Hexed # 2 (Boom! – Nelson / Rios) Blood. Theft. Sex. Magic. All elements are present in this “don’t miss” second installment! The occult thief Lucifer has gone through the Corpse Door. Between the covers of this issue both you and her will find out what lies on the other side! A brand new series by Michael Alan Nelson, the critically acclaimed author of FALL OF CTHULHU, and hot new art talent Emma Rios!
Calling all Buffy / Angel / X-Files fans! You know that slump you are in, here is the series you are missing. This second issue rocked just as hard as the first! So far, Hexed is one of the best new series of 2009!
“Luci”, in her quest to have a quiet life and get out from under the thumb of an occult crime lord, uncovers an artifact with the power over life and death. Tough luck Luci, “quiet” isn’t coming anytime soon!
This books explodes with talent! Michael Alan Nelson writes a very palatable and enjoyable blend of horror and action. He is able to balance narrating a detailed plot and having just the right amount of unknown factors, enough to intrigue the reader but not enough to drive us away.
Emma Rios, a Spanish illustrator and a relative newbie to the comic scene, has exceptional art! Her forms and colors help draw the reader into the story. Her style has obviously been influenced by the manga clique, but it has enough personality to stay relatively unique. Really, if you can make someone fighting and demon while crawling out of a corpse look gorgeous, then you must be a top notch artist. Years from now, the industry will look back and see Hexed as her breakout series. If I were you, I’d get your now!
