While the story isn't anything significant (a MacGuffin quest with three characters chasing it, most of whom aren't developed to any extent), this book captures the aesthetics of Hellgate perfectly, and that more than anything else would be the reason to read this. It's such a unique concept for a world, and the imagery here focuses on that, so even though the story isn't that important, it's still worth a look.

The plot is - wait. What plot?! Lots of glossy pages can make up for a weak storyline and poor execution. I thought the game (from what I've read and heard about it) was pretty cool; but the comic surely isn't.

I love this Trilogy... From start to finish it is fast paced and action packed.

If you love the idea of Demons, Knights, Magic, & Modern Day Warriors this is the series for you.

Based on the game. Hellgate: London

Note: If you are a religious person this is not the book for you.

A very good precursor to the Hellgate London Trilogy of novels as well as the game itself. Solid artwork and enough charater development to bring you in wihtout becoming tedious. As a acomic book geek and fan of the hellgate london realm, I felt this fit in quite nicely.
