Reviews of HellWish by Stephen Schrum

Michael Foster reviewed on July 5, 2016

Very enjoyable, and totally worth the money (it's free)!

Seemed puerile at first--until I realized, to my delight, that the beginning is a setup for a really clever dramatic situation.

The author explains, in his notes, that he used still shots from Second Life as a basis for most of the images. Although I'm sure it would have been better with professionally-illustrated panels, the result is more than adequate to convey the action, and I would rather have the ability to read it now instead of waiting forever for some yet-to-be-drawn illustrations.

The protagonist reminds me of Enoch Root in Neal Stephenson's books. He's intelligent, resourceful, and can kick some ass.
