Award-winning playwright and This American Life personality SEAN LEWIS teams with red-hot artist BENJAMIN MACKEY for an all-new ONGOING SERIES! Dexter-style action collides with a Preacher-esque sensibility in this crime/horror series for mature readers. Blaise, Lucy, and Sebastian discover a Holy War is erupting and they, unwittingly, are the next generation of Saints poised to fight for a heaven that God has abandoned. The occult rises in a spectacular, action-packed first issue crammed full of heavy metal, sex, and deadly one-liners.
Not being American I have not a bloody clue who Sean Lewis is or if indeed, he is a ‘personality’ but Mackey’s art is good, is somewhat held back by the cartoony style which a lot of artists these days have adopted.
Problem is by around page 10 I was so crushingly bored by it all. I found the internal narration annoying, the dialogue terrible and the plotting so tedious that I genuinely struggled to give even half a toss about getting to the end of the book.
Saints is a nice idea badly, not to mention tediously, done. The best thing I can say is the art is alright at times and draw this to an end because I feel I’ve just wasted my time reading this.
