Spiritman Daily Dose 249 - Review by a prison chaplain and comic fan...
When I first received my copy of Spiritman I approached it with my usual amount of skepticism when picking up a new comic for the first time. I found the cover art to be compelling and then flipped through the pages to test out the artwork inside and to my satisfaction it was very well drawn, albeit in grayscale. The grayscale does not remotely subtract from the feel of the comic book however as it is very well drawn and well presented.
The story of the main character is also compelling in terms of the curious situation he finds himself in from the beginning of the story. It is not the typical comic book conflict which breathes a bit of fresh air into the story. Throughout the beginning of this story we are presented with a damsel in distress character, the quintessential diabolical and mysterious nemesis, and a growing sense of conflict. The twist at the end of this first issue will definitely have avid comic book readers coming back for more. I am certainly looking forward to the next issue.
The superhero of the story, the titular Spiritman, is unique and fresh. He possesses unique abilities that, while reminiscent of other superheroes, are not in any way, shape, or form direct or even indirect copies of them. The unique way he relates to the main character is also something fresh and unexpected.
All said, Spiritman has the makings of a great comic book and seeing a comic book with Christian overtones and a compelling story hit the market is a refreshing change. I am excited to see Where the adventure goes next.
