It’s tough being the Son of Satan, especially if you’re not exactly sympathetic to the Devil’s perspective. One benefit, though, is that you have a special knowledge and awareness of matters involving demons, so if you run into somebody with a wild story of a child turning into a bird or somesuch, you don’t dismiss it out of hand. That’s how a typical adventure for Daimon Hellstorm begins, and frequently it ends up with him battling some evil monster who, of course, is employed by his father.
None of the previous Hellstorm series have quite panned out for Marvel, but by launching this one in their “MAX” line, intended for adults, they can treat the gory subject matter with the kind of freedom it requires. Alexander Irvine writes it in a Hellblazer-esque style, while Russ Braun and Klaus Janson spatter it with blood.
