Outcast, Vol. 1: A Darkness Surrounds Him by Robert KirkmanMysterious evil stranger to exorcist priest after being asked his name:
“You know me by many names for I am Legion, but you can call me Ray, or you can call me J, or you can call me Johnny, or you can call me Sonny, or you can call me Junie, or you can call me Junior; now you can call me Ray J, or you can call me RJ, or you can call me RJJ, or you can call me RJJ Jr but you doesnt hasta call me Johnson!.”
How about if I just call you,
Any graphic novel that can make this guy’s appearance rudimentary and formulaic won’t get me to pick up the next volume.
What else is wrong with this book?
Well for starters the small town this takes place in has to be the center of the universe for demonic possessions. Hey, this collection averages just about one per issue, and they’re all pretty much the same thing: a sprinkling of holy water, some words by the priest, some crazy grinning, some harsh language some fisticuffs, and Kyle (the Outcast) sort of sucks out the spirit like Luigi with his vacuum in the video game, Luigi’s Mansion.
Kyle’s the Outcast. Yes, he is. And…?
The possessive demons know it but what the hell (pun very much intended) does this mean? How many more times are we going to hear this introduction until this plot actually moves forward? A sophisticated comic book reader like myself (Shaddup! Stop laughing!) needs some sort of plot advancement to get past a growing sense of story line inertia.
Apologies to my buddy Kelly for teaming up for such crappy graphic novel. Read her review, it’s a thousand times better than the book.

Cinemax had initially showed strong belief in the series, handing out a second season pickup before it even premiered. But the drama was plagued by a shift in strategy at the network.

Based on the comic from Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, the drama follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of the Reverend Anderson, a preacher who has personal demons of his own, Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost.
By Nellie Andreeva. The news comes as a little surprise. Outcast had been on the back burner at Cinemax , with its second season finally airing this summer, two and a half years after it was ordered and about two years after it was produced. The options on the cast have long lapsed, and everyone had moved on. A few months after Cinemax renewed Outcast for Season 2 in March ahead of its series premiere, the network overhauled its programming strategy, pulling away from expensive, dark hometown series like Outcas t in favor of fun, high-octane, action, pulpy dramas done in a cost-effective way primarily as international co-productions.
Is the Outcast TV show cancelled or renewed for a third season on Cinemax? The long delay in airing season two would seem to indicate that this show isn't a priority for Cinemax. I suspect the show is over. Outcast Season 2 Viewer Votes .
