Exorcists issue 6 begins with Kate and Cate finding themselves in separate Heavens. For Cate it was enjoying a reality where her mother didn’t sell her soul. For Kate it is a reality where she sits upon a dark throne with demons at her command. It doesn’t take long before they both realize the ruse being perpetrated by the angels and make their escape. Seeing this escape take place on the back of an abducted angel is something I can’t say I have ever seen before. This is just one instance of the humor that writer Ian Boothby places into each page of this comic. Angels not being able to curse, angel hookup spots keep this issue funny while bringing this issue closer to a confrontation with the Shadow.
From character design to the colors chosen this issue does a great job. The jet black appearance of Cate and Kate’s hair and outfit really stand out. The realities created to keep Cate and Kate in paradise also pop. Whether it is the sketch, less colored panel with the false memory or the darks and reds in Hell each page is amazing.
This being my first issue of Exorsisters I wasn’t quite certain what to expect. I found this issue to contain just enough blend of humor, mythos and storytelling to capture my interest and have my awaiting the next issue. I have to admit I felt at times I was reading something of a female lead Supernatural episode and that certainly helped with my enjoyment.
