“A magnificent job of keeping the reader entertained, be it through fear or humor” – Geeks of Doom weighs in on Satanic Hell vol 1!
Gary Makries from the legendary site Geeks of Doom picked up Satanic Hell volume 1 from Alterna Comics. Here’s a blurb:
“Writer Grigoris Douros does a magnificent job of keeping the reader entertained, be it through fear or humor. His blasphemous dialogue will probably get his name cursed more than a few times but I bet he’s okay with that. Teaming up with artists Kevin Enhart, Newel Anderson, and Jimmy Kerast allows him to bring his vision to life (or death, whichever you prefer). The art is gritty, simple, and almost drab at times… The faces of the characters are dark and deeply lined, giving them a sense of hopelessness that simple line drawings could never have depicted… Rendered in only the most basic form, it forces the reader deeper into the storytelling.”

Project Nerd also took a look at the metal band’s compilation volume:
“Whether intentional or not, this book can be viewed as a satirical swipe on the ultra conservative views held by many that metal fans worship the devil and sow discord among youths. This attitude is conveyed very effectively by Douros when writing the dialogue for Reverend Scudder, the main villain of the piece. The dialogue for the three main characters flows really well. It feels like genuine conversations between friends, especially when they have disagreements. It’s also steeped in references to metal culture as well as a sneaky Monty Python reference about the Spanish Inquisition.”
