Publisher’s Summary: “EXORSISTERS returns for a second arc! In this issue, Cate finds herself in a world where her mother saved her instead of selling her soul, while Kate has taken over Hell as its new ruler. Has Cate lost her “sister” again?”


Review

The continuation of the story picks up with the twinned-soul sisters in some sort of idealized version of what might be their wishes, only as dreamed up by some well-meaning celestials. The young women soon find things are not what they seem, and none of it is at all to their liking.

It is not hard to believe that eternal bliss was never their style, especially when there is no alcohol to be had. Despite the great beyond’s best intentions, what they really need is to just be together. Once that happens, then Kate and Cate can get around to doing whatever it takes to save all of creation from the evil First Shadow.

Exorsisters is as snarky a supernatural buddy story as could be asked for; the irreverent tone in Ian Boothby’s writing remains front and center in this second arc of the series as the stakes are ramped up. The artwork is sharp and punchy, full of bold lines and snappy color, and yet, it still manages to be serious when it needs to.

The Bottom Line

The Exorsisters are as delightful and cheeky as always while they find that Heaven is not at all to their liking, and still have time to grab a drink before saving the universe. No real surprises, but a satisfying romp.

Good Luck #1 Review

There is simply nothing like Good Luck. It has a truly original premises, an irresistibly endearing protagonist, and satisfying surprises at every corner. An absolute delight.

V. E. Schwab’s ExtraOrdinary #1 Review

ExtraOrdinary sets the stage of a tale of powered persons set in conflict with the world and each other. Each of them fully realized as individuals within a story that promises a depth beyond the usual comic fare.

Vinyl #1 (of 6) Review

Equally as brutal and disturbing as it is thought-provoking, Vinyl slathers the right kind of strange on thick. Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard's newest series is a discomforting must-read.
