Sons of the Devil #1 Review

Written by Marley Ghizzone


Travis, a seemingly average guy just trying to muddle through life, is quickly confronted with the opportunity to dig into his family history and possible find information about parents he never knew.

I went into the first issue of Sons of the Devil knowing literally nothing about it. Then I read it, as you do, and still had no idea what it was. So I looked up a summary and read the author’s note at the end. Sons of the Devil is about an adult orphan named Travis who has ties to a lethal cult.

He was born into something nefarious but was put into the system before he knew anything of it. The series, over the span of three decades, is going to explore cults, family ties, and the darker side of human nature. But, I didn’t need to have a clear view of the trajectory of the whole series to be interested.


Revelation did not spoil its own mystery by putting one million speech bubbles filled with expository dialogue and narration all over the place. Instead, there was a heavy reliance on the actual drawings and the scenes which were dark and graphic.

The story was captivating and intriguing. I really wish comics weren’t such a fast read because it’s going to be painful waiting week to week for new installments of Sons of the Devil. I loved it and highly recommend it.

Rating: 9/10
