Possession #1 Review
The Possession is the brain child of writers Michael Norwitz and Mary Ann Vaupel and while its not the usual series you’d expect to be covered on Soda and Telepaths – it’s still a fun romp that mixes up all the great things in Comic Books. Mythology, Superheroes, Punk Rock and Kinky Sex. What’s not to love?
Possession #1 is an interesting, if not disjointed, mapping out of the Erotica series we’ll come to know over Issues 1-4. Introducing us to the concept of War and Love as told in the forbidden love affair of Greek Gods Aphrodite and Ares. An affair that is neatly summarised as the B-plot that directs the actions and in-actions of the main protagonists throughout this issue.
RELATED: Possession #4 Review
Complications of incestuous Gods aside, we are introduced to an array of characters that are intertwined with one other in a variety of circumstances. Whether its the nervous employee (Cora) approaching her manager (Javier) or the HR Employee (Leilani) looking into money laundering of a Company Director (Ames). The constants of Sex and Power, specifically Power over Individuals, are explored as links to each character in our 22 page tour of the world of Possession.
Issue #1 comes to a head when Javier gets set upon a group of Monstrous looking Thugs in a local alleyway and rescued by a Punk Rock singer. Yes, that happens. As you can imagine, it’s spectacular!
This introductory issue into the decadent and seedy world of Santa Mira comes across as well thought out by writers Michael Norwitz and Mary Ann Vaupel. Though it may comes across as a little disjointed in the beginning, it does round itself out towards the end of the issue which will leave you curious for the rest of the series.
