Book Review: Cherubs


Cherubs starts off in Heaven following a pack of misfit cherubs that aren't really needed anymore. They're all pretty much chilling when the first murder in Heaven takes place. Yes, that's right I said the first murder in Heaven. I didn't know murders could occur there, definitely not the band of cherubs who were quickly accused of it. So the group does the only thing they can think of at the time...run to Earth! Of course when they arrive no one on Earth thinks twice about some tiny baby looking men with wings is weird. Hey it's a comic, anything can happen.

Once they arrive on Earth they meet Mary, not that one of course. She is on the run as well and they band together to fight evil. Of course you'll have to read the book to find out if they come out on top or not.

Cherubs is filled with detailed whimsical illustrations and gritty writing. It was a good short read and left me wanting to read more. Bryan Talbot and Mark Stafford did a great job on this book and can't wait to read/see more from them.
