Mercy Sparx is a demon from Sheol who has been chosen to recover rogue angels from Heaven. Sheol is described as a place between Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. She is very good at her job. Suddenly, just when it seems that she can go back home, the plan changes. New information lead to a climatic confrontation.
Yes, I am being intentionally vague. If you like comics with a kick-butt-strong female lead with dubious morals and history, then this completed collection is for you.
This collection includes all of the volumes (#1-4) for this particular (Intro To Mercy) story arc. Cover art is included in this bundle. The next story arc is covered in "Mercy Sparx: Under New Management". I will read that series next, because it IS that good.
The characters are interesting and realistic to me. The story requires a leap of faith at the beginning. You have to believe in Heaven & Hell, angels, demons, sketchy evangelical preachers, etc.
My main complaint is that the red font on black background is nearly impossible to read on my Nook Tablet. Even when zoom-in function was applied...nothing legible appeared. I feel that I missed some important storytelling because of this issue. It would be great if someone could optimize it for the Nook Color/Tablet.
All other fonts & backgrounds were readable, and added to the plot. It was easier to know who was talking with different colored word bubbles for each character. A good idea, but poor execution in one aspect. Red on black was a bad choice for electronic media.
