Magic is real, and hungry—trapped in ancient texts and artifacts, only a few who discover it survive to fight back. Detective Sal Brooks is a survivor. Freshly awake to just what dangers are lurking, she joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad: Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum. Together they stand between humanity and magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.
"Webs" is the second episode of Bookburners Season 2, presented by Serial Box Publishing. This serial will unfold in 13 episodes.
Although not as enjoyable as CREEPY TOWN, WEBS did an excellent job of advancing the plot of team two's explorations of magic, and offered a brief glimpse into the history of the Bookburners (or Societas Librorum Occultorum, as I suppose it's called).
In my opinion, WEBS just didn't have the laugh out loud funny moments as CREEPY TOWN did, but it was fun in its own way. As the team descended into the dissolved Team Four's headquarters, looking for something to help them fix their magical orb which was originally created by Team Four, they encountered magical creatures and obstacles, and watching them resolve those issues to get what they needed offered an interesting picture into each of their personalities.
I did have a bit of a hard time remembering who was who from episode one, but luckily, it was easy to flip back and catch up. WEBS is just a bit longer than CREEPY TOWN, but it's still a good length for somebody looking for something short and sweet to fill up an hour or so.
