My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So far Mercy has been beautifully illustrated but I’ve had little clue as to what’s actually going on. In #3 we finally gain some clarity in regards to the plot. Andolfo’s writing is by no means perfect, but that may simply be down to the quality of the translation. Having edited several comics written by non-native English speakers, I know how hard it can be to not only translate the meaning of the words the writer has written, but also the feel…the atmosphere they intended their words to evoke.
Nevertheless, Andolfo has crafted a tale full of interesting and compelling characters, including…and, perhaps, especially…the characters who live by feeding off the brains of normal humans.
Also, the copy I have sports a truly gorgeous cover by Stjepan Šejić, which was worth the cover price alone.
