THE DEBUT OF SISTER SHANNON! Apr 10, 2006
Warrior Nun Areala Pocket Manga #1 collects the regular comic series Vol. 1 issues 1 - 3 and Vol. 2 issues 1 - 3 in this full color graphic novel featuring one of Antarctic's most popular characters. The series was created, written and drawn by Antarctic press founder Ben Dunn. The book introduces us to Sister Shannon Masters, a nun who is part of an elite Catholic Church sect of soldiers known as Warrior Nuns who battle demonic evil in the never ending battle between good and evil. Sister Masters is showing remarkable proficiency as a fighter and the church soon assigns her two sectors in New York that are hers to guard. She's reassured that there has been no trouble in these sectors for many years...until now of course.
A powerful and centuries old wizard named Salvius Julianus has hatched a plot to sacrifice all of New York to free the fallen angel Lucifer from his prison. This does not sit well with Heaven or the rest of Hell for that matter. Hell fears Lucifer will again wage war on Heaven...a war which took Hell eons to recover from. The demon lord Orcus sends his servant, the beautiful demon princess Lillith forth to try and stop Julianus and his own cadre of wizards and demons. Sister Masters is drawn into the battle and soon finds herself imbued with the spirit of Areala, the first warrior nun and Valkyrie turned angel. She finds herself aided in battle by Shotgun Mary, a former warrior nun who left the order to fight evil in her own way, and Father Crowe, a member of the special order of magic priests. Lillith attempts to help the group as well but Areala sees the demoness as just as evil and rejects her help. It's a race against time to stop Julianus from releasing Satan.
I hadn't read this book when it originally appeared in regular comic format some 11 or 12 years ago but was pleasantly surprised. The story may not be complex and it's a bit light on character development but it's filled with action and sexy women swinging big broadswords and firing guns at ugly demons. In other words it's really fun. The secondary story has Areala out to fight a modern day group of Nazis who have allied themselves with demons. Dunn's art is best described as a cross between Manga and traditional American style comic art, as most books from Antarctic Press are and it's fantastic. Lively and dynamic and helped out by a team of bold colorists, the action truly leaps off the page. Great value too, being in the Manga format. Extremely well done!
