Lou Jacobs's Review of Saint Cain 1: The Stone Cross
what I look for in comic reading is the characters facial expressions with the dialects.
What I look for in comic reading is the characters facial expressions with the dialects. Henrik Rehr has done a great job. Except with a few scenes this series keeps the suspense going. It's like having a spy novel and the supernatural in one. Mr.Rehr is also trying to draw the reader to figuring out the characters next move. I recommend readers to stop by this site and read, not just to find out was viewing in the current page, but to really figure out what the characters are trying reveal to the reader before it happens. Well until I get enough hits on my site to make me a celebrity make mine Webcomicsnation.
If you've ever been one to tear away a corner of a present and then guess the contents from that sneak peek only, then Henrik Rehr's comic Saint Cain should be right up you're alley.
The story revolves around Benedict Fischer, the denizens of the brothel/bar Hotel Honolulu and treasure that may or may not exist. Though this tale has much more to offer then a simple modern day take on piracy.
Right from the start Mr. Rehr plays merry hell with the reader's and his character's preconceived notions. Pointing out that he has loosely named his setting and protagonist after two of the most famed traitors in history is only scratching at the surface.
With a thick and shadowy style of line art that you could get lost in and pace of action that will leave you reeling, it is often difficult to sit back from the tale and try to think it through. So you find yourself entrapped and enraptured with Benedict's and cast's own impulsive actions.
There are no easy answers in Saint Cain, an in truth I suspect that there might never be any at all and that is the greatest hook this comic has to offer.
