About White Druid and Michael Nero
White Druid and Michael Nero is a comic book series created by Steve Sellers and Michael Nunneley. The art and coloring is by Awosika Tosin. The lettering is done by Oluwadamilola Akinayo. The logo design is by Roland’s Kalnins.
Michael Nero is not your average detective. He has a door to the paranormal side of the universe and specializes in demonic activity. On top of that, Michael is witty and arrogant. He can see more about the the world than the average person and is not afraid to let you know that.
Michael has been known to team up with a character known as The White Druid. While The White Druid also has paranormal powers, he is not as powerful as he once was. Regardless, he still considers Michael Nero to be his apprentice.
Murders and demonic possession are afoot. People are being sacrificed to unlock demon power. Monsters are infiltrating corporate managers. Will The White Druid and Michael Nero be able to save the world from these creatures?
The sign of a good first issue is the balance between exposition and mystery. First issues with too much information can come off as boring. You want people to come back wanting more. At the same time, if a first issue is too mysterious it may leave readers confused and disinterested.
White Druid and Michael Nero #1 hits this balance very well. The first issue contains its own story. At the same time it excels at setting up the rest of the arc. We get a good feel for the personality of the main characters, as well as their mission.
Speaking of, the titular characters are the best part of White Druid and Michael Nero. Both characters have very distinct personalities. Michael is smart and egotistical. White Druid seems to be more reflective and kind. I am sure these character traits will become more important as the story progresses.
The artwork in White Druid and Michael Nero is pretty great. The character designs really fit the character’s personalities. I also liked the design of the demon shown in this issue. I felt that the coloring was the strongest point to the artwork.
I also really enjoyed the lettering of the issue. I thought the shadowboxes under the narration was a nice touch. I also enjoyed the changes in the speech balloons based on which entity was speaking.
Overall, I thought that White Druid and Michael Nero was an excellent kick-off for this series. I would recommend this book to those who like witty paranormal stories, such as Preacher. I would also recommend this book to those who like dark-business and paranormal stories, such as The Black Monday Murders. I can’t wait to see what the team has in store next!
