Kiss Me, Satan 5 (January 2014)

I’ve never found Ferreyra’s art to be one of Kiss Me, Satan’s selling points. Gischler’s lunacy was always its brass ring. This issue, however, the art is what makes it work. There’s some good lunacy–Gischler seems to get how to use magic in a violent action story. With actual wonderment no less. But his final […]

Kiss Me, Satan 4 (December 2013)

I wish Gischler would just take his time. It’s a good issue–lots of nice developments, brisk pace–but in his rush, he leaves out a lot of things he could expand on. This issue doesn’t just have more information on lead Barnabus Black, it has some comic moments with his angel boss and some funny narration. […]

Kiss Me, Satan 3 (November 2013)

Uh oh, I was supposed to be paying attention to the awkward flirting between the lead character and one of the witches. Gischler tries so hard for chemistry between the two of them it’s nauseating. Actually, the way the girl swoons for the guy reminds of Jeph Loeb’s Superman/Batman. Otherwise, the issue’s reasonably okay. It’s […]

Didn’t the first issue have some really mediocre or bad narration from the protagonist? Gischler doesn’t make that mistake in this issue. It’s a lot of action–actually, I think it’s nonstop action at least for the witches and their mysterious protector. Gischler goes for humor with the witches and it works. His banter between the […]
