    1. This was extremely entertaining Disturbing sometimes, little silly, but damn fine entertainment So Absolution is about a man who s a superhero who has had enough of the bullshit He works with the police force to stop criminals Except one day he stumbles upon a guy who is murdering children and replacing their body parts with toy doll parts It s sick, it s disgusting, and he s had enough John Dusk is living a broken life, not able to sleep because he sees the death of children and rapes and from [...]

    2. You ve seen the quote from Friedrich Nietzsche Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you That s this story in a nutshell We ve seen this tale before, but sometimes the pieces fit together perfectly and it feels right Sometimes the formula just works.John Dusk is a superpowered cop who has an aura he can manipulate mentally It rather looks like an opaque blue version of The [...]

    4. When reading Absolution, one could say that the book is just the Punisher with super powers And maybe it is a little bit, but at its heart the book is about a man and what he deems truth After everything, what does anything come down to except one man s beliefs, your own beliefs Everyone does what they believe to be true, whether right or wrong Sometimes it can be very wrong, otherwise there would not be laws to govern criminals, but oftentimes we do what we deem to be right John Dusk, the hero [...]

    5. After decades of serialize superhero stories there are now publishers putting out independent stories featuring supers that break the molds of the traditional books that have to keep the same characters, heroes and villains, fighting it out over and over again to keep selling books Absolution is book that takes on the idea of the hero who crosses the line and starts killing the criminals It is the typical challenge to the criminal justice system that seems to allow too many horrible people to ke [...]

    7. Author Christos Gage works an idea done by many writers in the past with a small twist The core idea is the psychological effect on peace officers who deal with rapists, murders, child molesters etc What happens when one of those peace officers decides to go over the line and deal their version of justice, i.e kills these threats to society The twist here is that Gage s peace officer is a super hero in a world where supers are just one arm of law enforcement John Dusk goes over the edge when he [...]

    10. This was my very first contact with writer Christos Gage and what a ride it was ABSOLUTION doesn t waste time setting up, it goes straight into action The premise is not new but it is well developed And, unlike other similar stories, it doesn t end with repent I was afraid that it might turn into a sappy story with him apologizing for his sins He does apologize for one thing I m not gonna tell you what , which is perhaps the only thing he should apologize for.

    11. I would say this is the best thing by Gage that I ve ever read read I thought it was really well done, and shows the moral, psychological, and ethical ramifications if a hero loses it and not in a Moore Ellis type of way The only complaint that I have is that it ended abruptly, or so I felt.
