Life is a story. Her's is being rewritten.
Still reeling from the sudden collapse of her cover, Manhattanite sorceress Esperanza tries to rebuild. But everyone in her life is saying she's done and said things that never happened -- terrible things. Before she knows it, she's becoming someone entirely different. Someone she used to be, once upon a time.
Life is full of ch-ch-ch-changes in this urban fantasy from Eisner-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl, Kim & Kim) and artist Becca Farrow (Ladycastle).

    Doom Rocket - Brendan Hodgdon Nov 2, 2018

    Sex Death Revolution #1 is certainly a slow-burner, and while the fact that it is a double-length issue does ameliorate that somewhat it is a very talky, context-establishing opening chapter. But the final product is more than worthwhile, as the team makes use of that extra space to firmly and capably establish the ideas and emotions at the core of their story. Sex Death Revolution is beautifully realized; it immerses usinits story of change and its world of academic witchery, demanding our presence and rewarding our attention. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - John Schaidler Nov 1, 2018

    "Sex Death Revolution" #1 is not the action-packed, unbridled hijinks of Visaggio's famous Kims. In fact, it definitely operates on an altogether different level, but if you spend some time with it, you will be rewarded with big ideas and the promise of even bigger things to come.

    AIPT - Zachary Whittaker Apr 7, 2020

    Dealing with topics such as identity and the events that shape us as a person, 'Sex Death Revolution' feels like both a surreal supernatural story and a deeply personal tale. Read Full Review

    The pace is slow, but that's not necessarily in a negative thing, I'm just glad that the creators (or the publisher?) chose to combine two issues into the first or I wouldn't have gotten enough out of the first issue to pull me in.

    The writer has an impressive vocabulary and expects much from the reader with regards to learning and comprehending the rules to black magic. I'm flipping back and forth, trying to find where rule four was defined but I can't find it. An appendix would be extremely helpful and interesting, or at least more strategic placement of the rule definitions for future reference.

    There seems to be a clear relation between Esperanza's transition and how reality is warping, what a cool idea! Certainl more
