Comment: Once again Mr. Corben shows us his top notch artistic level and Jan Strnad a fresh, good old time horror story with haunting castle. The art is filled with small horrific details you can point out from walls of chambers. Majority of the pages has very small quantity of panels. Several scenes (including the castle itself) are built in 3D program to catch the best ancles and lighting. For character design he used also clay models (for example the face of an old man).
Jan Strand: The story was inteded as a one-shot (part 1), Jan Strnad said in a CBR interview, Jan Strnad Enters “Ragemoor”, dated Feb. 3, 2012.
