REVIEW: Demon Days: Rising Storm #1
In Demon Days: Rising Storm #1 by Peach Momoko, with English adaptation & dialogue by Zack Davisson and lettering by Ariana Maher, with a main cover by Momoko, we get Part Three of the ongoing Yashida Saga… and it’s another gorgeous and compelling entry in one a series Marvel Blog named one of the Top 12 Marvel Comics of 2021.
Rising Storm #1
Simply put, if you haven’t been reading Demon Days, you’ve been missing out, and Rising Storm is absolutely no exception.
This story pits our hero, Mariko, against this universe’s version of Thor and Storm. We’ve known these Momoko’s versions of the characters would be coming for a while now, and it’s exciting to finally see them in action! As with each of the four previous issues in this series, this one is filled with tons of breathtaking art, and the story provides a lot of intrigue and family drama to keep up with the visuals.
I am especially excited to see what happens in the next issue of this book, both because of the arrival of a familiar Marvel Comics character on the final page of the issue.
One final note: the recap page for this issue includes a trigger warning for depictions of suicide, along with a note that directs anyone who might be considering harming themselves to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255). While these warnings are sometimes controversial, I myself have included them (even in my writing for StarTrek.com), and I feel they are an important and helpful inclusion.
