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.

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

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!

A fallen priest as the main character in a story can most definitely mean only one thing when it comes to a manhwa... badass. With a title like Priest and an average score of 7. 68 from MAL readers DO NOT let this fool you!
This is a gritty, dark, deep and amazing read if you are looking for a fantasy, action, horror or supernatural comic that is nothing like a shounen manga that you may or may not be taking a break from.
It does not bore you with a story right from the start instead if tosses read more
