Casting a giant shadow across the blasted landscape of a post-apocalyptic Japan comes the wandering gaijin Temple O’Rourke. Widely known and feared as the White Devil, he and his diminutive dragon companion Byrd stumble upon the tragic handiwork of a demented scientist who is rightly called The Butcher!
In the grim and desolate world of post-apocalyptic Japan, few names strike as much fear in the hearts of people as that of Temple O’Rourke, a wandering gaijin known to all as the White Devil. Accompanied by his trusty dragon companion, Byrd, O’Rourke roams the blasted landscape, seeking out those in need and dispensing brutal justice to those who would harm the innocent.
In the pages of White Devil #1, the debut issue of a recent comic book series from Silverline, readers are thrust headfirst into O’Rourke’s dangerous world. The story, penned by R.A. Jones and illustrated by Jaxon Renick, begins with the White Devil and Byrd stumbling across the horrific work of a mad scientist known as The Butcher.
As they investigate the gruesome scene, O’Rourke and Byrd quickly realize that they are dealing with a deranged individual who cares nothing for human life. With his trademark stoicism and deadly skills, O’Rourke sets out to bring The Butcher to justice, no matter the cost.
The artwork in White Devil #1 is top-notch, with Renick’s pencils and Keeney’s inks bringing the dystopian world to vivid life. The colors by Phil Leon are appropriately muted, evoking the bleakness of the setting, while Mike W. Belcher’s lettering adds an extra layer of depth to the characters’ dialogue.
Jones’ script, meanwhile, is a masterful blend of action, suspense, and character development. O’Rourke is a fascinating protagonist, a man of few words but immense power and determination. Byrd, meanwhile, provides a touch of levity to the proceedings, with his wise-cracking banter and adorable design.
Overall, White Devil #1 is an impressive debut issue that sets the stage for what promises to be a thrilling and brutal series. Fans of post-apocalyptic fiction, dark fantasy, and action-packed comics will find plenty to love in the adventures of Temple O’Rourke and his faithful dragon companion.
