A priest jumps off a roof and impales himself on a fence. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. No? Thought not, but can you imagine the punch line?! No? It’s not very funny is it? But! If you think it would involve some massive century spanning papal conspiracy then Boom! Studios has just the comic for you!
Revelations #1 is a hard-boiled, rain soaked detective story that takes place in Vatican City. After a priest falls to his death under suspicious circumstances, a cardinal turns to his old friend Northern, a former police detective and current chain smoker, to help solve the case. What follows is a fairly straight forward detective story elevated by Ramos’ kinetic art and Jenkins’ irreverent wit.
