Review: Resurrectionists: Near-Death Experienced
Are you near-death experienced? Framed architect-turned-thief Jericho Way has discovered he’s a Resurrectionist, one of a select group of people who can not only remember their past lives, but become them. Two groups are now after his services—the Sojourn corporation, which wants to exploit his powers for mysterious purposes, and a motley crew of modern-day tomb robbers who have been trying to pull the same impossible heist for 3,000 years—and if Jericho joins them, he may steal back his own future
“How can you know who you are, if you don’t know who you’ve been?” Such a simple notion is what’s behind Resurrectionists: Near-Death Experienced, a brilliant, and at times intricate and complex story written by Fred Van Lente. Throw in some Egyptian mythology and brief bursts of time travel too. That odd yet brilliant combination gives this book an action packed story that’s very entertaining.
The artwork by Maurizio Rosenzweig and Moreno Dinisio is contrast of light and dark, bland and colorful. There is a degree of realism and short, vibrant bursts of surrealism. Blending in with the real world, are scenes of Egypt that are used aid to the idea of the Resurrectionists story. That aids the story, and weaves in the artwork in a tapestry of a world.
