Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
Crime doesn’t pay when you have the hands of demons and the feet of the devil! Trauma Comics is back to bring you Kung Fu Satanist #1, and it is a delightfully sinful treat. The artwork in this book is great. I really like Juliette’s style, because I think it fits the main concept so well. The colors at times were a little too dark, but it doesn’t take anything away from the book. I loved the scene with the head spinning around. The story itself was nicely done. Sanchez does a great job throwing the reader right into the action and then slowing things down to build what is to come. The book has a real grindhouse influence to it, and it shows on all levels. From the dialogue to the great fight/horror scenes, the team does a great job of capturing it all. This book is a fun read, something you can easily sit back and just enjoy without worrying about layers and layers of drama being poured down your throat. Check it out, I know I’m glad I did.
