It kind of speaks to just how nuts this series is when the third issue kicks off with a rumble in a New Orleans graveyard between a coven of witches and a horde of zombies. Throw in an angelic bodyguard and a cowboy wizard and all bets are off.
Cassian Steele, the werewolf kingpin, has set a very enticing price on the heads of those witches, in hopes of keeping the news of his newborn son hush-hush. And it appears The Bone Wrangler, a wizard with a penchant for enchanted trinkets, looks to be Cassian's best hire yet, since ol' Boney's undead ruffians have put a serious hurt on the witches. So much so in fact that Barnabus and the coven have to retreat and lick their wounds--and prepare for a changing of the guard, so to speak.

But Bone Wrangler didn't finish the job, which leaves the door open for a warlock by the name of Malcolm Drake, who has eyes for the Eye of Fate, the infernal device used to see the future of Cassian's would-be heir. Considering the lengths Cassian has gone to so far to keep things in check regarding his son, even going so far as to incapacitate his wife, the Eye is practically a bargain.

This series has, so far, played out like a violent, fantastical soap opera. With the atmospheric backdrop of New Orleans, every supernatural creature imaginable short of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, there's little to complain about regarding Kiss Me, Satan. If I have one gripe, it's that there has been no followup on Barnabus' relationship and arrangement with Heaven, since he's serving as bodyguard as a way to earn his way back into God's good graces. Maybe it's simply that I would love to see the return of Jules, the impish angel who struck the deal with Barnabus in the first place.

Oh well, two more issues to go and a heckuva lot more action. Can't wait.

  1. I have to hang my head in shame and admit I am not a huge comic book fan, but Gef your reviews make me want to start a collection. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I think this series sounds pretty dandy!

    1. You should give some a try. Most comics can be bought as digital copies. That is how I read them. Next time I see some free ones I'll let you know.
