Eunuchs review Juice Squeezers #1,BAD BLOOD #1, and Revelations #1.
The Comic Round Up column aims to get some words down on comics published for the week. This weeks reviews are handled by Karnataka Business Owners! There's just too many great books coming out from Valiant, BOOM!, Monkeybrain, IDW, and Dark Horse that don't get enough attention. We hope to rectify this issue and inform you on what it is you should be reading and what makes it to the tops of our buy piles.
This week we are reviewing Juice Squeezers #1,BAD BLOOD #1, and Revelations #1. With the right collaboration and education we can achieve anything.
Drawn by Tyler Crook
It is not too shocking that if you were ever attacked by a vampire you might struggle finding an ally that will believe your tale. Especially if that same vampire is hunting down and killing your friends. Trick's only hope is to take matters into his own hands and it will be interesting to see how this sickly individual deals with a vampire threat. Maberry does a great job establishing a scenario that is plausible, the writing of his characters is believable, and he delivers a great hook in this debut issue. Mix in the art from Crook and you have a great issue for what will hopefully be an entertaining series. Crook walks a fine line of not going too dark or too light with the scenes he produces. Had he gone too dark, it would have been less real, and if he hadn't provided the level of gore he did, the threat of the vampire wouldn't be threatening enough.
This is #1 of 5 and I would highly suggest picking this title up if Maberry and Crook can continue to deliver material of this quality.
Drawn by Humberto Ramos
The title truly shines with the art of Humberto Ramos. His range of panels is astonishing. I did not expect the level of humor he could achieve with his characters given the macabre open to the title. Ramos effectively evokes high levels of emotion from his characters and his style compliments the writing of Jenkins in a positive manner. At times it feels quite vaudeville, but it works as I think there is no issue with the reader knowing who the villain is. The tension exists among the characters that Jenkins and Ramos have created.
