Kiss Me, Satan is a new series by Victor Gischler (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike—A Dark Place, Punisher MAX, X-Men) and Juan Ferreyra (Colder, Rex Mundi).
I’m really enjoying the story so far. It’s a very grown-up fairy tale story, but not too mature to have some fun. I get a very Dogma vibe, and since that’s one of my favorite movies, I take it as a good sign. All-in-all, the writing is engaging and fun, and I can’t wait to see how our ‘heroes’ get out of this one.
As for the art, it’s just perfect. Dark, saturated, intricate and, at times, disgusting. Oh yes, be warned that this comic is graphic. I’m loving the character designs and the ingenious way Ferreyra is able to capture the essence of a monster in a human face. For example, the werewolves actually kind of have dog-like faces when they’re human, allowing one to instantly recognize which mystical species you’re looking at.
The first issue was a fun, action-filled, supernatural ride, and I can’t wait for issue two!
Cassian Steele is the boss of the werewolf mafia in the Big Easy, and he’s got a problem. The old witch Verona knows his secret and has gone into hiding. Cassian wants her dead. So he sends out the word: An open contract. The first monster to dust Verona gets a big payday. What no one realizes is that Barnabus Black, a demon desperately trying to regain his halo, is her protection.
