In HECK, the person to whom that happens decides to set up a business, taking messages to and bringing back messages from the dead and damned.
While it's an enjoyable premise, I thought Zander Cannon (artist and writer) might have been a bit blunt with the story, hitting us repeatedly over the head that the main character was in need of redemption and showcasing the ways in which he could gain it. A bit slow at times, but Cannon filled the passing time with a lovely set of drawings, so that helps out.
If you're looking for time to kill and want to see a dedicated professional turning out above-workman like work, you could do worse than HECK.
Look, I know it's not a great recommendation. What can I say? I didn't love it so couldn't give it five stars. I think it's a nice example of professional craft, so I can't give it three stars just because I didn't enjoy it. So four stars it is, and, thus, the review.
Definitely worth purchasing.
Just a few days ago, I bought the graphic story Heck, by Zander Cannon, expecting from the blurbs that it would be some sort of adventure story about a descent into Hell, and it is that, but it's also so much more!
The story is -- one might say -- a postmodern retelling of Dante's Inferno, and it's actually an ethically profound story, something that I hadn't anticipated!
The story affirms the virtues of loyalty to friends and courage to protect them, as well as the importance of rejecting various vices that Dante once warned about, but it also shows the difficulty of refraining from succumbing to temptation, due to the power of desire and the weakness of the will.
At the same time, Heck is a helluva good story!
