    This series is kind of meh. Too many characters that I cared nothing about. I read this as it came out and honestly I couldn't even tell you any of their names. His other series that's also currently being published, Sonata, is way better - though completely unrelated.

    Aah, that was bad. It just... I thought it was going to end a certain way before I started this but it didn't. The art style is a bit too cartoonish for my liking and the plot is strange and impossible to follow. Interesting concept at the beginning, but nothing came of it. 1/5 stars.

    If you are an avid reader of comic books for as long as I’ve been, you tend to develop an appreciation for art from all corners of the world, whether it’s paintings, or this case, tattoos on a human body. I myself would never get a tattoo, but I certainly can be impressed with the artistry. We have seen comic book creations that evoke tattooing, such as the Tattooed Man and even Shade, the Changing Man, so what does this new Image title, The Marked, bring to the table?

    Art was interesting, and the premise sounded cool...but the story was a hot mess. It did not flow well at all, and I didn't care about any of the characters. Definitely not for me!

    Well, this was a very pleasant surprise. Hine crafts a nice, and slightly different, urban fantasy here. Hines does re-use some old urban fantasy tropes. Such as, an ancient order of magic users hiding in plain sight. Said order also has an agreement to protect the world from threats from beyond Earth (The Laundry could likely use their help there-except already too late). But, what would these people do if one of their own, in a fit of anger and pique, decides to turn themselves into the U.S. mil Well, this was a very pleasant surprise.

But, what would these people do if one of their own, in a fit of anger and pique, decides to turn themselves into the U.S. military, and the Army wants to weaponize magic? And, they do this because they feel wronged by the order. With the large cast only Benis and Liza get any fleshing out beyond being two-dimensional characters. In addition, the concepts of magic being used in conjunction with tattoos is not necessarily new, now is the near Hellboyish use of dead Nazis as villains.

    DNF at 80pages. The story is such a mess, there is no solid flow, characters aren’t interesting and the art is kind of weird. The idea could have been cool but it was poorly executed.

    This book was recommended by a friend. It sounded up my street, witches whose tattoos are their spells. Unfortunately, this didn't land. I get that there's only so much world building/character development that can be done in 5 issues. This, however, was crazy rushed. I wonder if they thought the book was going to be cancelled and didn't want to leave readers hanging. It suffers from too many characters and not enough time spent to build attachment to them.

The big bad felt like one you would have in like Volume 3, not 1. The art I liked. The tattoos are very well detailed with each panel. The animation style and colouring really works for this alt girls who save the world. Won't be picking up the second volume.

    Selected this from Hoopla! app provided by my public library. I found the cover art intriguing. Great story with kind of a H. P. Lovecraft-Cthulu mythos. Art is decent. "The Marked" create strange magics through the body art they scribe on themselves, heroically defending the world from the "Dark Ones." Not really "M" more "T"-rated.

    3.5/5. I really like the basic concept and the artwork is great, but the twists in the story are predictable enough to see them coming. Also I did not really buy how easily one of the main protagonists turns to the bad side. Obviously, it has to happen for the story line to work, but it seemed forced and not really that well developed. Still a fun read and am looking forward to any follow ups!

    So...I really loved the concept and the art... but the actual plot was a bit meh. I felt like at the end we got thrown a bunch of random characters all at once and had a hard time keeping up with who was who there.

    A really cool concept backed up with interesting characters and art. I am really looking forward to the continuation of the story.
