If Simmons can flesh things out a bit more in future chapters, possibly making us understand the backstory of these demons/gods a bit better, the whole thing might hang together a bit better, but even if he just focuses on action for the remaining page count, this should be a diverting, viscerally entertaining series. It wont be much more than that though. The copycat style does tend to evoke an Ive seen this before response. Lets see if he can bring something a bit more unique than that. Read Full Review
So setting marketing concerns aside, the question is: did I enjoy this story? Unfortunately, I really can't say that I did. I did appreciate the mythology that Simmons begins to construct here, but the fact of the matter is that this is a story full of villains. There's no protagonist to cheer for. The Revenants are targeted for death by apparently corrupt and cruel forces, but the Revenants are just as distasteful as the "villains" of Simmons's plot. The script is devoid of a character that the reader can connect with, cheer for or from which s/he can derive any kind of amusement. That's a lot of corruption and villainy, sure, but for about five bucks for 42 pages of story and art, it didn't make for a satisfying read. Read Full Review
