    I received this book from the author through a Goodreads Giveaway. I have read a lot of comics and graphic novels over the years.

However, I have not read any that attempt to delve into Christian spirituality in any meaningful way...until Blind Prophet. The concept is powerful and fairly unique. Daniel Prophet is a blind, autistic child who is also a piano savant. An experimental treatment causes him to be able to "see" into the spiritual realm. He can visualize demons and angels and even some future events. This is a great foundation for a story. Unfortunately, beyond the concept things fall a bit flat. the dialogue is stilted and uninspired. It is a good thing that the plot is interesting and compelling to make up for the difficult dialogue. The art is surreal and quite beautiful. But, when looked at as part of a sequential story, things seemed somewhat too static and lifeless for characters other than the angels and demons. Overall. I liked it and want to read more. I expect the writing and art to grow as the writer gains confidence and experience.

    I loved this comic. The first book (1-4) was fantastic. The art work is incredible and the story line is really interesting. I am so excited to see where book 2 goes with how the last one ended. Big cliffhangers.

    I won this book on Goodreads. The graphics are great. It's a powerful message for today's world. It would be a good comic book for preteens and teenagers. I won this book on Goodreads.

    Blind Prophet offers a unique perspective on a comic book hero in the form of a boy named Daniel Prophet. Daniel is blind, autistic, a stellar piano player, and is able to detect the guardian angels and the serpent demons of those he comes across. He lives with his mother, Diana, who is a single parent, because his biological father, Brian, was a shallow scumbag that ended his relationship on the basis that he could not want a disabled child (But then again, he really did not want any children n Blind Prophet offers a unique perspective on a comic book hero in the form of a boy named Daniel Prophet. Daniel is blind, autistic, a stellar piano player, and is able to detect the guardian angels and the serpent demons of those he comes across. He lives with his mother, Diana, who is a single parent, because his biological father, Brian, was a shallow scumbag that ended his relationship on the basis that he could not want a disabled child (But then again, he really did not want any children nor did he want Diana to practice her religion. In essence, he wanted to control Diana physically and mentally and she realized that enough was enough). Anyway, Daniel won the opportunity to play piano for the president, but comes across a hurdle when it comes to his visions that he develops when a doctor performs a procedure to help him with his ability to see. Throughout this text, a collection of four comic books, Daniel becomes connected to the Catholic church and makes his way to Washington D.C., which is perhaps the most hysterical place to search for serpent demons. I would imagine that ninety-something percent of the people would remain unseen, but remained covered with serpents if this was taking place in the real world. While the concept of this piece was intriguing and I admire the fact that an autistic savant is being depicted in this piece, I feel as if the quality of this piece was very cheap, like a box of Cheerios. I felt that things were incredibly rushed and moments that deserved details were only touched upon. Of course, between comic books being a different form of written work than full-length graphic texts and other written works and how this is just the formation of a superhero series with an unfamiliar subject, there was a great deal of limitation. I still felt like we had a cardboard cast and rapid backdrop. I was also not fond of the way Daniel's character was forced when it came to his autistic qualities. His age within the piece was quite vague, but it seemed like he was old enough to benefit from a speech class that would have fixed his disjointed sentences. I do not know for sure given the fact that all people have different conditions and qualities within their conditions. Either which way, I did not think Daniel's conditions possessed the greatest accuracy. To me, Cillo Jr. had a better understanding of Catholicism, which is in fact his greater interest and the perspective that he knows far more clearly. While I am curious to see what is in store for this series and there were moments that caught my attention and convinced me to keep reading on, the characters and their backdrop did not impress me the most in any which way and I am not going to make a point to prioritize reading the upcoming comic books within this series.

    I like the artwork. The subject matter is thought-provoking and not a little disturbing, although it does sort of fit in with my views. I received this as a giveaway through Goodreads.

    Interesting read! This had a very compelling beginning that sucked me in. I also enjoyed the art. I'm normally more of a novel person. I like to sit down and read for hours and this comic only took me a handful of minutes but was enjoyable. I'm intrigued as to what comes next! Interesting read!

    I won this book through a giveaway on Goodreads. I think the best I can say about Blind Prophet is that I am interesting in reading what happens next. I would like to know how the story ends. It is an interesting story. I don't think there's much to recommend the book beyond the overarching story. I think the quality of the art is poor. It is vivid, but not skilled. Characters have the unfortunate habit of looking different from panel to panel. I also had trouble with the dialogue. Discussions bet I won this book through a giveaway on Goodreads.

Characters have the unfortunate habit of looking different from panel to panel. I also had trouble with the dialogue. Discussions between characters escalate improbably quickly. The early fight between the mother and father over how to handle the pregnancy escalated to diametrically opposed views on abortion so quickly, it was off-putting. There are a few places that speech balloons point to the wrong character. Some of the characters are unrealistically one dimensional. While I don't have the highest opinion of all politicians, it is difficult to imagine any as blatantly callous about citizens as suggested in the scene of the president in the situation room. While I like the overall story, I find the execution wanting.

    ~Disclaimer: I received this book for free ~ I really wanted to like this. And I did for a moment. The art itself is distinctive and has its own style. While I think the artist needs to improve on their skills I think keeping the style will help them brand themselves. However, as it stands the characters weren't consistently drawn and that got a tad distracting. The dialogue between the characters was unrealistic. People don't talk like that. Certainly not to strangers. The characters overall were ~Disclaimer: I received this book for free ~ I really wanted to like this. And I did for a moment.

Certainly not to strangers. The characters overall were flat. They were assigned a few character traits and that was all. All of the characters within are virtually static. And many characters were introduced in a burst and were not fleshed out. There was a very religious slant to the book (shocker I know....). However, it was much more conservative than I can really overlook. The messaging that the government is going to take away the guns of USA citizens was just too extreme. This is the message put out, but that isn't ever the intent of gun control groups. Having background checks, not selling armor piercing rounds and whatnot are elements of gun control activists that are commonly accepted. There was a lot of judgement being cast on the characters in the story were a bit extreme. It just ended up being having too many preachy moments to really get into the story.

    Blind Prophet is a fascinating take on the concept of spiritual warfare, in a divided nation, where both sides in their political positions are under demonic influence to resort to violent means, and few but a blind boy can see the true nature of the conflict. Though the perspective is decidedly Christian, Blind Prophet is a mind-bending read for people of any political or religious perspective, and, perhaps, not far-afield from some of the more divisive political conflicts in our troubled times Blind Prophet is a fascinating take on the concept of spiritual warfare, in a divided nation, where both sides in their political positions are under demonic influence to resort to violent means, and few but a blind boy can see the true nature of the conflict.

    I think some of these issues are very relevant to current events and some of these issues were kinda relevant to an actual recognized prophet baba vanga, i wonder if this graphic novel was inspired or influenced by this actual real person. In regards to the graphic novel I found it very well scripted and beautifully drawn. I found the story kinda scary and cool, like good and evil. I recommend it I am so intrigued by whats going to happen. RECOMMENDED.

I enjoyed the story but found the illustrations a little difficult to follow as they are not in standard comic form. The print fonts were difficult to read due to size and color. I received this as a review copy.

    I won a copy of this comic. Not really my kind of thing, but different. Daniel is brought into the world by his mother who opted not to have an abortion (although his father would prefer if she would have had one). Born blind and later diagnosed as autistic, Daniel finds that he can see things like demons.

    Interesting story, I find it interesting that the story runs along the line of a biblical prophet as I originally thought this was going to run towards the "superhero" lines. I enjoyed that the author chose a child as the recipient of this knowledge and I am interest in continuing the story!
