What made me pick this book up: 
I saw it for auto approved on Netgalley and it looked interesting.

What did I like about the cover:
I love the artwork, the colors are awesome and I love the sisters sitting upside down each other. Does that make sense? 

What made me read this book: 
I love horror/dark/demon graphic novels.

Would I read the rest of the series/more from this author?
Yes absolutely! I'm super bummed this is just now about to come out, because I need more of it!

The artwork is really adorable actually. That's something I really liked about this book. It's dark and creepy and demon-y but the artwork is cutesy. But still dark. 

The characters are definitely something that adds to this book. Kate and Cate are both amazing. They both have their own strong personalities. But Cate is definitely my favorite. She cracked me up the whole book I swear. 

This book starts out kinda meh, but quickly turns into HOLY CRAP WHAT IS HAPPENING!? And then it doesn't stop. I read this in about an hour and I didn't want to stop reading it. I swear I was reading this on my phone completely curled up ignoring the world. My husband kept laughing at me because I kept laughing. Not just a little laughing. Snort laughing. So it was fast paced, quick read, and also completely had me enthralled.

I didn't quite get what the story was going to be at the beginning. I loved reading about them casting out demons and saving people from hell, but I figured there had to be more to this than that. It took until the last issue of the volume before it became clear. And it's a good one I think. I can't wait to read more.

So great! Lots of dark humor!
