About the Author

Dan Abnett lives and works in Maidstone, Kent. After graduating from Oxford, he worked for a while as an editor of comics and children's books before turning to writing full time. In the dozen or so years since then, he has written for such a diverse range of characters - including Scooby Doo, Thunderbirds, Conan the Barbarian, the X-Men, Johnny Bravo, Batman, Rupert the Bear, Dr Who, Mr Men, The Terminator and Postman Pat– that he is now clinically bewildered. He created the popular series Sinister Dexter, which he continues to write, along with other strips, for 2000 AD, and has recently helped rejuvenate the Legion Of Superheroes for DC Comics. His work for the Black Library, particularly the best-selling Gaunt's Ghosts and Inquisitor Eisenhorn novels, is often cited as damning evidence of just who it was that let the galaxy burn.

Andy Lanning is a British comic book writer and inker. He has co-written (with Dan Abnett) such titles as The Legion, Forceworks, Resurrection Man, and several space-themed comics for Marvel. His smooth inking style has been in much demand, and has been seen on various titles including Wonder Woman, Avengers, Otherworld, The Legion, and Star Trek: Starfleet Academy.

Resurrection Man is one of those tiny, little titles released under the New 52. If you're like me, unless you knew about the character before hand, you probably forgot about this little title and it's main character. I've read and seen the main character in other comics before, but never in his own title. So I passed on Resurrection Man and my comic shop recently was willing to sell me the collected edition for only $5. Well with a deal like that and one of my reliable sources really enjoyed the series from the start, I decided to give it a try. Surprisingly, I'm intrigued.

RESURRECTION MAN VOL.1: DEAD AGAIN collects issues #1-7. Mitch Shelley, AKA Resurrection Man, a man who gets a random set of powers every time he dies and resurrects again. Mitch awakens from the dead with no recollection of who he is. He has a feeling to travel to Portland for some reason, and gets caught up into a fight with an angelic-being named Suriel who wants him dead--permanently. While also on his way to know who he is and why he's going around the country picking up the pieces of what he lost, two mysterious meta-humans called the Body Doubles want Mitch dead as well. It looks like both heaven and hell want Mitch...but for what? Well let's just say when you die that many times, it's time to collect.

I never read the previous run on RM from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, but I know of their great work on Marvel's revamped character Nova and praise from their work on Legion of Super-heroes (though I never read it, only heard about it). And I admit, they've done a great job creating this character I never really knew until now. The book gives you Mitch's rough origin and beliefs fairly well. You don't have to read any previous RM plots to get this. So it's good for new readers.

Format: Paperback
Mitch Shelley is Resurrection Man, a man who can never die but, whenever he does, he is resurrected and imbued with a new power (psychokinetic powers, ability to manipulate lightning, water, etc.) and a vague new purpose to strive for. He also has no memory of the man he was before he was given this questionable gift of immortality. But Heaven and Hell are both after his long overdue soul and neither are being particularly pleasant going about it. There are also a pair of bounty hunters with powers of regeneration called The Body Doubles, Bonnie & Carmen, chasing Mitch.

Dan Abnett writes a fast paced and thrilling story of a cursed man forced on the run and thrown into baffling and nightmarish circumstances. From the opening chapter where Mitch's plane goes down to the final scene in Metropolis, Abnett and long-time artist collaborator Andy Lanning set a blistering pace for the unfolding story.

I've not read anything about this character before but after reading this book I think he's a pretty interesting dude. The Heaven and Hell angle gives this book a flavour of "Preacher" and "Hellblazer" (both superb comics) but the character himself and his skill set seem unique and original.

There was a strange plot hole in the middle of the book where the character jumped from the West coast to the East in the space of a couple of pages that was never addressed - but as a new reader to the character, maybe it's something I don't know about like that's part of his powers or something to do with being resurrected. That and the weak ending are the only two complaints I have about the book.

Other than that, this is a great story of an interesting kind of hero finding his way in the crazy DC Universe.

This book is a fun read and it does not try to be anything more. Not only is the book a fun read but it is a fast read with plenty of action and new characters to enjoy. These are characters that you really do not have to invest that much time or energy in...just accept them and wait and see what they can do. For lack of a better term, Resurrection Man Volume 1 is very "comic bookish" with some outlandish characters with outlandish powers. The main character, Mitch Shelley, is just as much in the dark as we are about who he really is or why every time he dies he comes back to life with a new superpower. We see the same bits of memories and dreams he does so we are all in the mystery together. I have read criticism from other reviewers about two of the female characters' somewhat revealing outfits but to keep things equal Mitch Shelley certainly appears quite muscular and shirtless as well. The art matches the pace of the story very well with a lot going on in many of the pages, but not so much it is confusing. Again, this is pure fun and this is a comic series that does not take itself too seriously, and neither should you. You don't have to worry about origins or affiliations to one side or the other or much else for that matter. Pick up this book and read it for a great time.

I'm not familiar with the original run of Resurrection Man, but this volume has sold me on the character. Mitch Shelly's ability to come back to life with a new superpower every time allows for limitless iterations of the character, sometimes in one issue. The action is fast, the story keeps you guessing about Mitch's past (why is it that he can't die? what are the ramifications for heaven and hell if one soul is ransomed indefinitely? who was Mitch before he was RM?), and there's even a healthy helping of fanservice!

I'll definitely be buying the next volume.
