Comic Review – Faction Issue 0

FACTION By Erik Hendrix, Arnie Gordon, and Michael Nelson
The year is 2025 and the worlds’ governments are focused on eradicating the escalating terrorist threat in the Middle East secretly supported by the demonic Den Malignity. This effort has left Master Sergeant Acker Kinney, a Special Ops Medic, scarred and short an arm, forever changed.

When Acker is attacked by a demonic minion while recovering from his wounds in a military hospital, he is saved by Knights from the Society of the Enlightened. Soon he will be one of them; men and women blessed by God with countless lifetimes of knowledge and rediscovered powers.

The Society and the Den Malignity, enemies in an eternal struggle, must react when other factions, long thought banished or destroyed, rise to reclaim what was theirs. The Society and its knights must determine in this changed landscape who their allies and enemies are as factions vie for a stake in the world’s destiny.

The schemes of gods, the desires of demons, the powers of nature, myth, and the supernatural – all set forth to control a world the Society has sworn to protect. This is Faction.

“A Little challenging short an arm, but…a throw is a throw”

This was the line where I thought “OK you got me, who do I need to kill to get issue 1 of this bad boy”

I thought issue 0 was not only a great read but it gives a great into into what you can expect from the series. Even thought was a quick read (pretty typical for an issue zero) I found myself wanting more by the end.

The story is gritty, the character has some great dialogue (see above).

The idea of using a hard bitten ex special forces solider as our newbie into this fantastic universe is a concept often used but it is handled well here. There is definitely a lot more to the main character than we first think we we meet him.

The art is crisp, clean and the few action moments in the issue looked great and I hope we get to see a lot more of them in future issues.

Overall Faction issue zero felt like the start of an epic and global supernatural adventure which has got off to a great start.

I would definitely check it out.
