This is another original comic from Crude Comics Inc. This one is completely different than Zombiesluts. In this story, we have something much more dark and mysterious.
It’s a vigilante story of sorts. A special man with a unique gift who seemingly hunts down demonic forces he is “drawn” to with his trusty hammer in hand, ready to pound justice into whomever he sees fit.
The writing is brilliantly done to keep you interested and focused on what is happening. However, it’s not so easily spelled out as to what all is going on. That being the case, when you are done reading this first book you are very curious and immediately wanting the second book. There’s a healthy level of dark sarcasm and I think it works really well for the character. We don’t know his name. We don’t know what his problem is with these people he kills. But we do know he’s some sort of badass with a hammer wielding his own justice at every turn.
The artwork is also very unique. I am not trained in art by any means so I can’t tell you a style name or anything like that but, I will say it is awesome. I love the bold black and white. It’s almost like sketch work in some areas too. Plus, the use of color is for emphasis and impact, like showing only the blood on a pair of hands in color, leaving the hands and the rest of the image in black and white. It really does have some impact and definitely pulls the eye to the artwork on each page.
Once again, these guys have mastered the idea of unusual layout and use it to their advantage every time. I still like the fact that every page doesn’t look like every other page. It not only makes the appearance interesting to the eye but, it also adds interest to the story flow. As in Zombiesluts, some pages have multiple panels and some are full page illustrations, some have both. I think it’s a great way to showcase the creators of the comic book and their talents.
I truly enjoyed this issue and its dark web of mystery and murder that it has begun to weave. I anxiously await the next book, Book 2.
