What Kirkman is doing with it works, and even though it feels a little too much like something out of Supernatural, it doesn't feel lame like Supernatural.

If you like Kirkman, good art, and having nightmares, start reading this series.

If you like Kirkman, good art, and having nightmares, start reading this series. It’s very creepy. Azaceta’s art is fantastic. I’ve read 1 and 2 (buy them and you’ll see my letter published at the end of issue #2). The first issue left me wondering a bit if I would keep with this series, but issue #2 sealed it for me. I’m sticking with it. I can’t wait for #3. Give it a shot (if not for the story and the art, then do it for your retirement planning. Have you seen what the early issues of The Walking Dead are going for??)

Having successfully tackled zombies, Robert Kirkman’s new archetypal horror series is: The (Southern) Exorcist.

Kyle is a troubled man with a troubled past. His mother was troubled – or possessed – and he’s now divorced with his wife taking his troubled kid from him. Now, another troubled kid is possessed and the troubled local priest can’t help – will troubled Kyle rise out of his funk and defeat the demon? Troubled people = compelling characters, apparently.

Robert Kirkman does not write great first books. The Walking Dead, Invincible - both titles’ first books were average at best, and it took multiple volumes for me to warm to The Walking Dead. Divvy up those volumes into single issues and we’re talking literally dozens of comics before the titles took off.

So it is with Outcast #1, which is at best an average comic and a pretty weak opening gambit. Kirkman’s written a lot of comics but he’s not actually a great comics writer. Kyle’s very uninteresting main character: a dull, clichéd mess of a divorcee who spends his time feeling sorry for himself, sobbing and sleeping. Even when he rises to the challenge of the exorcism, he still comes across as an ordinary, boring guy. Kirkman’s trying to make him into a Southern Constantine but Kyle appears to be nowhere near as brilliant a hero.

Kirkman doesn’t do anything with the exorcist angle either. What do you expect from an exorcism story? That’s what you get here. Kid possessed with demon, tied to bed, hurts parents, grins evilly and lashes out with extraordinary strength once the exorcists show up, oh so scary, exorcist does whatever, demon leaves, blah blah blah. There’s nothing original here - it’s the exorcist story template through and through.

Good read! To be honest, I checked it out because looking on Comixology, it got an insane amount of reviews. Of course, it's Robert Kirkman, so why wouldn't everyone and their mother want to read it?

I mean, the dude is largely popular because of the Walking Dead, but he's written SOOO much other stuff other the TWD. My personal favorite of his is Invincible, which he is also well known for in some circles. But he's popular because he's good.

Here is where people will have an issue with this series, and I did briefly also. It's about demons and exorcism. This type of story is a horse that has been beaten so badly, it looks like spam that has been run over with a tank. BUT THAT IS OK! What Kirkman is doing with it works, and even though it feels a little too much like something out of Supernatural, it doesn't feel lame like Supernatural.

It's good. The character development looks like it will be fun, and the potential scope of the world around the main character feels like at some point it will have the read saying "holy **** I can't believe this is happening". There's death, there's beatings, there's acts of selflessness, there's confusion, and the people feel like people... Not some surreal shenanigans.

Give the book a chance. Give Kirkman a chance, he's a proven author, and will continue to be.

I think Kirkman shines in this new series.
Destined for movies or a new TV run like Walking Dead.

Kirkman doesn't deliver a huge WOW in this issue, but he does earn a couple of "WOW"'s and "WTF"'s. I think he's setting up the characters for an interesting horror storyline.
This book has sold out at every comic store I have found. Many places are asking $10-$25 an issue and it's climbing.

This series is a hit.

Robert Kirkman does it again with Outcast. He does for Demonic Possession what he did for the Zombie Apocalypse. Cinemax has already green lit this for a series. Get your hands on this before you pay Walking Dead prices for this issue. Plis a fantastic storyline.
