Comic – The Marquis: Inferno: C+

I picked this one up because it is written and illustrated by the illustrator of B.P.R.D., one of my favorite comic series. The art was on par with his work there, especially given the similar subject matter. The story, however, was a bit tedious. When the titular character was hunting down his infernal quarry, the pacing was fast and frantic, usually over within a few pages, but the one-way dialogs he would have with either himself or the statue of his patron saint were repetitive, overly wordy, and boring. The conversations between the captain of the city guard and his inquisitor boss were equally painful, and always the same, and occurred far too often.
