Issue three of The Chair is the penultimate issue in the series and begins to reveal some interesting elements about the life of Sullivan. Throughout the series he insists that he is innocent of all of his crimes, but we are given glimpses at his life before prison.
With his execution looming, Sullivan is becoming desperate and The Warden will do nothing for him. His madness begins to build and we begin to see images of the day he was sentenced and then jump to even farther away past moments. We see what appears to be a young Sullivan being beaten by an older man, then images of Sullivan in military attire. In these images a man is saying that he has gone AWOL and needs to be stopped. We also see him within an ice cream truck convincing a young child to come into the back with him. All of these hint at a far darker past than Sullivan has been willing to share. He becomes violent and things take an even darker turn as the execution grows closer.
The Chair is a horrifically well done read and while this is my first time reviewing this specific issue I have read elements of the series before and watched the movie. This work is the perfect read for horror fans and the fourth issue will shock you. Make sure you pay close attention to everything in this issue because there are so many elements that will help you understand why the end is what it is.
