But, holy cow is it fun. I am slightly partial to goofy, fun things, and this comic is exactly what the doctor ordered. (Fun fact: I was going to link to some of my favorite weird things I’ve reviewed for FBC, but there were too many to be practical. Says the guy at the end of a three-line parenthetical aside) (ed. What is wrong with you?) The tone in Josh Henaman’s script whips back and forth between camp and deadly serious fantasy action. The result is a comic that does precisely what it is trying to do. And, the most important thing to the creators is obviously to make sure the reader is always enjoying the book.
I am in love with Andy Taylor’s art and Thomas Bonvillain’s colors and name. These guys perfectly captured the feeling of watching a cryptozoological specimen fighting giant moth-vampires on the surface of a bizarre and familiar Mars. This is a Frank Frazetta painting with Alfred E. Neuman poking out of the background.
This is easily one of the weirder comic books that I have gotten to read recently. This is precisely the reason that I love indie comics. Nobody is doing anything like this, and there isn’t any higher praise that I can heap on a comic book than that. This comic is fun.
