I really enjoyed the art, with the exception of some character designs, and I thought it was a great fit for this type of book. There is a messiness to it, which reminds me of Sandman. It has that same darkly unclean realism thing going.
Now, good stuff out of the way, let’s get to the bad.
I hated the antagonist. The villain was an angel or devil, who looked like a junior high illustration of Shiva interpreted by H.R. Giger. Before she changed from the “hot, in a Gaga kind of way” woman to the angel/demon/shiva, she looked funky and slightly misshapen. This did not sell me on Gaga hot. There was also a lot of unnecessary stuff trying to make her more mysterious. She had an ugly, giant, red teardrop tattoo, which is obviously shorthand for identifying other shiva angels. She also apparently boarded the plane after the doors were closed, which raised exactly zero alarms. Not the best writing here; this is a shame, because the first third of the book, which dealt with Mitch Fella coping in the world, was pretty well written.
This brings me to the real issue I have with this issue. Resurrection Man #1 is mislabeled. We get almost no introduction to the character, no explanation of his (totally cool) powers, and no clue about what is going on. This is a real shame, because there is a lot of great stuff in here. I loved the idea and really dug the artwork, despite the fact that a sexy lady is apparently impossible to draw. Really, there is just a ton of untapped potential here that I would love to see properly explored. I picked this comic up hoping to find something different and impressive. I put it down thoroughly unimpressed.
