    Throughout the series thus far Killadelphia has brilliantly shined a light on the racial inequality of America generally, but this issue and Jupiter's story is a sobering punch in the gut about the harsh realities of slavery and America's history"vampires notwithstanding. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is yet again a wonderful addition to the Killadelphia tale. The narrative alone is enough bang for your buck, but Alexander's artwork really make this worthwhile reading. Read Full Review

    Abigail has advanced to the next stage of her plan and if it works, she will plunge the whole city into darkness. The (undead) father-son combo of James Sr. and James Jr. are tracking Abigail and her followers but they may have been led right into a trap. Abigail's most terrifying follower, Jupiter, reveals his full background story and it is both heartbreaking and terrifying. Jupiter is using Abigail's influence to enact his own plan of vengeance and righteousness. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Oct 29, 2020

    Killadelphia #9 fleshes out the background of one of its major antagonists while slowly upping the stakes for its protagonists. With this issue, Jupiter falls into the stereotype of "antagonist with a righteous cause" that the X-Men's Magneto and Castlevania's Dracula also fits. I hope to see more of him in future episodes and see how the Sangsters deal with a nest of vampires. Read Full Review
