SERIES PREMIERE! 'SINS OF THE FATHER,' Part One-Featuring the show-stopping talents of SPAWN series artist JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER and the writer behind such hit shows as Wutang: An American Saga, Marvel's Runaways, and Starz's American Gods-RODNEY BARNES. When a small-town beat cop comes home to bury his murdered father-the revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr.-he begins to unravel a mystery that leads him down a path of horrors that will shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires. Welcome to KILLADELPHIA.

A cop with a murdered father. A journal with an insane theory.
Vampires are killing in Philadelphia, and they are there in some small part due to John Adams.
Rodney Barnes (Boondocks, Marvel's Runaways) and Jason Shawn Alexander (Spawn, Frostbite) bring a reeDICulous premise to dark fruition. If you haven't seen Alexander's work, it's a healthy mix of Bill Sienkiewicz and Danijel Zezelj that lives in its own scritchy scratchy world. If you like some bleak with your wow, this is a fine place to start.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
