T&A superhero sleaze about a stripper with psychic powers fighting evil voodoo forces in New Orleans. She's either naked or showing T&A on every other page. This book owes more to the Victoria's Secret catalog than an Aleister Crowley book.

Coisas que acontecem quando Alan Moore pega num personagem: as suas características típicas ficam esquecidas enquanto a história avança num enredo de características místicas ou esotéricas. Foi o caso de Voodoo, originalmente uma personagem da Wildstorm com a capacidade mística de saber se alguém estava possuído por agentes de uma espécie alienígena invasora. Moore coloca tudo isso de lado e mergulha a personagem em Nova Orleães, numa história que é uma boa desculpa para o autor brincar com os í ...more

I'll be honest...the one thing that caused me to crack this open was that it was written by Alan Moore. Voodoo is a character that's never caught my interest, past or present, as she's essentially an excuse for mild comics sleaze -- and ever here Voodoo herself is presented with copious t&a.

If you can hold your nose and look past the more excessive aspects of the artwork (which is generally okay, and sometimes actually quite interesting when you look at what's in the panels; it's not as visu

New Orleansia piinaava sarjamurhaaja iskee jälleen: kadulta löydetään kuollut nainen, jonka verettömässä ruumissa on viitisenkymmentä pistohaavaa. Olisiko kyse jonkinlaisista rituaalimurhista?

Tapahtumien pyörteisiin tempaistaan myös kaupunkiin vastikään saapunut Priscilla Kitaen, entinen WildC.A.T.s -supersankarijoukon jäsen ja nykyinen eksoottinen tanssija (vähän päälleliimattua, mutta kaipa tälläkin muutama ylimääräinen lehti saatiin kaupaksi), joka saa taustatukea mystistä hotellia pyörittävä

Alan Moore writing minor Wildcats character Voodoo, but ignoring everything about her character to date and instead choosing to write a completely unconnected (oh man) New Orleans-based voodoo story, and a pretty sub-par one at that. I mean, when the first page of a voodoo story has an older black man called "Papa" - gee, who can that be? - you can tell there's not much surprise to be had.

Entirely forgettable, and not really worth reading.

Very different to the New 52 series of the same name. Only thing they share is Voodoo's real name and profession as an exotic dancer. That makes (a little) more sense in this story, given the serial-killer-supernatural aspect of the story. Only four issues long, it didn't really have much time to dig deep, but there was still a lot of stuff about voodoo. And not a daemonite in sight...

Este libro lo empecé dos veces... Y las dos veces me gustó, así que no sé por qué fui tan nabo de dejarlo. No creo que lo retome antes del año que viene, pero espero que sí sea pronto.
