I would like to thank NetGalley and Image Comics for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Introduction: Since I am on the roll when it comes to reading books from NetGalley, I have picked up another graphic novel that sounds pretty interesting called “Limbo Volume One” which is written by Dan Watters along with artwork by Caspar Wijngaard.What is this story about? Welcome to the world of Dedande City, where reality and technology becomes blended into one universe [...]

Limbo by Dan Watters & Caspar WijngaardComplete Limbo series4 starsThis is a very interesting graphic novel. It’s hard for me to describe what this is about because I don’t want to give away the ending and since this is only six issues I feel like it is very easy to spoil the story. Just know that this is one of the best graphic novel endings I’ve come across. Everything is tied together in the end and while you feel jarred and confused throughout the majority of the story, the ending [...]

There have been many comics that have asked the question of what happens to us when we die, whether it is Neil Gaiman's The Sandman or something as recent like Mark Millar and Greg Capullo's Reborn. In the case of this peculiar Image title by writer Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard, it adds a new spin on the theological concept of Limbo, also known as Purgatory. In the unique world of Dedande City, where the line between biology and analogue technology becomes blurred and minor deities lie coile [...]

This is a difficult one to review, for me. This book compiles issues #1-#6, none of which I had read before. Issue #1 had me interested. There were mysteries galore, a scary alternate universe, a few really intriguing characters, and a teleshaman (you'll have to read it). We're into the action quite quickly as Clay tries to remember who he is and also bring down some powerful, magical drug lords, all as Dia de los Muertos is going on in the streets.What follows is some weird combination of Jason [...]

Wow, this was crazy good! Considering the premise, a grizzly PI with a dark past, I was expecting the plot to be pretty by the numbers. I'm glad to say I was proven wrong. The plot itself is pretty engaging with some sharp twists, not to mention a jaw dropping ending. Add the gorgeous artwork into the mix and you've got yourself a dope comic.

Hey, I can take graphic graphic-novels, so to speak. But, if I am going to have violence, I need there to be some meaning behind them.This is the story of a detective who has lost his memory, in a setting not unlike New Orleans, but with weird creatures and videos that make reality, andhonestly, I had no idea what was going on half the time, and after a while I didn't really care.So, sure, have fun with this one. Interesting art work. Confusing as hell, and I still don't know what happened in th [...]

I received a copy of this from Netgalley for a fair and honest review.This was so weird and good. The art was fantastic and the mystery of what's going on. Perfect mix of 80s pop culture and voodoo mysticism. When it was revealed what was really happening I was shocked and loved it. Great read. Another good Image comic.

3.5 stars. Gorgeous art and colours, and fun and innovative panelling. The idea for the story was intriguing, but ultimately didn't have a lot of impact on me. That being said, as soon as I had finished reading Limbo, I felt compelled to read it over again to let the nuanced nature of the story and art soak a little deeper into my mind. 'Be kind, rewind' definitely applies here, in more ways than one.

A private eye story filtered through analogue existentialism in the strange town of Dedande, a sort of eighties New Orleans turned up to 11. Clay has no memory of who he is or how he got there when he's hired to investigate a crime lord in a luchador mask. His landlady knows that the best thing to offer a loa is a really good mixtape. The preferred local fast food is lizard on a stick. I don't know any of the creators, and read this principally because I'll look at any recent Image debut that tu [...]

I received this book for free from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I enjoyed this. There was a lot of mystery and discoveries to be made. The story definitely kept my attention at the beginning, but petered off a bit towards the end. The artwork is gorgeous. I adore the coloring. I really liked the concept of this story. It is very interesting. I didn't personally care for the ending. It didn't have the bang that I was anticipating. Still good, but I think that it co [...]

I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.This isn't the first book I have read by this author, having read Tortured Life, a year or so ago. I thoroughly enjoyed that one, and this one was also an enjoyable experience. Much like his previous work that I read, this one was also truly messed up. This graphic novel is dark, twisted, yet fun due to all the eighties pop culture references thrown in.Everything is a little mixed up at first, but the s [...]

I was reading this as a NetGalley proof, and unfortunately it expired before I could finish it, which is a shame as I was really enjoying it! From what I read, it features incredibly beautiful artwork and a batshit-brilliant world. Yes, the story is slightly confusing, and based on this first trade paperback, not all the elements of the world are tied together yet. But honestly? I'd rather read something wild and imaginative and fascinating, and be a little confused, than know exactly what's goi [...]

I got a copy from Netgalley for review.I honestly wanted to like this so much, the description sounded so awesome. But no matter how hard I try, I couldn't get into it–it was confusing, and all over the place. By the time I reached halfway, I felt really bored and I just wanted it to end.I rated this 2 stars for the art and colors used.

Thank you Diamond Book Distributors for giving me a digital copy via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review!I honestly wasn't quite understand the story first time reading it. But as I get far into it, it get's interesting. I really love the dynamic between Mr. Clay and Sandy. Eventhough, I wasn't too keen with the drawings, the story really made up for once you get into it.

Book – LimboAuthor – Dan WattersStar rating - ★★★★★** COPY RECEIVED THROUGH NETGALLEY **There is some incredible artwork here. Not only realistic, but setting the right atmosphere and mood for each scene, while allowing us to see crystal clearly everything that matters in that moment. I really loved the way the phone call at the start was written, so that we could only read the words we were supposed to, like a broken connection would allow.The whole channel hopping idea was inspir [...]

This is a private eye tale is a strange town called Dedande. The story begins on Dia de Muertos (Day of The Dead) and takes place in a town that feels a lot like New Orleans on LSD. This “neon-noir” tale explores existentialism in a new way and with an interesting mix of Mexican and New Orleans culture. The art is dripping with bold colors and the geometric aesthetic of the 80s. The story follows Clay, a private eye who is rescued from the gutter by a young woman and has no memory of his pas [...]

I read the first of this series, but I stopped after that because that inaugural issue didn't completely capture my attention. But now, having gone back to read the entire miniseries, I'm more impressed with the narrative as a whole. This is worth checking out, and we discussed this title on a recent episode of The Comics Alternative: comicsalternative/episode-.

A copy of this book was generously provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have to start by saying that the cover is really pretty. The art in this book is weird but in a good way, it is really good. The story on other hand let me down a bit. I liked half of the book. The other half was confusing, expecially the motivations of the characters. Also the plot gets weeker throughout the book in my opinion.Don't get me wrong, I liked it but I wanted something more.

This comic is highly strange but I enjoyed it. The first 2 issues really had me scratching my head and wondering why I was even still reading it. It got better for me once the voodoo became more of a focus. The end was really good. It didn't really end in the way I wanted it to but it was very appropriate given the rest of the story. No happy endings for anyone.

A very interesting premise that delivers massively: TV tropes, teleshamans, voodoo queens dancing to Top of the Pops, loa and spectral musicians come together in this colourful, noir story (yes, I know, it's ironic). The only thing is, it did feel like the story ended so I don't know how it will go on in future volumes. In any case, excellent read.

I *love* the art style and the 90s references. I'm a bit less interested in the overall plot, but I like the way it incorporated voodoo with technology. But seriously, the colours and look of the book were just gorgeous, and overshadowed the story.I'd recommend picking it up.
