Mar 31, Cale rated it it was ok. I saw the movie and didn't completely hate it, so I decided it was worth trying out the source material.

And I didn't completely hate that either. The movie did a fairly decent job of translating it to the screen.

The biggest knock is that it is almost beat for beat the same story as Men in Black, except with demons instead of aliens. Neither of the lead characters gets much development and the book doesn't have Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, whose charisma manage to sell some things , and the I saw the movie and didn't completely hate it, so I decided it was worth trying out the source material.

There are some decent action beats, but nothing too exciting. And the art style is weirdly out of alignment with the story - it's cartoonish, but with a surprising amount of gore.

It doesn't quite resonate right for me. It's honestly a very middle-of-the-road experience. I don't think the time spent reading it was wasted, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone either. Maybe later volumes do more and in more unique ways, but this first volume feels too familiar for its own good. Apr 06, Solace Winter rated it liked it. I bought this for half price at my local comic shop, because I had seen the movie and I love to compare. The movie The movie has fleshed out characters, or at least the main character is.

This is a quick telling of a great idea with no real depth to anyone or anything. There's no emotion. It's fast paced and tells a story that should be good, but not in a minute read.

It would be like watching an entire series in one half an hour episode of a show. Movies have a hard enough t I bought this for half price at my local comic shop, because I had seen the movie and I love to compare. Movies have a hard enough time in under 2 hours giving characters depth, this comic had no hope of doing that.

Again, the IDEA is brilliant, it just didn't work for how quick it was. Feb 09, Nicole rated it liked it. I want to say that I loved this book, but it is such a hard premise to follow. This book is packed with content people who saw the movie might remember, but that is also its downfall. The most memeorable parts of the movie are not in this book. Oct 10, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: The illustrations are too cartoony for me taste.

My guess is they are like that on purpose to lighten the dark, gory subject. The balance is off.

Interesting but not great, the world building is a bit clunky. This was good but I mainly read it because I had seen the movie and wanted to compare the two.

Awesome concept, wish there was more. It felt sort of rushed. Mar 24, Sara Kreps rated it liked it Shelves: Mar 06, Gabriella rated it really liked it Shelves: A good start to the Rest In Peace Department, for those of you who saw the movie before reading the graphic novel you will recognise many of the traits and ideas within.

The two main characters are a sheriff who died 99 years ago and due to retire and his new trainee, a fresh out of death copper.

The characters are well fleshed out and interesting with many unique and darker takes on the world around us.

I finally managed to get a copy of this. Here is my full review: May 27, Luke Zwanziger rated it it was ok Shelves: I picked this up in single issue form on Ebay and I am glad I didn't pay more for it. The premise sounded promising: An cop killed by a demon, brought back to serve years as an undead law enforcer. But what ensued in the following pages was menial dialog, cookie-cutter tropes and contrived action that only 12 year olds would appreciate no When I heard this was picked up for a film starring Ryan Reynolds Wolverine, Green Lantern, Deadpool , I figured I would take a gander at this miniseries.

While a young teen may have enjoyed this comic, I found it unsatisfying at nearly every turn. I can only hope that the film version drastically alters the vision of the series, but even then I might be non-plussed. A fun, quick read. I haven't yet seen the film so I won't make any comparisons to it; though the film is one of the reasons I decided to read the comic.

I like to read the book before I watch the film. The story was a bit sparse in some places, but I sort of thought this was a one-off so there wouldn't be much investing in the world building. Though, with the quickness of the story, it wasn't difficult to figure out the kind of mystery of who killed Nick.
