    Terrible art, terrible dialogue, terrible story.

    A whimsical take on a supernatural universe. Includes some cute ideas that would be out of place in a darker story, but work very well in this one.

    Amusing and FunThe premise here is that sisters Cate and Kate can travel back and forth between our world and the demon world and they use that ability, smarts, and some magic to solve mysteries and kick demon butt.

Each issue in the series, (this is the first issue), has a one-shot mystery and some hints and clues about a possibly darker overarching back story. In this issue they have to figure out why a demon kidnapped a groom during his wedding ceremony.The appeal turns mostly on the snappy patter between the sisters, some clever sight gags, and some almost-slapstick bits in the demon world. The mystery was O.K., even though it took a bit of monologuing at the end to wrap it up. The drawing is old school, with an early "Archie and Veronica" feel. The characters are cartoony, the colors are broad and loud, and there isn't a lot of detail. That said, the characters are fairly expressive and the action is crisp and clear, and that serves the story and the feel of the comic very well.So, this was fun and had enough amusing bits that I'd be happy to keep checking in on the series.(Please note that I had a chance to read a free ecopy of this comic without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    Exorsisters is a fun new series from Image Comics. I say fun, because it’s light hearted and a bit silly. It’s also nothing like what you’d expect when you picture two exorcist sisters. This issue spent most of its time establishing the characters and well…their job. We also got a hint at some of their abilities (though we didn’t get the see the full scale in some instances, which is also explained). Kate and Cate seem like they could be really interesting characters to follow. The revelation Exorsisters is a fun new series from Image Comics. I say fun, because it’s light hearted and a bit silly.

Also, I’ve got to know how that works.

    I really wanted to like this book enough to add it to my pull, but it just wasn't there. It feels like a TV script that they couldn't sell to a network as the feminist answer to Supernatural so they just adapted it into a comic and didn't change it enough to fit the format. Which is a little sad because this is a really great concept and I love all the banter between the two leads, but the rest of it just wasn't quite there. I might give it another shot in trade someday but for now I just don't I really wanted to like this book enough to add it to my pull, but it just wasn't there.

    I like that the sisters are polar opposites of each other. I suspect there is a story there and I can't wait to find out what it is. The case the sisters are called into solve is the case of the the groom taking on his wedding day to hell. But is that really what happened. Read and find out. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    There are enough hilarious moments in this to overcome the otherwise silly writing and a story that fails to make the reader care about the outcome. The art is colorful, but I find it a bit too streamlined. It looks like something out of a web comic. I hope the series can keep the humor fresh.
