    Reserrectionists are a group of people that for three millennium has been trying to pull of the same heist to free their souls. Yes, once they were Egyptians and the evil Pharaoh trapped in the “afterlife” with him. The "afterlife" means not heaven or anything instead are they reborn over and over again and they need to be unlocked to know that they have lived before. It was a bit confusing in the beginning since the story just started without any real explanation to anything going on. Just sit Reserrectionists are a group of people that for three millennium has been trying to pull of the same heist to free their souls. Yes, once they were Egyptians and the evil Pharaoh trapped in the “afterlife” with him. The "afterlife" means not heaven or anything instead are they reborn over and over again and they need to be unlocked to know that they have lived before. It was a bit confusing in the beginning since the story just started without any real explanation to anything going on. Just sit tight and try to keep up kind of opening. Fasten your seatbelt and we will take you on a ride. And, what a ride. I admit that I was a bit skeptic in the beginning, but then the story started to unfold and the character's past and present started to make sense and that is when I started to enjoy the story. And, of course it ended with a cliffhanger. The art part was quite good, I think it suited the story even though large breasted women seemed to be the only option when it came to drawing women. But that is hardly anything new when it comes to graphic novels. I enjoyed reading Resurrectionists, it was a perfect read when I needed a break from my books. I received this copy from the Dark Horse Books through Edelweiss in return for an honest review! Thank you!

    This One Will Really Grab You Have you ever read a TP where you sort of enjoy it? The drawing is good, the characters have their moments; there are bits of dialogue or plot twists that you admire. Ultimately you appreciate the effort and skill that went into the project, but you just weren't all that entertained? Yeah, me too. And this sort of started out that way. This book collects the first six issues of "The Resurrectionists" and at the start it looks sort of dark and a This One Will Really Grab You Have you ever read a TP where you sort of enjoy it? The drawing is good, the characters have their moments; there are bits of dialogue or plot twists that you admire. Ultimately you appreciate the effort and skill that went into the project, but you just weren't all that entertained? Yeah, me too. And this sort of started out that way. This book collects the first six issues of "The Resurrectionists" and at the start it looks sort of dark and angsty and you suspect you're holding a sort of supernatural frantic caper noir. The cover drawing of the group that looks like a "Reservoir Dogs" group photo if the reservoir had been in Cairo doesn't help. Well, I was totally wrong and sort of a jerk. A third of the way in I woke up to the fact that what I was skim/reading was really very good, and I went back and started over again in order to pay closer attention. (Actually, that's a good idea anyway. This is one of those books in which the first issue or two can be confusing, but if you then go back and start over again you actually understand everything that's going on.) The deal here is pretty straightforward. MIDDLING SPOILERS AHEAD. The Resurrectionists were tomb robbers. They were all killed by an evil Pharoah. They are doomed to be reborn over and over and when they are reborn they work as thieves for the also reborn Pharoah. One by one they "unlock", which means they suddenly awaken to their previous lives and all of their previous skills. They also remember that they are unwilling slaves to whatever the current incarnation of Pharoah is. Once they wake up they are killed by Pharoah's minions, and the process repeats. Well, this time the unlocked Resurrectionists band together, (they can find and unlock each other), and decide to go after Pharoah and break their endless curse of servitude and illumination. That's where this TP ends. Rousing conclusion to follow, one hopes. Now, this is a deeply cool plot. It is laid out piece by piece, but once you get the idea of what's going on, it's pretty clear. (Hence the advice to reread chapters one and two.) The story flips back and forth from Egypt and the original Resurrectionists to now and the current incarnations of the Resurrectionists. It can get tricky because each character has multiple looks and multiple names depending on where we are on the reincarnation spectrum. (The illustrator did something very clever to help you. One character always has a ponytail in every incarnation - slave, samurai, cowgirl, and so on.) This would be hopeless if the drawings weren't absolutely clear about which character was which in every panel. If every character looks like the others, then it's impossible to follow what's happening. Here, the pencil work is so good, even when there's lots of action or scene setting, you always know who is in the panel and where the action is set. Every now and then a character is presented in his current incarnation, with his earlier images standing one by one behind him. This is an arresting effect, and it helps you remember who is who. (Or they do an upside down thing, like on the cover.) The upshot is that you have a great storyline that will go on for a long time. Then you have each Resurrectionist's backstory. You have their shared Egypt story and their shared current story, as well as each Resurrectionist's individual current story. Plus individual recountings of how each became unlocked. And, of course, they also have memories of hundreds of other intervening unlockings, which pop in and out of this story. So, this is a rich and remarkably well-crafted stew that grabbed and held my interest. Very sharp stuff. (Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-54-days Adobe ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    Great concept, great art, but somehow it just didn't hook me. Definitely worth a try.

    This was quite good, though I do wish the artist would draw women with the same respect he shows male characters. Grating flaw in an otherwise compelling book.
