Jazmin – The prospect of a good Etrigan story (especially one not in the form of a TV show) left me palpating for months! This comic is well written and drawn and I liked every panel. Demon Knights definitely delivers. It sticks to the origin of Jason Blood perfectly and throws you right into the fray of his time on Earth as an immortal while he travels with Madame Xanadu. I have nothing to say for this book other than you should go buy it. 4 out of 5 Nerdskulls.
Brandon – Demon Knights was a book I was unsure about, but I picked it up on a whim. Very happy that I did. We’ve got Madame Xanadu and Jason Blood roaming the country side. As they hit a small town they run into none other than Vandal Savage. Not sure if he’s going to be a permanent add to the book, but for now I’ll just enjoy the ride while he’s here. Looks like the demon Etrigan has something going on behind Jason Blood’s back, which could make things very interesting. If that’s not enough to keep you reading, it looks like Vandal Savage and Etrigan are throwing down with dragons in issue two. Need I say more? 4 out of 5 Nerdskulls.
Jim – I will state this with every review I write for the DC Relaunch, I’m a Marvel guy so I know very little of the DC world beyond the heavy hitters (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, etc.), and even to that end I have not kept up with their latest story lines. I found the recent relaunch extremely enticing in that I might find a better connection with these characters. To put it bluntly, the book was alright. The set-up could be very intriguing with Madame Xanadu and Jason Blood arriving in a small out-of-the-way village that just happens to be the target of wrath brought upon by the Questing Queen and Mordru. But it certainly took a long boring route to get to the interesting parts of the book, the last three or four pages. I did like the coincidental meeting of Vandal Savage, Sir Ystin, Al Jabr and Exoristos. Oh yeah and Etrigan finally makes an appearance at the end (possibly eluding to a double cross with Xanadu against Jason). I’d say we’ll see, but I’d rather spend my money on a number of other New 52 books. I give this book 2 out of 5 Nerdskulls.
