Soul Kiss #3

Written by Steven T. Seagle
Art by Marco Cinello

This continues to be a fun title. I like the way Seagle is playing with the moral ramifications of Lili's situation (having to kill ten men in ten days in order to secure the soul of her boyfriend) and at the same time commenting on the types of people you would think you would want to kill in such a situation ("attitudey, pansexual sales clerk" being one).

The title moves quickly, and the art seems to be changing slightly as the book progresses. The second last page, as Lili talks to a homeless person, looks like it could have been drawn (or at least laid out) by Will Eisner (perhaps an intentional homage to "A Contract With God"?).
