    I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this series, but I’ve got to say, after only one issue I’m hooked. It’s so unique and not like any of the other series out there right now. But at the same time some of the themes being used feel familiar. The end result is something that is both recognizable and fascinating. They did a good job starting off this series. We now have a good grasp of most of the players in this field, from the antagonists, protagonists, and even possibly a gray scale chara I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this series, but I’ve got to say, after only one issue I’m hooked.

The end result is something that is both recognizable and fascinating. They did a good job starting off this series. We now have a good grasp of most of the players in this field, from the antagonists, protagonists, and even possibly a gray scale character or two. Plus we even got a good idea of what can happen to the innocents caught in between.

    Style and Substance You can read this as a straight up monster hunting action/adventure tale set in 1920's Harlem. Or, you can read it as an extended metaphor about racism, and how racist attitudes can turn people into "monsters". Walker and Brown embrace what they call the "EthnoGothic", which is a way to manipulate and rethink horror and Gothic tropes to attack negative racial stereotypes.

Or, you can read it as an extended metaphor about racism, and how racist attitudes can turn people into "monsters". Walker and Brown embrace what they call the "EthnoGothic", which is a way to manipulate and rethink horror and Gothic tropes to attack negative racial stereotypes. In extended notes and a thoughtful essay at the end of this first issue Walker and Brown invite the reader to follow both paths, and that was an invitation I was happy to accept. The characters here are better developed than most, especially for a first issue. There are a lot of members of the Sangerye Family, and a fair number of them will demand and grab your attention right off the bat. While there is monster hunting it's not entirely clear at this point who or what the monsters are, why it has fallen to the Sangeryes to fight them, and what the end game might be. That said, the narrative overall and the individual scenes - comprising action, exposition, family conflict, and humor - promise a rich combination as the series develops. So, this struck me as a strong and intriguing beginning, with real promise that the series will become even more layered and engaging as it progresses. A nice start. (Please note that I had a chance to read a free ecopy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    Afrofuturistic comic book about monster hunters during the time of Harlem Rennaissance. Artwork is very beautiful, characters are charismatic and plot is enjoyable. On the other hand I hate "magical green serum" that can heal/buff people, it seems like every writer uses it (e. g. CODA) so it's super boring. Also after this issue I don't really understand the concept of monsters representing racism and how it is cured so easily. Hopefully they'll shed some light on it in the next issue.

    I'm really enjoying the character of Berg, with his big vocabulary and chill attitude. The color pallettes were dark and a bit monotone, but that also worked into the night setting and supernatural/horror theme.

    So excited for this. Issue one is a great introduction. Fighting Cthulhu-esque monsters during the Harlem Renaissance. Can't wait to see where future issues go.
