This is a brand new comic from the maker of Heavyweight Messiah. It was sent to me by the creator and writer of the book, Benito Andino III. Big thank you to Benny for sending this to me. I thought it was really good.
Now, while the artwork may not be so much “my style” of art that I normally gravitate towards, it is still good artwork. Very style specific to the artist.
But, honestly, it’s the story that I dig so much. This is a tale of revenge…no…vengeance. Revenge is for suckers. Vengeance is justice. Justice that circumvents the conventional laws and systems.
And I love that about this story.
Here we have a man who decides to dole out justice to a perpetrator that killed three kids. A pedophile that he believes CANNOT be rehabilitated. But, our friendly neighborhood vigilante has a darker side. There’s a whole other person in his head. They talk. They argue. And they work together to accomplish certain goals.
Truly a fascinating glimpse into the mind of a killer…or justice seeker…or psycho…??? We don’t really know yet. This is only the first issue. But it’s a good one.
Now, I read it digitally and I have to say, I really loathe reading digitally. I much, much prefer a hard copy. Especially for comic books. I feel I personally follow the story better if I can see the whole page at one time. On my devices, I only get about half the page at a time. So, for me, that makes it a little harder to read. And even with THAT issue, this story was still intense and gripping.
If you get the chance and you like bloody vigilante stories, grab this. Immediately. You won’t want to miss out.
