I read a fantastic comic book the other day. It was even in digital format and I STILL loved it! Usually, I have a hard time reading digital. I’m just an old fashioned person, I like to have the book in hands, turn pages, etc.
However, this was truly a very unique and intriguing comic. First and foremost, is the clown, Tortura. The artistic rendering of this character is only enhanced and bolstered by the writing of his personality. The whole comic is just creepy but, Tortura is, by far, the creepiest thing in the comic.
It’s so hard to find an introductory issue of a comic book that really makes you want to read the series. This one happens to be very enticing. We meet a variety of characters, all with their own distinctive traits. And troubles. These characters are really what got my attention. The creator of this comic has really dug deep to come up with something incredibly different for readers. Andino pulls zero punches in the creation of this comic.
We start at a comedy club with a gal who is nervous as hell to go out on stage and do her set. Throughout her performance we meet our various characters and how they are woven together in this story.
While I like the artwork and it’s definitely very stylized to the artist himself, it’s the story that has peaked my interest so much. In my opinion, it’s very creative. The story is complex with a number of characters making appearances in the first issue but, that made for a very exciting read. There was some kind of action on practically every page.
I highly recommend this comic book. Especially for horror fans or someone looking for something new and different. Definitely worth the read!!!
