This story takes place in the Marvel 1602 universe. Angela and Serah are witch hunters, who find and capture – or kill – those with supernatural abilities. But something more sinister has surfaced. There are people running around who have witch-like powers, but who aren’t witches. They are Faustians, who traded a part of themselves to the fey Enchantress for their heart’s deepest desire in return. Enchantress prophesizes that when Angela kills 3 Faustians, her beloved Serah will die. Serah takes it in stride, saying that nothing, not even death, will keep them apart, but Angela isn’t so sure. Even so, they have a mission. They wander the English countryside, looking for more Faustians and doing their duty even as they try to figure out how to break the curse.
You guys may know I read very little Marvel. Characters popped up that were obviously cameos but I didn’t get who half of them were. There was a cameo by Guardians of the Galaxy tho which was pretty awesome 😄 The art ranged from looking like a medieval painting to cartoony, but it was always atmospheric with dramatic lighting. I picked it up because Bennett is also the author of Bombshells, and it didn’t disappoint. This edition had the first issue of Marvel: 1602 at the end, which was pretty cool. I might pick it up even if it’s been reviewed here already =P
