I'll be honest. There are times when I read a comic and don't have the slightest idea what to make of it in terms of writing any sort of review. That can be me having a bad day, a fault with the comic or something in between. Certain comics have also been known to fill me with an "eh, it's OK" reaction, which also doesn't leave much to talk about. What I'm trying to get at is that I didn't understand this comic on a very fundamental level, but just in case that was purely my fault I'm going to read it again. Don't worry, this won't add any time to your reading of this review today, linear time being what it is and all. Yeah, that didn't help. Bits of it made more sense, sort of, but this comic was screaming out for a set-up or prologue of some sort. Gather round, I'm going to try and explain it now despite not understanding it, which is always funny. Things start off with a warlock of some sort escaping from hell. This happens on a page with word balloons and images facing in all sorts of directions for no reason that I could see. Next we see that our hero escaped because he didn't want to dance for a demon, and maybe all these images turned around are supposed to depict the path out of hell as the warlock keeps changing forms. Maybe. Next we learn that our hero is owed a favor from the moon, but that she can't help him now. We also get all sorts of symbols and their translations scattered all over the place, usually meaning one word each. Then I thought that we were headed for a bit of a linear story when the demon orgy started, but there's instantly a two page spread showing four pages of a comic, decapitations and a cry for it all to be animated, which lost me forever. And why would there be no fucking at a demon orgy? Maybe we just missed that part. I did enjoy the art and some of the random images and think that there's some potential here, but on the whole you'd need a better brain than mine to figure it all out. Here's hoping that he keeps the series going, as I'm really looking forward to reading a "previously" recap at the start of #2...
