Satanika Halloween Special

    (Verotik, 2007)
™ and © 2007 Glenn Danzig

Reading Glenn Danzig’s comic books is about as tolerable as listening to Stan Lee’s music. Danzig gets a big leg up from his artist Anna Merli, who draws an adorable, cartoony Satanika in a style all her own. Merli’s tale is a five-page introduction to an 8-page confrontation drawn by Jimmy Vu. While Vu has a stylistic knack for the material, he draws eight pages of headshots, most of which Danzig burns with one demon after another interrupting the stand-off, until a number of parties are threatening each other amid… what? Presumably we’re in Hell. Nothing happens, everyone murmurs about how powerful they are, and there is not a clue what is going on, except when a couple of ineffectual displays of power are thrice exposited in dialogue and narration boxes. Even the lettering is awful. Rarely has such a failure been printed in four colors.
