“Dom Ragnar hoped that his troubles were almost over, that his horrific nightmare was at last coming to an end. But Satan takes a personal interest in every sinner, and his boast is that he’s never lost one yet. The Road to Hell is wide and easy to travel, and Dom will find it much harder to get off than it ever was to get on!“
Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
Oh what’s this visual delight I see before me, could it be another amazing looking book from Berserker? Why yes it is. This issue looks amazing. The character designs are so solid from page to page and I can not help but feel grossed out when I see the deformed images of the deformed main character. What I really loved about this issue was the demons. They look great. The coloring is spot on and adds so much more to what I was looking at that it just makes me smile.
Story: 3.5 out of 5
The story here seems to build slowly. Sure the first two issues were a great build into the character development and push the story along, but I felt it might be going slower than it should. So with issue #3 we finally move out into the world and see what troubles can befall our troubled star. I like how the writing plays on my mind, kind of helping me distinguish between what is right and wrong while I see his misery unravel. Good progression here and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Dying Breath: 3.5 out of 5
This is a great looking issue that is kind of hard to sum up story wise. I only say that because I don’t want to give much away. It is kind of like a journey into madness brought on by bad choices. I do like what they have going on over at Berserker, amazing talent on all sides and that is something that keeeps me coming back again and again. Check this series out and maybe you will learn how to behave you damn devils!
