Elena is a truly messed up story, filled to the brim with questionable events. All of the main characters are unique and utterly weird.

Carl O’Malley is a man with a distorted idea of love.
In his childhood, he searched for others he could connect with, only to find himself unable to make friends with the living…
That is until Elena Dyer moved next door. A friendship unfolds but Elena’s past is one not even Carl could be ready to accept.AfterLightComics.com
The story of Elena is really quite something, for better or worse.
It truly does stem from human depravity and loneliness, but it doesn’t end with just pitiful suffering. No, Carl takes matters into his own hand and makes women into his playthings.
When we found out the reason behind his actions, you feel slightly bad for him. Not that he’s a good person, far from it.
However, he does have some redeemable qualities. They’re few and far in between, but they’re there.
As for the other character, Elena, she’s also wicked in multiple ways.
I imagine this is what happens when two serial killers meet without knowing it. Just pure chaos and death.
This story isn’t for me, because it’s a bit too weird. However, I do recognize it’s worth a read to some horror enthusiasts.
It’s by no means bad, nor is the art lacking. It’s just different and sometimes we can’t handle different. Sometimes for good reasons, other times not so much.
Final thoughts: Definitely worth to check this one out if you like some disturbing horror!
