    This series is kind of meh. Too many characters that I cared nothing about. I read this as it came out and honestly I couldn't even tell you any of their names.His other series that's also currently being published, Sonata, is way better - though completely unrelated.Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5Total review score: 2.4 This series is kind of meh.

    Aah, that was bad.It just... I thought it was going to end a certain way before I started this but it didn't. The art style is a bit too cartoonish for my liking and the plot is strange and impossible to follow. Interesting concept at the beginning, but nothing came of it. 1/5 stars.

    If you are an avid reader of comic books for as long as I’ve been, you tend to develop an appreciation for art from all corners of the world, whether it’s paintings, or this case, tattoos on a human body. I myself would never get a tattoo, but I certainly can be impressed with the artistry. We have seen comic book creations that evoke tattooing, such as the Tattooed Man and even Shade, the Changing Man, so what does this new Image title, The Marked, bring to the table?Please click here for my fu If you are an avid reader of comic books for as long as I’ve been, you tend to develop an appreciation for art from all corners of the world, whether it’s paintings, or this case, tattoos on a human body.

    Art was interesting, and the premise sounded cool...but the story was a hot mess. It did not flow well at all, and I didn't care about any of the characters. Definitely not for me!

    Well, this was a very pleasant surprise. Hine crafts a nice, and slightly different, urban fantasy here.Hines does re-use some old urban fantasy tropes. Such as, an ancient order of magic users hiding in plain sight. Said order also has an agreement to protect the world from threats from beyond Earth (The Laundry could likely use their help there-except already too late).But, what would these people do if one of their own, in a fit of anger and pique, decides to turn themselves into the U.S. mil Well, this was a very pleasant surprise.

And, they do this because they feel wronged by the order. With the large cast only Benis and Liza get any fleshing out beyond being two-dimensional characters. In addition, the concepts of magic being used in conjunction with tattoos is not necessarily new, now is the near Hellboyish use of dead Nazis as villains.

    DNF at 80pages. The story is such a mess, there is no solid flow, characters aren’t interesting and the art is kind of weird. The idea could have been cool but it was poorly executed.

    Selected this from Hoopla! app provided by my public library. I found the cover art intriguing.Great story with kind of a H. P. Lovecraft-Cthulu mythos. Art is decent. "The Marked" create strange magics through the body art they scribe on themselves, heroically defending the world from the "Dark Ones." Not really "M" more "T"-rated.
