Review:

Kate and Cate are back for more supernatural adventures and family drama. They're already reeling from the news that their mother sold Cate's soul, but that split Kate out into her own being, so you win some, you lose some. In any case, the pair must deal with some winged enemies from the heavens before dealing with the demon wreaking havoc on Earth.

Exorsisters exudes a certain charm between writer Ian Boothby's fun story and artist Gisele Lagace's incredible artwork. It is a perfect combination and I am so happy to see this series return. It has not missed a beat as we head into its second arc.

It's great to see how Kate and Cate rub off on one another. Kate was always the bad one and Cate was the prim and proper one. As we learned more about them, understanding that Kate is Cate's soul, this made some sense. This issue shows the roles reversed at times, which leads to some humorous reactions. It also leads to a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, but I won't spoil that here.

Lagace has a signature style that really suits Exorsisters well. Each of her characters has a tremendous amount of personality on display. You get a sense who they are based on their appearance and how they carry themselves. Kate is more relaxed and comfortable while Cate is more steadfast. Three are also some nice cameos from some of Legace's other work.

I love how the angels are depicted in this issue. They're completely out of their element with Kate and Cate. They're basically all goody-two-shoes, bumbling through their jobs.

While Exorsisters leans more towards the comedic side of the supernatural, it doesn't let you forget that we're dealing with demons and monsters. There's a chilling scene where a demon is bargaining with some innocent people about who he should possess next. It's a lose-lose situation for all of them while this creature holds all the power.

Colorist Pete Pantazis makes these pages glow with an otherworldly energy. The demon is holding the people captive in large purple hands while he looks on with fiery red eyes. This is a despicable creature through and through. I really hope we get to see him get his comeuppance soon. Letterer Taylor Esposito uses a different font for him that conveys his snide nature all wrapped in black word balloons.

Exorsisters hit with a bang in its first arc with a great premise and some nice twists and turns. As it embarks on its second storyline, it ups the game considerably. This is the horror comedy you need in your life.
