Killadelphia is increasingly feeling like a vampire spin on Hamilton only this time the minorities aren’t just playing the role of the founding fathers, but carving out their independence with a violent reckoning.
In this issue writer Rodney Barnes largely focused on Topper, a slave that fought for the Confederate army and earned his freedom. Topper took his family to the frontier and enjoyed a quiet life until tragedy struck. Barnes has found a way to make these remorseless and killer vampires sympathetic.
Jason Shawn Alexander crafts these jarring and striking pages with memorable action sequences. Luis Nct doesn’t use a wide color palette, but his restraint makes the pages that much more powerful.
Killadelphia is such an amazing title and this creative team continues to be a can’t miss read.
