Comics Monster # 2: Crescent City Magick – Review

Having discovered Michael L. Peters’ art on the web and
enjoying his Unbound comic from Image, I was happy to see a new project from
him in the form of his new book, Crescent City Magick

The story revolves around the character Clayton who is a bit
of a drifter and ultimately encounters a witch named Julia. Clayton moves from
the chilly north to the Big Easy and the reader is taken for a fantastic roller coaster
ride from slice of life to supernatural to sci-fi to zombie thriller with a
couple of sharp turns added for good measure. The story moves at a good pace
and allows for character development while progressing the story steadily. Even
the supporting cast, especially the sassy punk gal named Bev, seems to have a
good amount of story potential so the series has plenty of room to continue.
The artwork is amazing. Peters is a master at his craft and
is in the school of Barry Windsor-Smiith, and Bernie Wrightson in the intricacy
and craftsmanship of his line work.  The
book’s cover, pictured above, has such rich colors with a great logo containing
some superb celtic design elements. The interiors are black and white which
really allows Peters’ line work to shine. 
This book easily gets a five star rating and I’ll look
forward to a sequel if the author has one brewing.
Dan Sehn is a resident of the chilly north fantasizing about making a move to the Big Easy. He is also the publisher of Argo Comics.

    1. It's self-published by Michael L. Peters. You can get a copy in two places.

      It's a book worth having for sure. And there will be a second book out in the near future. : )
