Title: Kiss Me Satan #2
Writer: Victor Gischler
Artist: Juan Ferreyra
Publisher: Dark Horse
Synopsis: After an attack from a vampire maid, Barnabus Black and the witches flee their hiding spot in a cheap Big Easy motel. Barnabus says he knows a safe place, and as they cross the historic Garden District Cemetery, zombies erupt from their graves and attack the group. A new hit man arrives who is known as THE BONE WRANGLER, and his power is control of the undead.
Our Thoughts: The extremely promising first issue of Kiss Me Satan made for a bloody good surprise. While having read the second issue, I can assure you that there is no let down from the initial book. Vampires, Werewolves, Witches and the Undead run rampant all throughout these pages.
Victor Gischler’s writing in this werewolf mafia book has been nothing short of phenomenal. Its action-packed and really a demonic delight. He gets to play in a sandbox full of wonderful monsters and you can tell he is really enjoying it! The story, however, also has many layers. The unpredictability keeps readers on their toes, as well as makes it hard to put the book down.
The art by Juan Ferreyra is top notch. With all the chaos in the book, there is plenty of room for Ferreyra to really unleash the beast on readers. Keep an eye out for the gunshot scene, which is the highlight of the book, and where Ferreyra shines.
2013 has been an incredible year for horror mini-series. Victor Gischler and Juan Ferreyra are proving that Kiss Me Satan falls into the top tier of 2013.
