So I had never heard of this title before when I came across it in the bargain bin of the local comic book store. The cover stood out as something that really shouldn’t appeal to a male in his late-twenties. I was clearly not in the expected target market so thought ‘what the hell!’ and threw it on the pile of regular comics I buy. I figured it would be a good test of whether the story works on a wider audience and not just the target age group of 12 year olds.
Weirdly, out of all of the comics I bought that day, this was the one that I was most curious about as it just looked… odd. Having been surprised recently with some of my stranger purchases I decided to dig in and see what the crack was.
Does that make sense?
Yeah… I have no idea either. I’ve read a lot of obscure and random stuff over the years but this may just about sit upon the peak of randomness (well at least the peak of what my mind hasn’t erased from memory). This craziness of the story really does help elevate it above other comics, simply because it is memorable in its randomness. The art is just as wacky, at times seeming very childish, while at other points feeling much more mature and psychedelic. It’s a brilliant combination that left me wondering what was to come on each page. The style I guess is kind of akin to that of ‘Adventure Time’ but arguably far better.
So all in all I think I enjoyed what I read and am eager to read more. But I don’t know who I’d recommend it to, or what really happened. I say give it a shot as it could be your thing.
I really don’t know anymore.
