Review: ★★★★☆


The Crow Memento Mori has been one of the more interesting series, I’ve read involving the Crow. David was a devout alter-boy that was struck down at a young age in such a violent manner that he was reborn as The Crow. The Crow is a vessel of vengeance. It is the nature of the creature. What if, just what if the person that has more faith in god then the vengeance that was provided before him. The story brings about the question of righteousness. The book gives us a surprise guest and an ending totally worth the pages they are printed on…The comic is the Crow and it means to stay that way. Dell’Edera’s art continues to work really well with the dark and sketchy style that reminds us of James O’Barr’s art on the original. The back up story follows a person turned into the Crow after a suicide. It actually takes the Crow concept into a different way and we get to see the plight of another’s point of view. The Memento Mori series is a fantastic return to the Crow and I hope IDW continues to publish more episodes.
