Review: I had a bit of a hard time scoring this issue. On one hand, the concept is interesting. However, the context for the issue makes me wonder how it works. Let me explain.
I do like the concept that they explore here. Namely, a decent man with a wife and young daughter is being tormented by a demon. The demon really wants him to kill his family, but is willing to let things slide as long as the man feeds the demons lots of souls (preferably innocent souls). Thus, the guy goes out at night and slaughters people in an attempt to sate the demon.
Score: I'll give this one a pass. Just not sure that this concept merits a full ongoing. This guy would make a decent background character in another book. 6.8/10
