“They say if you repent your sins, you’ll be forgiven. They say if you’re truly sorry, your evil will be cleansed away. But it’s not only God who loves a sinner – and when you enter the Church of Hell, you don’t come out with a smile on your face, unless the Devil has cut you a new mouth! The four-issue event begins here!

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
I can not think of a single book that is put out by Berserker Comics that is not great looking from front cover to back cover. This issue has a very real and clean look to it. It also has some of the grossest images I have ever seen. Look at the cover! It’s not a bad thing at all. The artwork works here and is a definite selling point to the issue.

Story: 4.2 out of 5
The story is very creative. I like the way the issue started, and then went back in time to show me how it will get to that point. The story moves at a nice pace and does a good job explaining what is going on and how the main characters life is falling apart. What got me was the ending. I like the suspense that was built up leaving me wanting to know more.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
This is a solid first issue. The artwork and story compliment each other very well. The issue is not for the squeamish as the pictures are very detailed and kinda gross. Overall though it works and I am sold. I love this company and the books they are putting out.
