Review: The Immortal Nadia Greene #2-1

The Immortal Nadia Greene #2

Knowing that you are living on borrowed time is a prescient situation for most of us. Throughout my life, there have been some close calls. Growing up in New York City, depending on where you live, your life may have an expiration date. Definitely, when I was in the military, I have been on some missions where I felt that power of attorney I signed was for a good reason.

In recent news, the death of Kobe Bryant has caused many people in my age group to question our own mortality. His death has shown all of us just how swift and arbitrary death is. Truly no one is promised one more second than is allotted each of us. In the 2.1 issue of The Immortal Nadia Greene, we find Nadia at the age of 22 still proving to be elusive to the Reapers

We find Hermes trying to talk down the other reapers including Odin, as he sees disaster looming by challenging Nadia. We also find Nadia and her friends sharing a lunch, actually enjoying life as young adults but in Purgatory, until they are interrupted by Reapers. As a fight between one of the mightiest reaper, Anubis and Nadia break out, one which Anubis uses to test Nadia’s skills. By chapter’s end, Morrigan intervenes and asks for Nadia’s help, for a bigger crisis.

Overall, an exciting second issue that continues our adventures with these wonderful characters. The story by Jamal Campbell is elating and well developed. The art by Campbell is stunning. Altogether, an installment which builds on the stellar debut issue.

Review: The Immortal Nadia Greene #1

The Immortal Nadia Greene

Every day you live your life. You fight to live another day. Each moment is precious and every moment is fleeting. This fight becomes even more insurmountable when the world acts as if you don’t exist. As if your life doesn’t matter and concepts such as color blindness become more pervasive in fear of having these difficult conversations.

When it comes to those protected classes which have suffered indignities, the world rather shies away from these atrocities.  This has never been clearer when it came to victim shaming in the #MeToo Movement. How would one battle, that very thing that looks to extinguish their light, and ultimately, their existence? In the debut issue of The Immortal Nadia Greene, we meet a hero who fights Death… quite literally.

We meet Nadia as she suffers in silence in a coma while her parents watch on in agony. Meanwhile, she experiences an out of body occurrence where she enters Limbo and meets Hel, a Reaper, and her guide to the underworld. Fast forward to fifteen-year-old Nadia, still in Limbo and a well-worn warrior who fights Reapers, much to their dismay. Nadia is not the only human in Limbo, as we meet her housemates, Jay and Hayley. By chapter’s end, Nadia faces a tribunal looking to remove her from Limbo, as she has broken the last straw with Hel.

Overall, an engaging debut issue that offers a complex world with diverse and immaculately crafted characters. The story by Jamal Campbell is exhilarating and smart. The art by Campbell is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that is unique and challenges genre norms in the most exciting ways.
