ANGELICA BLACKSTONE is half-Greek god, half-vampire, and she's pissed! When she is brought back from the dead and given a new lease on life by monster hunter Liesel Van Helsing, Angelica joins a gang of Viking vampire junkies living in the underbelly of New York City. But she has a hell of an ax to grind with her absentee father, Hades, who she blames for her death. All hell is about to break loose!

    Much of this issue of Hellchild is setup.  We already know from the solicits for this issue alone that Hades' daughter is on her way back to the land of the living, so it's not much of a spoiler to know what happens by the end of the book.  The creative team introduces us to all the players quickly and efficiently while moving the story along at a solid pace.  We jumped right into the action and we're left craving more.  We're left with an upheaval in these characters' lives that is going to make waves.  Now what?

    Zenescope seem to be able to churn these types of books out on a whim and that's kind of what it this book feels like, just another book. This is a bit of a slap in the face for one of the hardest working guys, Pat Shand, in the comics business. Still, with quantity there must be quality. I would rather Shand remain on a team book rather than work a smaller cast, especially with a story that also feels a more than a little regurgitated. Read Full Review

    Comic Plug - Tanya Ruiter Mar 16, 2016

    Hellchild is a fast moving, plot-filled story that covers a lot of ground in a just a few pages. With a such a large variety of powers and paranormal beings it feels a little bit rushed but has the potential to gain it's momentum now that it has introduced its title character. Read Full Review
