In the interest of fairness, I should warn you all ahead of time that I am a life long, die-hard Green Bay Packers fan. With that being said, I can guarantee you that that will have NO bearing on my review and opinions of Seraph #1. I’ve read and reviewed three of the Top Cow Pilot Season titles today and I can honestly say, that this is the one that I liked the most. It’s by far the most original, with a very interesting concept created by Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs and fleshed out by writer Phil Hester. It’s a great blend of super heroics/the supernatural and, unfortunately, reality for some unfortunate people.

What I was most impressed about was that Briggs and Hester didn’t dig out the NFL Super Pro formula and just make the character a football star with a heart of gold that goes around righting wrongs. Although, on some level, that would’ve been awesome too.

The art was another pleasant surprise on this book. The team of penciler Jose Luis and Inker Sandro Ribeiro fit the book perfectly, giving it a gritty feel yet never going overboard with that style. The backgrounds and setting look great, the characters are easily identifiable, nice job all around by the art team. If this book goes to series, I hope they are able to keep them.

What I loved most about this comic was that it was something different. It really stands out from the rest of the Pilot Season titles, and it stands out from a lot of comics on the stands today. I highly recommend it. Just don’t tell the rest of the Packer fans that you heard it from me!
