HAPPY MONDAY ALL ,  seeing as Saturday was free comic book day . I decided to do a graphic novel as a review today. BLACK MAGICK volumne 1 the awakening by Greg Rucka . This graphic novel blew me away 

                              BOOK BLURB

Collecting the first five issues of the critically-acclaimed new series from creators GREG RUCKA (Lazarus, Star Wars: Shattered Empire) and NICOLA SCOTT (Secret Six, Earth-2). Rowan Black is a detective with the Portsmouth PD... and a witch, two aspects of her life she has struggled to keep separate. Now someone is targeting Rowan, someone who knows her secrets and means to expose her... or worse.
                             MY REVIEW
    Is it wrong to have a girl crush on a character in a graphic novel . Well I must say I did and this comic had me hooked from the very first page. This is a supernatural thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole read . Let me introduce you to Rowan Black, a detective and a witch. She is a strong witch and a great detective, struggling to keep both aspects of her life separate . But when someone is targeting her both her worlds are going to collide.
  The author has created such strong complex characters . Rowan is one kick ass detective that will take anyone down that gets in her way. But she has secrets that she doesn't want anyone to know about. She is tough and no nonsense. The supporting characters are varied and also deep and complex.
  The illustrations are done in mostly grey shades which adds to the over all darkness of the book. Which in my opinion makes for one great addition to the story . Mr Rucka takes us on such an intense journey that will keep you flipping pages . I must say that he is a power house when it comes to writing a graphic novel. The way he writes is complex and witty.  This is a book for all those people that love Walking Dead and Crime fiction novels .
