Strange Embrace has been labeled a modern gothic psycho-sexual tortured romance and is not for the nervous.

I’m not too sure about the above description. Having only read the first issue, I can honestly say that I’m not sure what Strange Embrace is really all about. I can tell you that after reading the first issue, I want more!

Strange Embrace has a mysterious undertone in its opening story. As I said, I’m not sure what the mystery is, but it intriqued me enough to keep flipping the pages. However I can say that I think this series is going to be a psychological thriller.

This series and specifically the first issue introduces us to Sukumar, a young man who helps in his parents’ shop after school. There are two things that I picked up very quickly about this character. The first is that he is in a loving family dynamic relationship, and second, he’s somewhat of a loner since we don’t see any interaction with friends or class-mates.

While out making a delivery for the shop, Sukumar meets Alex, a strange man himself. Alex takes Sukumar into his world if only to introduce him to the fact that he is somehow “special” – just like him. And just when the story really starts pumping…the first issue is done and gone.

Who knows what the next issue brings, but if it has the same eerie undertones as the first, you will find me on my nice soft comfy couch breaking in the pages.

Strange Embrace #1 was written and illustrated by David Hine. It is published by Image Comics.
