The Fallen

In The Fallen: The Pale Door Marian Kim and David Aaron Clark create a world full of vampires (maybe) who appear as sado-masochists and thugs, and one fallen angel (maybe) who takes the form of a tatoo artist. Their story is peopled with really freaky characters in a seedy underworld of depravity and possible redemption. The artwork is both dark and vibrant, mixing photorealistic images with slashes of color. Unfortunately, for me, the story was difficult to follow or get into. Maybe I'm just tired of angels and vampires, but the narrative seemed unfocused, and I wasn't willing to work for it. This is only part one, so maybe it gets clearer; but I'll likely step off now.
