I saw the cover of this and who the writer was and did a double take. Is this The Method Man? Yes it is. I have to say right here in the post I was so into it; I was chuckling out loud. Here is the description of the graphic novel as it reads from the back cover: “An ancient evil of unfathomable power plots the unspeakable- the destruction of the mortal realm and beyond .

Method Man adds another notch to his belt by lending the concept and "starring" in this quirky supernatural kung-fu fantasy. As Peerless Poe, a descendant of Cain, he gets plenty of opportunity to strike poses while striking through waves of Lilith's spawn--and that's just the first few pages. In fact, this slim volume is so dense that the main character's background and the details of the premise itself are telegraphed through a text piece at the beginning of the book.

I got this title as an eBook from my library and I was disappointed in the quality of the text. The images were fine and the art work was easy to follow but the text was blurry and small and very hard to read.

You would think someone would go through and retouch the graphic novel for digital distribution and not just scan the pages into a p ...more
Some comedic elements - And it looks pretty good - but composition-wise some of these frames seem like they were put together in a rush - Particularly some of the villains - demons look like cartoons - which undermines the premise of evil. Maybe it was intentional to creat this discord, but it didn't't really work for me. And why miss this opportunity to throw in some cameos from the Wu? who was this clean-cut yahoo sidekick? Who is this old master - Cardboard cutouts without depth. I love me so ...more
This short graphic novel written by Method Man from the Wu-Tang clan and is a fun read. Peerless Poe, is a private investigator and former member of the secret Order of the Sacred Method, Poe is nervous about forging an alliance with a group of people who have exploited in the past. The new threat that they are challenging unleashes dark energies capable of destroying normal men.
I loved the mythos and the worldbuilding. The action and wit was pretty straight-forward. However the angsty ending was really unnecessary and killed the story for me, otherwise this graphic novel would've gotten a higher rating.
