Dealing with the afterlife is always an interesting idea. And I like this different kind of mythology surrounding the dead.
What happens when Clare dies? She has the opportunity to join the Death Vigil “in their ongoing war against the ever-growing power of the Primordial Enemy!”
Don’t be thrown by that goofy blurb. This book is really worth reading.
The characters are interesting. I love Sam, Clare, Bernadette, James, and Mia and would read more about these characters just because. The author did a good job of bringing them alive.
The mythology surrounding the veilrippers was really interesting – how each one is different and is tied to each person.
The art is great and fits the tone of the book perfectly. The monsters were well-designed, creepy, and Cthulhu-like.
And it made me laugh. Out loud. Several times. That’s always good.
I really didn’t see anything negative about the book. The story was interesting, but it was the characters that drove it.
I’ll be looking forward to more of these.
Thanks to NetGalley and Image Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.
