REVIEW: "Outcast" by Robert Kirkman

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

Type: Graphic Novel, Comic Books, Demons, Exorcisms, Paranormal, Supernatural, The Demons are Coming the Demons are Coming!

About the Book: Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it! [Description from Netgalley.com]

My Review: Wow, this comic book had be obsessively flipping the pages, eager to find out what happened next. Maybe it was my obsession with the show Supernatural, or maybe that I studied a lot of early American history (and the witch trials that went along with it), but I find the idea of demons of possession fascinating. Scary as all get out, but fascinating.

Kyle is an Outcast, and he doesn't know what that means, but he knows that his blood can force demons out of a possessed person. And as one could guess, the demons are not too happy that he is aware of his abilities. I cannot wait to see where this series goes. I probably wouldn't have picked it up on my own, had they not sent it to me to review. But I would have definitely missed out on the start of something great. Can't wait to read more!

Cover Lovin': This cover doesn't give the reader much idea of what is going on, but it's certainly something that would grab the reader's attention if they saw it on the shelf.

Recommendation: For fans of darker comics and graphic novels. Kirkman is well known for his Walking Dead comics, so I'm sure fans of that would be happy to cross over to a new series as well.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). This is dark, creepy, and scary, but oh so good. I can't wait to see where this goes, and what an Outcast can really do!


Happy Reading!
