Damiano and Angelina (a demon and angel respectively) meet as children and have an instant connection but end up not seeing one another again until they’re adults. This collection of comic strips follows their relationship.
They are a cute couple, with Angelina being pretty naïve and Damiano being a full on horndog leading to some funny misunderstandings. These jokes work in the short strip format and somehow manage not to feel overdone when collected together. Our main characters are clearly an odd couple but they make it work and it’s a fun read. 4 out of 5.

Due to a horrific mining accident in the small town of Woodsburgh, Lady Swanson is haunted by the tragic event, leaving her with debilitating flashbacks and visions. But when Lady Hellaine and Mr. Goodwill arrive in the town, Swanson’s fears of the creatures in the mine are once again brought to life.
If you liked The Thing, you’ll enjoy this Victorian era equivalent. In fact, from what I’ve read of the comic follow ups to that movie, this may be a better option if you’re looking for that type of story. It’s really cool with fun twists and turns, great characters, and some great detail in the art to really sell the strangeness of these creatures. If there’s a volume 2, I am totally down. I give it a solid 4.7 out of 5.
