Vampires, Werewolves and Demons: oh my! Oh my indeed, Nation! Believe it or not, we read a lot of comics, and once in a while comes along a series that hits you like a bus. Kiss Me Satan is definitely a bus of badass and Barnibus Black drives it.
This story takes place in New Orleans, where werewolves control the underworld. Not that Underworld, dude, the criminal one. From the first page the story hits the ground running with a foot chase from hell. With hell I mean a retrieval team these bad dudes whose whole purpose is to take targets back to hell. Barnibus Black is that target. Our anti-hero is undoubtedly in a messed up situation torn between two sides during his chase and still manages to have a heart to heart with an apparent angel who materializes from out of nowhere. Yeah, its that good. That’s the start of it and there is so much more to get into, any more will only ruin the bloody goodness of Kiss me Satan. There is this crazy looking old dame named Verona. She has this creepy all Seeing Eye. There is a mafia of badass werewolves who are not pleased with what she sees. It gets bloody fantastic from there.
I have to say my favorite part of this comic is the bullets. Especially when they meet with the head of a bloodthirsty werewolf. Juan Ferrayra is, for me, one of if not the best horror artist around. Victor Gischler’s original story full of rich character’s makes you want more. Kiss Me Satan is not only great storytelling it also has the amazing artwork. The amazing art and story dynamics makes this the ultimate in introductions for Dark Horse’s new Kiss Me Satan and an easy 5 out of FIVE on the Pastrami Nation scale. This is definitely one to watch, Nation. Till next time,cheers!
