PTF Reviews Super Suckers 2.3
Well, how was everyone’s Memorial Day? Mine involved having to take my aunt to the hospital because she felt dizzy. Fair enough. But then after an eight hour wait, I check on her to find I could have been out much sooner…but she didn’t want to give a urine sample. And personally, I don’t like being in a den of disease and death longer than I have to. So you can imagine I was little miffed. Very angry because I caught a bug in that horrid place.
So let’s take all my anger out on Super Suckers Mirror, Mirror part three.
Kelly arrested, Jess a druggie, Sy has a weak bladder, fight, pretend girlfriends, and just the occasional insane moment or two awaits us!
Trevor. Fine. I was wrong. It happens. Often. Yeah, I like him now that he’s had more comic time and he’s developed. I like that he’s a dumb oaf with dumb luck who got what he wanted. Plus his hidden side. So yeah, he’s going to be a fun addition to the cast.
Sheer insanity: God help me, but I love when there’s so much insanity going on with so many characters. This issue made me think of It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad World. Just everyone running around, fighting, arguing, talking and all going in the same direction. It was all really enjoyable. Every character’s personality’s shined and I can take any word balloon and you probably guess who said what, so I really appreciate that. Every character gets a moment or joke that you laugh at. And that only makes this my favorite part of this story. And the expressions and body language of all the characters was great. Wonderful work by Darin and Shultz. And let’s not forget co-host Robin Taylor.
Coloring and Inking: Just the usual superb job. The best showcase for both is when Kelly gets mad and goes ballistic. The red hue surrounding her head was a really nice touch. And the lettering was also great.
Sitcommerical: Only one and it’s a repeat.
Miscoloring. Jess’s night gown was green in one panel. So a rare mistake by Glenn Whitmore. But to be fair, Barry Grossman miscolored the TMNTs bandanas on occasion, so no shame in it.
Yeah, there's not much wrong with this issue.
What I learned from what I read.
Don’t make Kelly mad.
- If you’re going to go after vampires, learn to fight.
- Funny how some people are related, huh?
- Jess’s dad has a week bladder.
- No one believes a deranged looking individual screaming at the top of her lungs.
- When someone says “Freak-a-zoid” I get the old cartoon theme in my head for hours—“freakzoid, chimpanzee!” Cripes, not again…!!
- Trevor and cosmetology go together like lotion and hands.
- Adam’s hobbit hat will always be stupid that I will never be wrong about.
- If you don’t understand someone or they seem different…they’re on drugs.
- Snoopy walked into some weird going-ons!
This is one of my favorite issues I’ve read of Super Suckers. Everything clicked. It was fun face paced conclusion. Everything was wrapped up in a nice bow, great work all around. It’s an easy A+. You should really pick this comic up as it’s a steal at 1.99 for the quality you get.
So until next time. Same time, Same BAT CHANNEL.
