About the Book:

The body of Father Franco Vieri still being possessed by the demon known as Legion has gotten used to his status at the Vatican, all the while Santiago, who is actually suffering from the effects of Legion having taken over the body, is under the scrutiny and process of the priesthood who are still convinced that Santiago is possessed by Legion.  While Legion is actually running rampant as Father Franco Vieri in the Vatican.

Reviewer’s Notes:

This story has gotten better. It answers the question to a certain degree of what would happen if a demon was loose in the Vatican.  Legion is like a kid in the candy store, as he wreaks havoc in the Vatican and surrounding area and enjoys every minute of it.

When the pope dies, presumably killed by Legion he convinces Brother Gabriel to do his bidding, who reluctantly does it to save his own skin as Legions grip on the Vatican increases through those that are around him.

All the while the real Vieri in the body of Santiago is having his faith tested as he is essentially tortured in a method designed to for demons out of the body of the victims they possess. When Vieri is saved by a woman named Maria who realizes that he may be telling the truth about who he is and decides to help him.

The cover artwork got my attention instantly, with its brilliant artwork and color combination. Showing the fright that Brother Gabriel is facing as the Demon known as Legion seems to be enjoying himself immensely while looking at Brother Gabriel.  This cover pretty much shows precisely the chaos that is happening and for anyone following the story, a perfect entry into the next book.

The interior artwork continues the wonderful appearance that the first book initially showed, all though when it comes to the death of the Pope there is more blood, guts and gore then the first book.  But it is done only as needed and not over the top.  But just enough to drive alongside the story and bring it to a visuality that essentially is hand in hand.

The Devil wears My Face #2 continues to bring shock and awe to the pages for the reader, holding the attention and leaving the reader wanting more.

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
