Immortals Gods And Heroes Graphic Novel Review by Eugene Alejandro

Disclaimer: This is going to be a very short review. Just want anyone who reads this to know that.

Immortals: Gods And Heroes is a graphic novel anthology that serves as a prequel to the Immortals movie (to clarify, each story in this anthology is set before the events of the film). It is officially published by Archaia Entertainment and many of the stories featured are each done by different creative teams.

To be fully honest, there isn’t much that I can really about this graphic novel since its an anthology, but what I still say is that for what it is, its a very solid tie in to the movie as each of the stories very much do feel canon to what takes place before the main story of the movie. My only nitpick is that even for an anthology, some of the stories do feel too short, but they are well-written, so I shouldn’t complain.

While Immortals: Gods And Heroes isn’t anything special, its still an interesting read if you are a fan of the movie like I am, and want to know more about the world and characters and even the movie didn’t mention. Just keep in mind that this graphic novel anthology is intended for mature readers (18 and above).

I give Immortals: Gods And Heroes Two Thumbs Up, and 4/5 Stars.


Horror in the West Review by Eugene Alejandro

Disclaimer: This review is a very short one. I normally try to have my reviews be long, but this one is an exception. I hope everyone is okay with that.

Horror in the West a western graphic novel anthology from Alterna Comics that contains 11 stories each by different creative teams. These stories include Star Calf, Under The Mountain, The Devil’s Promenade, Lawson, Brother’s Keeper, The Hunters, Pinkerton Express, Sacred Heart Of Hell, The Amulet, El Tigre, and Captured in a Flash.

Normally, I don’t read a lot of anthologies, so I tend to not be to knowledgeable of how they are suppose to be structured. With that said, I found Horror in the West to be average at best.

While each story is separate from one another, the one thing they all have in common is that their artwork is black in white. As far the art goes, some stories looked fine, while others looked a bit bad as far the artwork is concerned.

Each stories did have very good premises, but because of how short they are, I couldn’t really get invested into them. If the stories had been longer, than I would’ve gotten to appreciate them for.

For what Horror in the West is, it’s an interesting experiment in trying to combine horror with western (specially as an anthology with each story made by different teams), but in the end, it didn’t really leave much of an impact for me. I DID NOT hate it, but I’m glad to have at least read it just because I was curious.

I give Horror in the West 3/5 Stars.
