Hampton Wales, a Detroit homicide detective, finds himself trapped in a mysterious and violent reality, only to find himself dead while attempting to solve a seemingly average and routine homicide. Confronted by an immortal tormenter known as La Piton (the Python), Hampton begins a dark and twisted quest to find out why and how he died. To do so, he must face off against a legion of gun-toting, deceased Revolvers within the Moratorium, a hellish version of Puragatory. Hampton will need to “kill of be killed” to have enough time to unravel his demise and discover it was by his own hand, someone else, or something more sinister.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots

    Revolvers #1 is a solid first issue for fans of edgy Image comics. John Zuur Platten’s script starts off held back by overly formulaic tropes, but becomes much more engaging once the dark supernatural material kicks in. The visuals from Christian Dibari and Simon Gough are sharp, dark, and well-directed, making for a comics experience that will bring readers back to the 90’s and early 2000’s of brutal & hard-edged comic books.

    It’s always so difficult to judge a series on the first issue…particularly if the first issue in question has a HELL of a lot of backstory to develop. Detective Wales is actually capable of coming across with more of an impressive individual fingerprint. Still, Platten and company need to establish the world in which the action is happening first. And for the first issue, they aren’t doing a great job of making it all seem terribly apppealing.
