Comic Review: Dark Reign The Hood

Dark Reign The Hood

Dark Reign The Hood

A lot has changed for The Hood who went from a small time criminal to a crime boss but can he stay on top? This Marvel series is written by Jeff Parker (Hulk, Thunderbolts) and illustrated by Kyle Hotz (The Nightman, Evil Ernie).

Things are going great for The Hood these days. He has a loyal crew that he can trust, the Avengers can’t touch them, he has more money than he knows what to do with and he is a member of the Illuminati. Yea things couldn’t be going better for the Hood except for one small thing. A masked woman has made it her mission to kill him. Not knowing why this is happening The Hood is doing his best just to stay alive and it’s only the beginning of his problems.

The Hood is such a great character that it really is a shame he doesn’t have an ongoing series. This time around he is more in tune with his powers. At the same time his personal life is spiraling out control. I like that he has to deal with the negative consequences of being a criminal rather than things always working out because it’s his book. A great series that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.

Very interesting story, good mix of supernatural and crime. Thanks to it being on MAX imprint the serious and dark tone of being a criminal is not held back.
