What are Reaper Rewards? Limbo by Marko Pandza @markopandza
Limbo. - Marko Pandza

Welcome to Limbo.

 

Do you think you qualify for Reaper Rewards?

 

Enter…if you dare…and find out.

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

Limbo by Marko Pandza is a unique and original take on Limbo and the Grim Reaper which had me working hard to visualize the setting, yet laughing at the grisly Reaper rewards, and what happens when someone escapes, when no one reigns in Limbo and it is allowed to ravage humans and Earth, totally out of control, leaving me queasy and asking the question What If.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 3 Stars

 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

This is a story of a man who accidentally becomes Grim the Reaper, the most highly revered killer in Limbo. A place beyond time and space as we know it where psychopaths compete for perverse honour and status as they carry out their deathly duties.

 

As Grim struggles to hold onto the memories of the life he’s lost, he discovers that the insane being who shaped him (and the course of existence itself) may have sinister plans for the one thing he values most.

In Limbo, the end is only the beginning.

Limbo

I would like to thank NetGalley and Image Comics for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Introduction:

Since I am on the roll when it comes to reading books from NetGalley, I have picked up another graphic novel that sounds pretty interesting called “Limbo Volume One” which is written by Dan Watters along with artwork by Caspar Wijngaard.

What is this story about?

Welcome to the world of Dedande City, where reality and technology becomes blended into one universe and mysterious god like beings called Deities lay dormant in video cassettes. Living in this world is a detective named Clay who does not have any memories of who he really is and is often described as being a very rude man. One night however, he ends up getting a mysterious client named Bridgette who asks him to take down a powerful crime boss named The Thumb and once Clay goes on this mission, he soon realizes that The Thumb is involved in some supernatural shenanigans where reality suddenly begins to unravel. Clay will soon discover that searching for his true identity in this surreal world would mean that he would have to search in the darkest corners of the supernatural and technical world to find the answers he is searching for.

What I loved about this story:

The premise: Dan Watters has written an extremely interesting premise for this series where people can enter other worlds through television sets and get messages from another universe through VHS cassettes. I really enjoyed this aspect of the story since it is extremely unique and it made the story somewhat interesting to me and I enjoyed exploring this strange new world that our main character Clay lives in. I also loved the character of Sandy, the woman who took Clay in and also has the ability to contact the spirit world through her mix tapes, as she is an extremely unique and fun character to read about and I enjoyed seeing her try to help out Clay when he got in trouble with the crime boss and how she used her abilities to learn more about the situation that Clay got himself into.

Caspar Wijngaard’s artwork: Caspar Wijngaard’s artwork is highly creative to look at as the characters are shown in different colors such as Clay having blue skin and is mostly shown in blue clothing while Sandy has green skin and is constantly wearing green clothing. These colorings really set the characters apart from each other and also describe their personalities somewhat as Clay’s blue coloring depicts his sad past and his determination to find out who he is while Sandy’s green coloring shows how alien she is in this world. I also loved the way that Caspar Wijngaard presented the images of TV static throughout the story as it gives the story an unearthly and unique feel.

Limbo

What made me feel uncomfortable about this story:

For anyone who does not like strong language and violence, this volume has a bit of strong language such as using the “f” word a few times and it also has some violence such as some scenes of people being graphically cut with knives. Also, the reason why I gave this volume a three star rating was because I felt that the plot was a bit too confusing as there were many supernatural and technical elements going on at the same time and it made the story a bit hard to understand. Also, I felt that most of the characters in this volume were too flat as we do not know much about these characters and I felt that their personalities were a bit boring also. The only character I felt that was interesting was Sandy as she does have a bubbly personality and the fact that she can contact the spirit world through her mix tapes made her the most interesting character in this volume.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, even though “Limbo Volume One” had an interesting premise about alternative realities and technology coming together in one world, the plot was a bit too confusing for me to understand and I felt that the characters should have been developed a little better. However, I will pick up the second volume to see if the story improves.

An amnesiac private investigator takes on a case
Limbo Vol. 1 - Dan Watters,Caspar Wijngaard

 

 

9 months of amnesia, saved and taken in by Sandy in Dedande, Mr Clay takes on a case from a femme fatale against the drug lord, the Thumb. This is a world of supernatural events where shamen and others vie for power. Sandy uses voodoo magic to help solve problems. Naturally all is not as it seems.

 

Colourful and quite original, this was quite enjoyable but ultimately this was too involved for me.

Weekly Recap (And STORM BORN Giveaway!)

Well, it was definitely an interesting week! I accomplished a fair amount of my goals, learned some lessons, hosted a cover reveal for one of my favourite new authors, and made some new choices about my career. Not going to stop what I'm doing, just choosing a slightly different workload. I'll explain soon... First off, here's what I completed:

 

• Finish the plot lines and world building for Agents of Limbo series (More on this below...)

• Finish editing Storm of the Gods and prepare to send it to Beta readers/publishers

 
Now, I really, really did mean to write the story lines and finish the world building for Agents of Limbo. Believe me when I say that I love the bones of that series– the characters are so much fun, the new world is cool, the romances are heart-warming, the powers and abilities are diverse, and there will be car chases! However... I did a lot of reflection about my writing and what I choose to put in my books. With my thoughts slinking to the Areios Brothers books as I prepare to email Storm of the Gods to publishers, I began noticing the similarities to those novels and Agents of Limbo. Both books are urban fantasies with closely bonded brothers who have supernatural abilities. The settings are California and New York respectively, and while they are different, there could be some similarities that are seen. Since my current plan is to release these novels sometime next year, it occurred to me that they could be seen as copies of one another. That's not something I want. Urban fantasy is my primary genre, but it's not my only one. I love steampunk, dystopia, and will one day venture into sci-fi/cyberpunk. As much as I hate to push Agents of Limbo back again, I have to think about what will best sell my books. 

 

Supporters in my writers group have nudged me in the direction of an urban fantasy/post-apocalyptic story that I've been using for my prompts, and I have to admit it's been lingering in my mind for a while. I won't go into a lot of detail to it now (maybe I will on Thursday, though I can tell you the series will be called Iron Gargoyle), but as far as broadening my horizons and gaining more readers, I think it will be the best choice for now. So, here are my new priorities for this week:

 

• World building, histories, series outline, and plots for the Iron Gargoyle series

• Continue writing the sequel to Storm of the Gods (my current Work In Progress, because I need to write something!)

• Start more giveaways for Storm Born

 
So, that's the major news. But is it the only thing I'm focusing on now? Of course not! I have a new book coming out next week! I'm absolutely thrilled about the upcoming release of Storm Born, and what better way to celebrate it's upcoming release that with giveaways?
 

 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

 

 

A single night can change your life… for the worst.

It’s been a century since the last Centennial Storm, the calamitous phenomenon that covered the world in disasters– tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, tsunamis, and dust storms– caused not by nature, but by alien creatures from another realm. The Stormkind.

Ava Reid tries not to think about that night, when she was caught in a hurricane and brought face to face with one of the Stormkind, the man with a dagger, and the agony she felt when he stabbed her with a crystal blade. Yet as she and the rest of Florida’s citizens begin to rebuild their lives, Ava can’t help but notice strange things happening around her. Things she seems to be causing. The gusts of wind and sudden floods attract the attentions of a mysterious stranger who leaves her clues, and the deadlier men following her.

It isn’t long before Ava is swept up into a wild conspiracy, led by a secret society that knows the truth about the Stormkind– and what their enemies have planned for the world she loves. If she wishes to protect her friends and her family, Ava must harness her strange new abilities and become part of the Stormkind society. Because if she loses control, there will be no force strong enough to stop her…

***

This is the first time I've done a Rafflecopter giveaway, so I'm excited to see how it will work. I'm also excited to see all the promotional posts coming in. There will be more snippets, more buy links, and more giveaways. 

 

While I'm still a little sad that I can't introduce the Agents of Limbo world just yet, I'm stoked for my new projects and even more so for upcoming releases. Never let it be said that I won't have a back-up plan for hiccups in Writing Life. 

 

Hope everyone has a great week! Cheers!

 

Amy
