5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous comic, 10 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Deadbeats (Paperback)
I got this comic at the Thought Bubble festival, basically it is a super-great comic. Artistically, there's some great things by INJ Culbard that continue to show off his excellent talent for capturing the spirit of adventure and the strange, with some cool touches that set it apart from some of his previous horror-type comics (At The Mountains of Madness, Charles Dexter Ward etc) including some surprisingly colourful touches that help add to the jazz age sensibility.

Writing-wise you might have seen Chris Lackey and Chad Fifer's previous attempts separately in the second Lovecraft Anthology comic, but in my opinion this is a lot better. You definitely get a sense of the characters quite quickly, and nothing really feels out of place. It also feels a lot like an old, low budget horror movie (in a good way!) which is maybe not surprising since it was originally conceived as a movie script, and a lot of that charm shows up on the page.

One down-side though is that perhaps because of that old horror movie/pulp adventure feel, things can sometimes seem a little light (in the lacking depth way) and there are a few parts that I wish had been delved into a little deeper (such as the mobsters' journey) but ultimately this is a story about Lester and his friends (and sticks extremely closely to their perspective) and it carries that off exceptionally well, and with a tremendous sense of fun.
