If I had to describe this graphic novel in two words they would be 'strange' and 'inconsistent' When TV or movie tie in graphic novels are released they generally tend to read as deleted scenes or extra episodes This didn't read as either It read as a horror film set in an entirely different universe reminding me far too much of Insidious First up I have to say that I didn't care for the style of drawing at all It was very rudimentary and angular and nobody seemed to have eyeballs This would've been appropriate for a noir detective comic but it didn't work at all here It just looked lazy like the author couldn't be arsed to make the characters look anything like their TV counterparts The storyline itself held great potential as it shows how John reacted in the wake of Mary's death and how he turned into a hardened hunter I had always assumed that John grew up as a hunter until around season 6 when it was revealed that Mary's family were hunters and that John had been relatively clueless until her death In a way I'm glad I read this after season 7 concluded because I'm not sure I would've understood it properly had I read it when my friend purchased it around the time of season 2 So I went off on a bit of a tangent there What I'm trying to say is that the storyline had so much potential but didn't uite get there It could've been really heartwrenching showing John in a severe state of depression after Mary's death There could've been some wonderfully awkward moments as he learned to fight monsters and a transformation of John from clueless n00b to hardened slayer It could've added many layers to the Azazel storyline which to this day still leaves me feeling like it was missing something Instead we got this really weird Insidious esue story that read like a feature film than an additional episode This random dude in a duster who looks not unlike Hugh Jackman's awful interpretation of Van Helsing is the monster hunting Mr Miyagi to John Winchester's Daniel LaRusso John is certain that a hellhound killed his wife and they follow the markings on a hellhound's tooth long story to an evil hotel The hotel is something of an enigma in the nearby town with residents aware that something isn't uite right but content to leave it the hell alone until the next hunter comes asking John and weird duster man encounter rain hail okay a mini rockslide and shine trying to get to this hotel The paranormal forces surrounding the mountain throw everything they have at John and co trying to keep them away from this hotel When they eventually reach the hotel John is thrown to an endless loop of all his worst fears John eventually breaks free and weird duster man calls a hellhound to heel revealing that he's been manipulating John all along Duster man wasn't responsible for Mary's death but he's been helping John develop into the hardened demon hunter he's destined to become John kills the hellhound and duster man and reunites with Sam and Dean beginning the long journey to where we are today Like I said it's weird The story was no doubt cool and I'd LOVE to see the evil hotel turned into an original film but

This graphic novel preuel to the hit CW television show written by series Executive Producer Peter Johnson gives readers an incredible never before seen look into the mythos of the series After witnessing t. A few years ago Wildstorm Comics produced several preuel Supernatural comic books of which this was the first one All of them follows John Winchester as he drags his two young sons across the length and breath of the United States hunting for the creature that killed the boys mother The story is pretty average given that it covers some of the early lessons that the inexperienced John Winchester must learn as a hunter We get a road trip to Harvelle's the bar that serves as a base for hunter's for a few seasons in the series but otherwise there is little that is familiar John does get a few answers to his uest at the end but I'm not sure that the journey was worth the pain he has to go through to get them The boys don't really feature that much in this one Sam is just a baby and Dean is about 4 years old at this pointThe artist is trying very hard to be Mike Mignola in this book it's not bad but at times it's a little unclear what is going on No attempt is made to make the characters in the book anything like those in the series which is fine for Sam and Dean but less so for John who bears no resemblance to Jeffrey Dean Morgan in any wayAll in all an average and fairly forgettable addition to the series
