22gigantes.com - When Father Daniel suspects that one of his parishioners is possessed, he has no choice but to perform an exorcism. Too bad the monsignor does not believe him and the only exorcist still in the diocese is Father Adam, with whom Daniel shares a less than lovely history...A gothic mix of horror, drama, tragedy, and romance between the sacred and the profane, Ninety-Nine Righteous Men is K. M. Claude’s terrifying and tantalizing debut into comics.

A unique tale of lust, love, and sacrifice through the lens of the Gothic By Kara Title: Ninety-Nine Righteous Men by K. M. ClaudeGenre: Horror, graphic novelRating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ +0.5Tl;DR: Ninety-Nine Righteous Men perfectly blends the tragedy of unrequited love with Gothic horror into a beautifully illustrated graphic novel that can only be described as a Catholic’s nightmare.You know a book is good when you dock half a star for not being long enough.K. M. Claude’s graphic novel begins with two somewhat unlikely heroes, priests Daniel and Adam, who have a rather tumultuous and complicated past together, as they are drawn into the web of a demon possessing one of the parishioners. What transpires is a tale of tormented souls united by lust’s cruel embrace.The art style for Ninety-Nine Righteous Men is gorgeous. It’s a style reminiscent of both Eastern and Western comics by utilizing a more Western anatomical style with a more manga-like action style. What Claude creates is some impressive juxtapositions with the rigid piousness of Catholic imagery alongside the pliant sensuality of the demon. At times, I’m hesitant to read graphic novels because I typically hate the style of traditional Western comics (mainly the gritty, rather sloppy style of super hero comics), but Claude’s art style is clean, precise, and deliciously detailed.One of the things I greatly appreciated was the balance between sensuality, sexuality, and the quiet moments of action and dialogue. When I first began reading, I worried the entire graphic novel would be reminiscent of the game Katherine, but Claude deftly balances all aspects of the work until it comes to a head at the climax (puns intended).As an ex-Catholic, I felt comfortable in the discomfort of Adam and Daniel’s wholly Catholic world. Often what disturbs them, disturbs me, and Claude highlights the rather gruesome aspects of Catholicism that tend to disturb small children with wandering eyes. While what’s discussed in the book might anger some more devout Catholics, we must all remember that priests are humans and should be treated as such. If you’re a fan of Anne Rice’s style of sensual Southern Gothic with Catholic guilt, you’ll probably enjoy Ninety-Nine Righteous Men.My biggest complaint with the book is a good one. I wanted more. I didn’t want the book to end. I wanted more on Daniel and Adam’s backstories, their lives before the priesthood, their encounters together, and even Caleb’s life before the story takes place. While the characters are well fleshed-out, I think they could have been explored more.Ninety-Nine Righteous Men is a unique tale of lust, love, and sacrifice through the lens of the Gothic, and I look forward to reading more by K. M. Claude in the future. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. A priest facing his demons By MizStorge This graphic novel is a beautifully written and illustrated gothic horror story about demonic possession with a powerful subtext. Father Daniel is a priest who is clearly dedicated to his vocation, and he becomes very concerned when one of the members of his parish music ministry begins to behave in an unusual manner. The tale focuses on the issue of consent, and examines the kind of self-loathing that results from concealing aspects of oneself in order to be accepted. What happens, of course, is that it destroys you from inside. Father Daniel finds himself in the unenviable position of needing to find an exorcist to help his parishioner...but can he find salvation for his own conflicted soul? The answer will make him see his past in a new light. Gripping reading, mature subject matter. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
