The images and artwork are top notch, but the story could use some work. That's a mini-review for the whole thing that encapsulates my response to it. We begin our story with a focus on righteous do-gooder Adam Cahill, a member of the Order of Solomon who is bound by his ancient bloodline to protect the Earth from Armageddon.
Evil must find the Seven Seals and bring about the end of the world; good must stop them. I really enjoyed what happens along the way, and the writers do a good job of twisting expectations, but considering how long this tome is and how many pages it has stuffed in it, there should be more story points packed in along the way. There's nothing wrong with simplicity, but I wanted to see more character interactions, more from the side of evil instead of them just being evil for evil's sake.
Why do they want to take over the world? They seem to be having a grand ol' time in Hell. What is at stake if people die? Won't they go straight to Heaven to be with God? Isn't this a good thing overall? I don't want to spoil anything, but there are moments where something bad happens, but then it didn't happen. It was a nice change up at the time, but it was destroyed by a quick fix. Not quite a deus ex machina, but disappointing.
So the good outweighs the bad with the FHA graphic novel from Titan Publishing. There are great visuals, a fast-paced story, and some cool ideas on an old story.
Recommended for the like-minded Goths out there. I give it a solid 7 out of 10.
Is anyone looking forward to picking this up? Anyone know about it but on the fence about getting it? Sound off below.
