My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A vivid graphic novel masterfully authored and illustrated!

"Gabriel," masterfully authored by Jim Alexander and illustrated by David Hill and Mick Trimble, presents a gripping narrative that intertwines the realms of angels and demons within an alternative Scotland. In this vivid graphic novel, the lines between the divine and the diabolical blur as heavenly and hellish entities manifest as tangible forces in the world.

The story unravels against a backdrop of a demon's destructive rampage across the streets of Glasgow, a malevolent force that inflicts chaos and horror. However, the protagonist, Stewart Gabriel, is grappling with his own inner battles that take precedence over the external turmoil. The intricate interplay between the celestial conflict and Stewart's personal struggles adds depth to the storyline, immersing readers in a tale that resonates on both cosmic and human levels.

The collaboration between Alexander's skillful storytelling and Hill and Trimble's evocative illustrations creates a visually captivating experience. The vivid imagery brings to life the clash between the ethereal and the earthly, capturing the essence of each character's journey.

"Gabriel" stands as a testament to the creative synergy between author and illustrators. With meticulous attention to detail, the graphic novel presents a seamless blend of supernatural elements and raw human emotion. This alternative Scotland serves as an immersive backdrop, enhancing the narrative's uniqueness and intrigue.

In this thought-provoking graphic novel, readers are invited to explore the convergence of divine and mortal realms and the complexities of inner and outer conflicts. "Gabriel" is a captivating fusion of storytelling and artistry that transcends genres, making it a must-read for graphic novel enthusiasts seeking a compelling and visually striking narrative. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
