Adam Cheal from Comic Booked has checked out Satanic Hell #2 and he digs it!
“The artwork by Kevin Enhart is on par and has a great continuity with the first issue. Once again the coloring by Jimmy Kerast is a real winner and the outdoor sunshine effects add a real feeling of heat and grime to the pages. The writing by Grigoris Douros is good and seeing as the book starts to set its own story and tone now, it is much easier to get a feel for Douros’ overall writing style. I really like the fact that the content is controversial and Douros portrays what he wants without feeling the need to tiptoe around being politically correct or offending people. Overall, issue two of Satanic Hell is a worthy chapter and I’m looking forward to seeing what issue three has in store.”

Comicvixen, writer for Plugged in Culture, discovered Satanic Hell online and became a big fan. She contacted me about doing an interview and here it is! In her own words:
“I stumbled upon this comic the way I do most of my independent comics, late at night and on Twitter. I immediately became intrigued with the first issue and purchased the second one because I needed to know where the story was going. I’d like to say I’m patiently waiting for the third one to be released but having been only a mere 5 days since I read the second issue, patient is not the word. I am ready!”
The interview covers the origins of Satanic Hell, the characters, some personal background and what’s coming next. Check out Comicvixen’s interview with me at Plugged in Culture.
The preeminent British sci-fi magazine Starburst rated the second issue of Satanic Hell a 7 out of 10 stars. Not too shabby. Its great to see that the story continues to resonate amongst multiple readers.
“Satanic Hell makes for an interesting read. Despite the fact that not much at all happens within this second issue, it does a good job in world and atmosphere building. It feels like a horror comic even though no overt horror is ever shown. The art, by Kevin Enhart and Jimmy Kerast is similar to Ben Templesmith’s work in 30 Days of Night, particularly in the colouring.
I didn’t read the previous issue, nor did I know anything about the comic before I clicked open the first page, but this second instalment had me hooked enough to seek out both the first and any subsequent issues. There’s room for improvement – in this case, turning the dial up to eleven might not do anyone any harm – but Satanic Hell is funky enough to have you tapping your foot along to the groove.”
Don’t worry, it hits eleven. Maybe even 12.

Dan Morrill from Comics Forge really digs Satanic Hell. He gets it. He even caught the homage to Robert Heinlein. Here’s some of what he had to say about Satanic Hell #2:
“I think I am still going to vote this one as the best independent comic of the year right now because it simply is an engaging story line.
There is a lot here to think about, which is what makes this comic book great. We get half-dressed sexy demons, children fighting the authorities, an evil Christian corporate state that suppresses its population in the name of Jesus.
The second issue comes out of the gate swinging, and keeps up the story line much like comic book one… I am rating this bad boy five of five stars, awesome everything from the story line to the writing to the underlying political tones and unconscious or unintentional or not, an homage to Robert Heinlein. What more could you ask for? This one is worth getting, reading, and digging.”
