Johnny Segura is currently running a campaign to help in the funding of his comic book, The Last Reaper, on Kickstarter. Segura sent us a copy of the comic to check out, and it did not disappoint. Take a look below and see why you need to read this book.
To get us started the book is about the grim reaper and what happens to him after the last living thing dies on the planet and he is left to starve without any souls to feast on. I thought between the art and this concept that this book was a must read for me. We even named it as our “Can’t Miss Pick” on our monthly Top 10.
I was hooked on this story in just the first few pages. From the start the comic has a powerful and emotional pull to it that gets you invested. Segura does a great job of pacing the story and keeping you interested in what is going to come next. I don’t want to get in to the story too much though as I want everyone to get to explore it like I did.
I want to touch on the art because it is what drove me to the Kickstarter before I read about it. The art style is so different and has a great feel for the book. The art has kind of a light feel to it, but while being able to remain all of the darkness needed still for the grim reaper. I do feel that the art will drive other readers to The Last Reaper, like it did to me.
The Kickstarter is running until December 12, and is already funded! Segura is offering many cool rewards like a variant cover, sketch cover, and commissions. You can get this book digital at $5 or a physical copy at $10 which is a great deal for this book! Look for the link at the end of this review.
While it does not feel like an incredibly long read (Because you’re so engrossed in the story) the story is very satisfying clocking in at 28 pages. I thoroughly enjoyed the comic and definitely recommend it to other readers that are looking for something new and different. Go snag your copy of The Last Reaper, while it is still campaigning on Kickstarter.
