issues we see what exactly what it is.

When Maisie and bird reach the old lady form the cemetery’s house, she begins to setup for the medium, as they begin Brid notices that the old lady has a cat which is a big no no for him/her and con ends up a disaster with bird revealing its self, lady freaks out and calls Maisie a witch and throws the both of them out of her house, knowing that the old lady will spread the word of their con the two of them leave the town.

The issue ends on a cliffhanger when two unknown werewolves track down Hunter and Carson, and begin to what looks like an ambush attack thinking the two are just humans.

Conclusion: Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, and the Bird #2 is dark and witty like some of other Dark horse comics, while I haven’t read a lot the previous Alabaster series, I had to do some back tracking to catch up to speed, and as of right now I can’t really say anything bad or good, so I’ll continue to follow this series so can give this series the proper review in deserves.
