Comic Review: Descender #1

Descender #1
Written by Jeff Lemire
Illustrated by Dustin Nguyen
Lettered by Steve Wands
Cover by Dustin Nguyen
Image Comics
Release Date: March 4, 2015
Cover Price: $2.99

I took a break from my usual horror reads this week to dip into a bit of sci-fi with Descender #1 by Jeff Lemire from Image Comics. I have absolutely no regrets for that decision.

First of all, take a good, close look at that cover. See that? Yep, that’s watercolor and pencil, and it isn’t just on the cover — it makes up every single page of this book.

Real watercolor and pencil.

Monomyth #2
Written by Siike Donnelly
Art by Eric Ninaltowski
Colors by PeeJay Catacutan, Teo Gonzalez
Letters by Steve Wands
OSSM Comics
Release Date: August 27, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

It seems like just yesterday I was reviewing the premier issue of this three-issue miniseries. Tempus fugit, right? But I am quite happy to be able to write up Mononmyth #2 for your reading pleasure. And where I thought that some pieces to the story were missing in the previous comic, this issue fills in a lot of the blanks. Spare me a few minutes and I’ll tell you all about it.

This issue begins further back than last time, back to time where we witness the archangel Uriel conversing with an unknown scribe. Unlike a common mortal scribe, however, this one’s transcriptions can be brought to life. And the consequences thereof are soon to be an issue, though it is not yet revealed in what way. I will say that once the scribe is identified, the reader is much more aware of the situation and the dangers inherent in his abilities.

Monomyth #1
Written by Siike Donnelly

OSSM Comics
Release Date: July 23, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Ever wonder what would happen if you took one of the oldest stories around and turned it on its side? That’s exactly what Monomyth #1 is doing to the story of Adam and Eve. Changing key parts of a story to deliver an entirely different outcome is nothing new. There’s even a genre called alternative history just for that sort of thing. But taking a fundamentally Christian tale and altering it? That’s something you don’t see too often.

Beginning with the War in Heaven is a fitting way to start this comic, mostly since the fallen angels are the ones long believed to have precipitated the fall of man. However, this version of the war turns out slightly different and the bad guy in this story isn’t the one you might expect. Ever wonder what might have changed if Eve had not bitten from the forbidden fruit? What if the first couple had not been banished from Eden? All of these questions are answered to help build the foundation of what is to be the Monomyth storyline.
