Random Quickie: Celtic Shaman

image description

I’m going to assume that, at some point in Chris McQuaid’s Celtic Shaman, we’re going to learn that a portal to the Forgotten Realms must have opened in Canada. There’s mystical creatures everywhere. The hero, a rugged loner named Mannix, punches his way through several of these creatures as he tours the country’s backroads: a sea monster in New Brunswick, succubi in Quebec, and an ogre dressed up as a mall Santa in Mississauga, Ontario. Fortunately, Mannix is a man blessed with magic powers, fists of steel, and a sexy genie named Dru at his side. It’s a light-hearted and breezy comic where shamanism is grumblingly referred to as “spiritual pest control.”

About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. So should I read it?

    • Believe it or not, I had a whole review lined up for this comic, but then I ended chopping it down to this one little blurb because I changed my mind on it so many times. I think it’s somewhere between 3 to 4 stars personally. However, I jumped into it thinking it was going to be pretty atrocious, and I ended up liking it a lot. Again, my biases come into play here: I love stories that take place in the Canadian back country, and it was a hoot visiting those locations here. But that’s my own personal bias — I have a feeling other readers wouldn’t get the same thrill. 🙂

  2. That splash page picture was gold. Scantly clad ladies almost always work for me.
