Is Monomyth the type of series you should be adding to your pull or is it one to stay clear off? Read on to find out.
The official description from OSSM Comics:
What if Michael fell and Lucifer prevented Adam & Eve from eating the apple? Free of sin, the people of Eden live in harmony… until Enoch’s born. Rebellious, angry, and a natural fighter, Enoch might be just what Eden needs to protect them as Michael’s army returns to annihilate.
Ever wondered what Eden would have been like if Adam and Eve never eat from the forbidden tree? Well Monomyth explores this and much more as it shows how faith and the ability to choose from right and wrong can shape the world you live in. In addition it also tells tells tale of warring angels with Lucifer this time round being on the side of just with Michael taking the fall from grace.
Siike Donnelly does a splendid job of shaping this story as despite not being an overly religious person myself I find that it can spawn fabulous tales. It is however clever and unique twists like the one that Donnelly does here that captivate me the most with the freshness being captivating. He also does a terrific job of introducing some new characters to the land of Eden with the concept of light over darkness being very strong and powerful. In addition to this I found the opening that showed Michael against Lucifer to be extremely exhilarating and exciting.
Eric Ninaltowski‘s delivers some sticking art with the unknown artist showing a lot of talent. The detailed characters and scenery along with the bold and unique layouts really help this story come to life with the texture also enhancing the overall tone. Ninaltowski also manages to liven things up by giving dynamic action and exciting encounters. Despite all this I did find some of the facial expressions to be a little stiff though it in no way overshadows what is otherwise sensational visuals.
Monomyth sets a new precedence for religious stories with this tale of good over evil being very dramatic and enthralling. Highly recommended.
