Synopsis

In the frontier of the American West, a veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity. Servants of the fallen archangel Temozarela are paving the way for their dark lord's resurrection. One man stands in the way of the apocalypse: Ivan Isaacs, a fallen priest who sold his soul to the devil Belial for the power to fight evil. Armed with a wicked blade and silver bullets, Ivan will give the heretics a baptism of blood in his pilgrimage for humanity's redemption.

Short review: great unique art. Definitely one of the better Korean manhwa I've read by far. But I've never liked Korean comics to begin with.

In terms of story: don't expect anything more than guns, gore and seemingly profound but very skippable biblical gibberish interludes. There's alot of intense stuff going on, but at the end I feel like I just read 16 volumes of flashbacks and an introduction to a story that would never actually kick off. And by the time an actual storyline seems to be set up and about to pay off the publication stops. That said, there's no shortage on action. But read more

Preliminary
The manwha Priest is based around Father Isaacs a once faithful priest who turned his back on God after a God turned his back on him. The storyline, based in the west with a slice of the occult added to it to give it that extra bit of greatness is good, confusing at times, but as events unfold and history is revealed the story be comes intriguing and leaves you wanting more after each volume. Priest itself brings up religious questions that may seem blasphemous and dark, but to be fair, without it the manwha wouldn't be as good.

The art and characters are good, read more

Preliminary
After getting back into anime, manga and comics in general a few years back, Priest was one of the first titles I picked up. Even though this is a Manwha title, don't let this put you off, as we are lucky to have this translated and released in the west.

It is easy to dismiss Priest as a generic action title, with a cool gun slinging anti hero battling the undead. I nearly did. However the story goes much deeper after the volume 3 where we start to see the back story to why things are so screwed up in the old west!
