Normally I would do a good, bad, summary but this book is a bit different. Honestly, it’s good. I enjoyed the story so far. It doesn’t say issue 1 on it, but it’s written as an issue 1. From what I can tell, it was on Kickstarter back in July. This was a gift to me from a friend so I’m not sure if it came from that or not because I also saw mention of crowdfunding back in 2018. The story is really enjoyable. Something bad is coming and only Merilee seems to have any knowledge that the bad isn’t over after the initial occurrence. The synopsis is a bit of a spoiler for future issues that the bad is frost giants...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Belial #2

Belial is a 32 page action adventure hell comedy about the original creator of Hell. Lucifer has taken his domain from him, and after centuries of wasting away in a crummy bar he’s had enough! Now, with his impish cohort Linc and bar manager/former general Mammon, he seeks to take his powers back from the Four Horsemen and usurp Lucifer to once more be the ruler of all Hell!

Co-created by Shaun Barbour and Chuck Pineau this is more than just a comedic take on Hell. This is a chance for both creators to bring their sense of fun to comics, to temporarily ignore the shitstorm that is our world right now, and just laugh and enjoy.

If you read my review the other day, you’ll know that I very much enjoyed Issue #1 and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on Issue #2...

He must fight his way back to the throne. He will face off against the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and Lucifer himself to do so.

The Good:

This is the first comic that I’ve read in probably six months or more. Between Covid and life, I just haven’t felt like diving into anything because I feel as if I should review everything. I guess that comes from ten plus years of reviewing...
