Review: Bloodthirsty #1

BloodthirstyThe comics’ medium is an excellent platform for storytelling, as it addresses just as many or more issues than books, movies and magazines. They have had comics like the Pride of Baghdad, which actually shows the 1st Iraq War through the eyes of animals. They have graphic novel collections like March, which give an eyewitness view to Civil Rights Movement. Comics have even gone into biographies, with excellent hardcovers like Andre the Giant.

One of the most recent events in America’s history to not be explored in the comics medium as one would hope is Hurricane Katrina and the destruction it elevated on the South and definitely some of our readers. The movies and TV mediums definitely has explored these events, most notably Treme, being the most inclusive. The comics medium, not so much, as I can only remember the miniseries, Nola, being the only one, and it was used as device of the origin story than catalyst for the main storyline. Other than that, it rarely has been used until I read Bloodthirsty.

Bloodthirsty as Previews explains is about:

Coast Guard veteran, Virgil Lafleur, who struggles daily with the hardships of a post-Katrina New Orleans. But when his younger brother’s murder leads him into a vortex of intrigue, corruption, and violence, Virgil becomes obsessed with bringing the killers to justice and exposing the horrific secret hiding beneath the Mississippi.

Virgil serves as the narrator for the story as it takes you from the day he found his parents dead in their childhood home and fast forwards 10 years later, as he breaks down how the insurance companies have taken advantage of New Orleans natives, and a big company has bought up all the land. Virgil, like many of New Orleans dwellers, have decided to leave the city, which is exactly when he gets the call that his brother has been killed. This sends Virgil on the hunt for who killed his brother and why they did it.

Altogether, this tale already reminds me so much of In the Garden of Good and Evil, but has a flavor all its own. The story by Mark Landry, unfolds at a steady pace but one that I already feel will more than satisfy the reader. The art by Ashley Witter is really the star here, as it feels so visceral and definitely will have me looking for more of her work. Overall, an excellent beginning to a promising story, supported by extraordinary illustrations, makes for a killer debut.
