This was pretty bad Let's start with the good the art was serviceable and did what it needed to do with a few nice splash pages The story had a few interesting concepts characters But that's about it Everything else is a mess First you never get to know anything about the group of characters that make up Rex's team It feels like this is a story pulled from the middle of an ongoing series and you're supposed to know a lot about the characters already but you don't Then there's the otherworldly concepts of demons and philosophers and god and their superpowers and everything else There's no explanation for any of it and no back story This is writing 101 stuff that's just getting skipped Lastly the story resolves itself in a very abrupt odd way with the climax taking place off page which is really weird and the heroes just leaving I was scratching my head trying to figure out why anyone would see this as a good idea I kind of want my time and money back after giving this a chance It's efforts like this that make me wonder why I give lesser known books a chance This brief TPB is divided into 6 chapters and the first four tell a decent story about a well over 100 year African American who has been tasked with ridding the world of demons The ending to the first story was a bit abrupt and we could have used information about the network the prejudice that Ish overcame we get a flashback to when he returned to his home in the deep South post WWI and how he dealt with the demon in the first story The last two chapters were essentially short stories one of which introduced a supporting character that is featured in the first five chapters
