Review: Satanic Hell TPB


Broke and directionless, the three members of the metal band Satanic Hell arrive in Texas for a chance tour set up by a mysterious promoter. Death Priest, Dante, and Exodus quickly find trouble in the bizarre world of Texas, now controlled by a council of religious fanatics. The quixotic tour is Satanic Hell’s last chance to keep their rock’n roll dreams alive but doing so means going through their own version of hell on earth. Can three guys in a metal band save the Holy State from itself and survive? This is the complete seven-issue series of the metal band’s raucous tour through the dystopian Lone Star State. 202 epic pages with added bonus material!

An odd, but humorous mix of religious extremism, metal, and tongue in cheek humor. If you are fan of heavy metal, this is defiantly a book you will enjoy. That being stated if you are religious in any, your odds of enjoying this book aren’t high.  Which is sad, cause you will miss on fairly entertaining read.  The writing is superb, as it has an equal balance of misfit rebel characters, and religious zealots.

Each artist manage to bring something to different to the series. Yet despite having three artists, they seemed to different parts of the art. However they don’t tell you who did what.All the art is decent throughout though.
