Days of Hate #1, from Image, brings us up close and personal to vivid hatred, deep smoldering ashes of resentment, and fiery feelings of rage.

Written by Ales Kot, drawn by Danijel Zezelj, and colored by Jordie Bellaire, the first issue sets the scene for us; it’s USA in 2022. Things are nasty. Firebombs, violence, intolerance. It’s time to go undercover and blow things up. It’s time to investigate the activities of suspected radicals against the state. No one is safe.

The dialogue is terse, the times are tense. The drawings are thick, hard lines, lots of black. Blanket color, setting the bleak, violent tone. Expressively illustrated, with sweeping vistas, tight action and drama with thoughtfully placed beats of silence caressing poetic transitions between scenes.

But don’t mistake poetry for passivism, this comic kicks hard. Days of Hate could be the hot new title of the year for you! The one you’re hoping to find!

Image comics, Days of Hate #1, $3.99 for 30 pages of content. Mature readers.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
