Review: Death or Glory #1

DeathOrGlory_01-1

Meet Glory, raised off the grid in a convoy amid truckers—the last men and women fighting for true freedom on the American open road. Now, in order to pay for her beloved dying Father’s surgery, Glory has three days to pull off four dangerous cross-country heists with mob killers, crooked cops, and a psycho ex-husband all out to bring her in or die trying.

This new ongoing series examines our dwindling freedoms and the price paid by those who fight for an untethered life, in this special double-sized first issue with 40 pages of story!

Death or Glory #1 packs a wallop in this premiere issue.  It kicks off with a strange mix of mob ethics and a triple homicide. And that’s before we get to the title character Glory. Writer Rick Remender brings things together quickly as segments intersect as the issue progresses. There’s a lot here but underneath it all it sticks to its themes and asks questions. One stands out; What is the cost being truly free?

Artist Bengal brings his impressive art style for the series. With a focus on details the issue has an Americana feel to it. The issue’s style mixes a bit of classic and modern which too ties into its themes and the American concept of the free rebel. The details are fantastic with each panel telling a story and adding to Remender’s dialogue. Each character and location is easily understood by the visuals. Bengal manages to keep the action with some polished car chases, as Glory tries to save someone she cares for and pull off… well, read the comic.

The first issue is all about its personality and underlying themes. This is a comic with a focus on what it wants to say and what it wants to project. And all of that together comes together for a hell of a lot of fun.
