Another one of my kickstarter comics cleared their hurtle and hit the presses. Today’s comic is Nightfall #3, a continuation of the Nightfall series. I don’t think I’ve talked about Nightfall or Constant Hustle before. Anyway, they’re a frequent flier on the Kickstarter funding site and some of that is because they deliver an above average product.
TL:DR- there appears to be an apocalypse event between the Wingless Comics line and Constant Hustle comics. Justice, an angel who fell to earth and now fights demons running around the planet, faces off against an old friend who’s very, very VERY mad with him over being stuck on Earth. He’s also working for Evil Merlin because he wants to destroy the world. But Mr. evil angel, sir, if you blow up the Earth, where are you gonna go? Meanwhile Avery (She’s the one with the A on her chest) catches up with the mysterious Lux but before they can make a plan, Blaqfire shows up. The race is on for the heroes to stop the Senator and Merlin from unlocking the portal to hell or something.
Let’s take a look at this scene. We get to see Her, the big shot of the Wingless Comics line, in action. The art here looks quite good. It’s got the character in the center but not dominating the frame and you get a good idea of her power in this scene. You feel the hero literally holding back the ocean as people flee from the attacking creature and the rising waters. The next frame is also really good, even though it’s brief. Justice is foreshadowing things to Kaliburn, and the way their faces are drawn shows the tension and confusion matched by their voices really well. Justice spends a bit of the next page fighting with Baleor and can’t explain things to Kaliburn, which leaves us out of the loop and wanting to see what he meant. Props to the writing team for adding foreshadowing. Problem is they added a bit too much foreshadowing and not enough story. I think the issue would be better if they went with the full 48 and showed a bit more how Her, Avery, and that book tie into the story. We got a lot of plot pieces but we don’t know the full frame of the puzzle yet. Some people might enjoy this style of storytelling but I’m not the biggest fan. Nonetheless it’s still an engrossing series.
If you turn to the back, there’s a side story called Immortals that may or may not have anything to do with the rest of the crossover event. No spoilers but some of the characters in Nightfall kinda look like the characters in Immortals. If you’re a Christian looking for interesting comics that reflect some of your beliefs, then you’re in luck. It’s certainly better than Left Behind but that’s not saying much. Even if you’re not a Christian and have high standards, I think you’ll like this series. Heck even Kickstarter itself thought it was pretty boss.
