“THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,” Part Three
The sold-out, Eisner Award-nominated horror series continues! From RODNEY BARNES, the writer behind such hit shows as Marvel’s Runaways and STARZ’s American Gods, and JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, the artist who redefined SPAWN.
ComicBook.comKilladelphia #27 is another very dense issue with narrative split across several characters – but the real gem of this issue is George Washington. As is the case with nearly ever issue of this comic is how the story examines American history, the lies we tell about it and the ways we twist a narrative to fit into a specific ideology. This issue takes our perspective on Washington on directly and, particularly as juxtaposed with Anansi's discussion about the nature of man and their atrocities, makes for a brilliant examination of our culture and everything about who we are as the story builds to war. There's not much else to say about this issue than to say that this is a master work of writing and storytelling and the art here is top notch as well.
Major SpoilersKilladelphia #27 uses the climactic battle to focus in on more characters, several of whom have died or will likely die in this battle. What else would we expect with Armageddon? It is interesting to have a horror story depict even Vampyres as acting heroically and meeting their ends even with melancholy.
