Death Sentence Quick Review


Verity: frustrated artist. Weasel: struggling guitarist. Monty: rogue media icon. Three people infected with the G+ virus, which grants them incredible powers – but which will kill them in six months!

Will they fade away – or go out in a blaze of glory? From the streets of London to the North Atlantic, from muses lost to futures thrown away – Death Sentence is the jaw-dropping next step in superpowered storytelling!

Funny, fearless and frightening, this collection of the hit series is an unforgettable comics debut.

I just couldn't get into the book, with it's constant pangs from fight to sex. It reminded me too much of a Syfy Channel original show. Let's take a concept of superpowers that will kill you over six months and try and get male teens and older fans by adding sex in some scenes.

I don't know what to make of a scene where a Navy Captain is under mind control getting a ____ by another officer while he blows other ships in the fleet up. It's like an early indie film from a director or something so B-movie it didn't need to be made.
