Synopsis: On the run from their former masters in the Department of Extra-Human Affairs, Revenant is forced to reveal his secret when a tragedy hits. Meanwhile, the shape-shifting Nephilim have recruited the Merovingian Prince to fulfill an ancient prophecy and finally free their fathers, the Grigori, from their extra-dimensional prison. How will the Alpha Gods cope with pressures that threaten to tear the team apart?
Review: Due out on Graphic Novel soon is Alpha Gods Revelation, which comprises all four chapters of the final part of Ian Sharman’s epic story of superhuman’s vs Nephilim and supercharged angels.
The Alpha Gods are on the run and the Nephilim had plans to resurrect an evil darkness that this world has not known for some time.
The use of Catholic and Christian based mythology throughout this series has been fantastic and made for an intriguing story as have the various characters that comprise Ian Sharman’s Alpha Gods team. Characters that despite their superhuman powers have an abundance of human failings.
I liked the reveal of one of these characters becoming invisible and not telling the rest of the team that he had this ability. And how Sharman uses that invisibility power as a means to address the invisibility of a mental illness such as depression and how a person with depression can often hide this fact from those closest to them.
Alpha Gods is a brilliant series that really deserves to have much more recognition from comic book fans that it has. The story is an epic tale and the characters are incredibly easy to relate too and actually speak like real people.
J.J. Alonso’s artwork throughout this third installment of the Alpha Gods story is fairly impressive. I particularly liked how he handled the death of Agent Beta on page 14 and how he later handles Dan’s suicide.
Overall. A great end to the Alpha Gods story, which Ian Sharman started way back in 2005. If you like mythology and stories that involve angels and demons and damnation then you should really check out Alpha Gods. It has it all.
