Cover & Solicit 3/5


Again this is one of those series that I wish they would have done something awesome with the cover. Again I almost didn't pick this issue up because the cover really doesn't scream out to you. I was also a little hesitant to pick it up on the solicit alone, as I currently don't really like DC's Dark series which kinda deals with similar subject matters. Luckily I read a review online about the series and decided to give it a try.

Art, Colors & Inking 2/5


I'm disappointed in the art of this book. Image and other independents I understand aren't able to get the highest quality artists, but I would have figured it would be easier to get new and upcoming artists. While the art is not horrible and I was really hoping it would grow on me resulting in a higher score it didn't. The coloring while at times show vibrancy also gets a little muddied at times.

Layout & Flow 5/5


For a first issue I believe they did a good job of introducing you to this new world of Demons and Repo men (and woman). Nothing is really over the top or hard to understand and the pacing seems OK and not too rushed. Sometimes with mini-series they writer tries to put too much info into the book because they have limited time, no so here.

Story 4/5


The entire book from art and coloring to the story is done by JM Ringuet. This issue opens with our team of Repo going to a church to get a preacher to "Repossess" his body and force the demon possessing him to leave. After a quick battle with a demon dog, they return to the Dee Agency, where they question the difficult cases that have been turning up lately. The team is then given a case to find a NYC bankers daughter who he believes is possessed because she ran of to Vegas. During their investigation the team is attacked by demon who exposes himself of his own free will, something that normally requires excising. Believing there is something bigger going on the team sets out to get to the bottom of it. Ringuet does a great job of getting you involved in his universe and keeps you interested in what's happening next. For example when one of the team is being crushed by the demon, you already like the guy and don't want him to die. I enjoyed the issue enough to continue reading it, and will definitely be picking up the next issue.

Verdict 3.4
