For the book tour, we read all 8 comic books (a grand total of 192 pages), around 24 pages a book! The series is available on Amazon for $17.92 (all of them) and was published by Vault Comics. They’re available via Comixology on amazon, so they’ll be super friendly to read on the kindle app!
Our main character, Olivia, achieves what every writer wants; for their book to cause mass rioting. I’m kidding, but not really. But as the comic progresses, Olivia, hailed and reviled as a prophet, realizes that her book may not have been as original as she initially thought!
I loved how this book played with the concept that the Abrahamic religions center on; the idea of a text being revealed. I also loved that Olivia edited out sections from the book before publishing it! As we get to more series, we’ll see the consequences of that editing; perhaps we already do with some people able to resist the effects of the book.
The comic book does lean into a lot of horror tropes. Olivia and the bodyguard start hooking up, and we see a lot of her breasts, etc. That being said, the comic book was pretty, and if you like supernatural horror, then you’ll enjoy this.
