A Review: PURGATORI #1

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of PURGATORI #1 from Dynamite Entertainment. The story is written by Aaron Gillespie and illustrated by Javier Garcia Miranda.

Purgatori has been captured and is a prisoner of Lucifer Morningstar. Hel wishes another go-around with our heroine, but Lucifer has other plans. When he exiles her to Earth, Purgatori thinks he’s being soft on her.  She will soon realize that there is more to her “punishment” besides her banishment…

Longtime fans of Purgatori will be happy with her return, and Gillespie does a very nice job dropping in some backstory so the newcomers have some idea of what has happened before. Javier Garcia Miranda does a great job balancing the beauty and ugliness of the demons, as well as the brutal violence in this issue. Overall, Dynamite has done a good job bringing back the CHAOS! Universe. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here.

PURGATORI #1 is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.dynamite.com.
