Read full description of the books:
Mitch Shelley is Resurrection Man, a man who can never die but, whenever he does, he is resurrected and imbued with a new power (psychokinetic powers, ability to manipulate lightning, water, etc.) and a vague new purpose to strive for. He also has no memory of the man he was before he was given this questionable gift of immortality. But Heaven and Hell are both after his long overdue soul and neither are being particularly pleasant going about it. There are also a pair of bounty hunters with powers of regeneration called The Body Doubles, Bonnie & Carmen, chasing Mitch.
Dan Abnett writes a fast paced and thrilling story of a cursed man forced on the run and thrown into baffling and nightmarish circumstances. From the opening chapter where Mitch’s plane goes down to the final scene in Metropolis, Abnett and long-time artist collaborator Andy Lanning set a blistering pace for the unfolding story.
I’ve not read anything about this character before but after reading this book I think he’s a pretty interesting dude. The Heaven and Hell angle gives this book a flavour of “Preacher” and “Hellblazer” (both superb comics) but the character himself and his skill set seem unique and original.
There was a strange plot hole in the middle of the book where the character jumped from the West coast to the East in the space of a couple of pages that was never addressed – but as a new reader to the character, maybe it’s something I don’t know about like that’s part of his powers or something to do with being resurrected. That and the weak ending are the only two complaints I have about the book.
Other than that, this is a great story of an interesting kind of hero finding his way in the crazy DC Universe. Fans of Batman will like the inclusion of Arkham Asylum in this book and Mitch winding up in Metropolis hints at more crossover appeal. Unfortunately the series was cancelled in September 2012 so there’s only going to be one more volume, but creators Abnett and Lanning have written other Resurrection Man books so I’ll definitely keep an eye out for those. Meanwhile “Dead Again” is an excellent addition to the “New 52” and well worth a look.
