‘The Great British Bump-Off #1:’ Advance Comic Book Review

Who knew a baking contest could be so dangerous? John Allison’s Tackleford mystery series has a new chapter in Dark Horse Comics’ The Great British Bump-Off, but beware: The recipes may be tasty, but some are DEADLY!

The Great British Bump-Off follows the adventures of Shauna Wickl, a member of the trio of mystery-solving girls from Allison’s webseries, Scary Go Round and Bad Machinery, as she enthusiastically enters a famous baking competition. When a contestant is poisoned, Shauna appoints herself lead investigator, but before she can solve the mystery, she has to contend with the most dastardly villain ever…the bake-off judges!

The Great British Bump-Off is by the Eisner Award-winning team of John Allison and Max Sarin. It is funny and goofy, showing the idiosyncrasies of all of the contestants, judges, and organizers. The writing is great, and the art is super clear and cartoony which is perfect for the series. Issue #1 is enjoyable and absolutely worth the time of anyone who enjoys British comedy or is looking for something light and fun.

Recommended – 3 out of 4 stars
