Review: Hope

In the battle between good and evil, things are never really black and white as many people would like to believe. As there is no physical markers that one sees that would automatically tell you what intentions that person possesses. As an avid Star Trek fan, I always marveled at how the franchise, no matter which series you talked about dealt with social issues. The one episode from the original series, that has stuck with me to today, and really doesn’t feel dated at all, is “Let That Be Your Battlefield.

The story revolved around a centuries old war between two alien races, where they simply hated each other because of the side of the face where they have certain colors. The magnitude of what Gene Roddenberry was telling with one particular story cannot be underscored, as it still rings true today, that race is a construct and racism itself is an idea which is thought not inherited. It is always interesting when fiction creeps these ideas in to the reader’s subconscious, and it is always interesting to get into fiction, where these things are more obvious. In Lovern Kindzierski and John Bolton’s Hope, the world of Shame is continued on with this installment, as Hope looks to be reincarnated into a human body.

We are brought to Shame’s castle, where most of her demons have been vanquished, as Merritt looks for anyone looking to do harm to Grace and Hope.  As they leave the castle, they make their way down the rod to safer pastures, as though the demon hoard seems t be gone for good, one can never be sure. As we soon find out that Shame and her evil witch, Mother Virtue are hunting for Hope. By book’s end,a new enemy has emerged, as our heroes race to stop them before they can fulfill their promise.

Overall, the book is if HR Giger and Alejandro Jodorowsky worked in the medieval world in a battle between good and evil. The story by Kindzierski is exciting, action packed and unfolds likes well won action adventure. The art by Bolton feels visceral and can be in any museum. Altogether, a graphic novel which engulfs the reader into this magical world and gives fantasy fiction fans a grand tale.
