Continuing on with my 50 cent comic book score from MegaCon a couple of months back, we have The Magdalena #5 from February, 2011.
The concept of this book is that there are a long line of descendants from Jesus and Mary Magdalene who protect the Church from evil from generation to generation. The concept is interesting (if a little reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code).and the art is pretty good but there doesn’t seem to be much depth here. The story basically involves a young boy who is being cultivated as the Anti-Christ though it’s a little unclear whether he really is or not.
In this issue, The Magdalena battles another ugly demon from Hell. There weren’t many ads in this issue and being a relatively recent book, they aren’t as fun to look back at anyway.
