Review: Holy F*cked #1
If you’re looking for something new, hilarious and completely original, look no further. Holy F*cked is the comic for you. It’s an interesting blend of adult humour and a slice of life with a hint of adventure.
Set in Los Angeles, Jesus and Satan along with their friend Maria are leading happy lives. Jesus skates, Satan’s a housewife and Maria does charity work. However when word gets around that Jesus and Satan are expecting a baby, someone in Mount Olympus is angered by this news due to a tragic past event involving Jesus and he begins his journey to stop this pregnancy.
Written by Nick Marino, the comedic dialogue is consistent throughout. The tone is friendly, entertaining with the right amount of colloquial language. From panel to panel there wasn’t a moment I wasn’t laughing or smiling to myself.
Arruda Massa is the artist of Holy F*cked and it’s terrific. The art is exciting, fun and wild. It has a late 90’s/early 00’s Cartoon Network nostalgia feel to it. Moreover it’s fascinating to see a unique and modern portrayal of Satan and Jesus in terms of how they look and dress as well as how they speak.
In addition to the great comedic content and wonderful artwork, the characters are one of the best things about Holy F*cked. It’s intriguing to see bibliographical and mythological characters together which is another reason why it’s so innovative. Nonetheless there could be a little bit more about the characters as well as what they’re seen doing and saying since they feel a little unfamiliar.
On the whole, Holy F*cked is absolutely glorious and this is an awesome first issue. It’s fast pasted, lively and like I mentioned before, hilarious.
