REVIEW: Killadelphia #20

Book Title: Killadelphia #20

Book Description: In the last installment of “Killadelphia” we saw that George Washington was joining the fray. From his observations, See Saw is the key to victory or defeat. If he has See Saw killed, Washington risks people making a martyr of him. He’s hoping that See Saw will be willing to negotiate. Elsewhere we see humans are shoring up alliances for an impending final battle. The humans are also formulating a dangerous plan to go vampire hunting. This plan is based on the legend that vampires can not come into daylight. Will this hold true or are they preparing to walk into a slaughter?

Summary

One of my favorite things about Mr. Barnes’ work is his uncanny ability to describe America as it is. He doesn’t pull punches. 

“America would become a nation where the elite – the educated and wealthy – would influence its evolution…. In time, America would devolve to a place where the idea of freedom would be but a product advertised to the rest of an envious world. But in truth she would be an oligarchy where lawyers would mold and shape truth like corrupt priests.”

I don’t believe I’ve ever read a more factual assessment of our nation’s development. We could still right the ship. Unfortunately, making things right would cost some people a lot of money and power that they won’t want to give up. For this reason I don’t see it happening anytime soon.

I’m running out of adjectives, superlatives, and metaphors to describe Mr. Alexander’s artwork in this series. I couldn’t imagine anyone else drawing for “Killadelphia” and producing at this level. The way Luis NCT colors the artwork takes it to a different level. The panels of See Saw on the crucifix were truly a sight to behold.

As a geek on a budget I am telling anyone that will listen “Killadelphia” is a must read series. It’s on point with the social/political climate of our nation, it has a great story, and the artwork is cutting edge.

I grew up loving all things geek. I started reading and collecting comics when I was 8. My personal collection has roughly 8,000 books in it. When I’m not doing something geek-related I love spending time with my amazing wife and kids, gaming, and working on cross stitch projects.
