Comments: Madam Satan’s origin is gone over quickly. Madam Satan now rules Hell. Madam Satan visits Diamon the King of the West. She handles him quite efficiently.
Madam Satan though is given a lesson on who Lucifer really was. Madam Satan had become Ruler of Hell yet she was bored. So what better than to go back to torment Sabrina and others.
The art showing the demons in Hell is not scary at all. Even Madam Satan when she shows her true face is only mildly frightening. For a horror comic, it needed more horror in it. Having Madam Satan stand or sit around for most of the comic just listening to others or talking is not all that exciting. She herself finds ruling Hell boring. It is nice to be the Ruler but sometimes it turns out not to be what you expect.
Madam Satan is just a lady looking for thrills to entertain herself. It would be nice to see a lot more of what makes her, her. Maybe her childhood. Plus what exactly is she? A demon, she hybrid, a human, a witch?
The ending is anti-climatic as Madam Satan goes to school.
