The Resurrectionists 1

Are you near-death experienced? Framed
architect-turned-thief Jericho Way has discovered he’s a Resurrectionist, one
of a select group of people who can not only remember their past lives, but
become them. Two groups are now after his services—the Sojourn corporation,
which wants to exploit his powers for mysterious purposes, and a motley crew of
modern-day tomb robbers who have been trying to pull the same impossible heist
for 3,000 years—and if Jericho joins them, he may steal back his own future!
From what I can gather from the first issue, the basic
premise is that reincarnation is a very real thing.  At least three of the characters that we were
introduced to have been reborn, previously being anything from an Egyptian
architect to warriors throughout history. 
The majority of this chapter focuses on one of character, the Egyptian
in another life currently now living as a thief.  During a heist to ironically steal a copy of
the Book of the Dead, he suddenly finds his mind filled with apparent memories
of a former life that have him questioning everything including his sanity.
The team of artists that came on board for this new
launch has given it a very solid start.  Whether
it was simple panel to panel flow or fast paced action, the artwork for both
lines and colors filled the pages beautifully. 
In particular, the near flawless transition of art from present day all
the way back to ancient Egypt was excellent.
I have to say, I am really digging the concept of this
book already.  It’s a pretty fresh new
storyline to enjoy, and kept me extremely interested the whole time.  There is a lot of room to work with in future
issues, which I would absolutely like to check out.  I am highly suggesting that everyone check
out this new title, as it has a lot of promise.
