Punisher Presents: Barracuda #4: 🙂 Let it be known that I am a huge Garth Ennis fan. I even bought Seven Brothers, for god’s sake. And yes, I love Barracuda. It’s everything I could ever want from a Garth Ennis comic. Spot-dialogue, wonderful characters, grim humour, and plenty of good old-fashioned violence. And how can you not love Barracuda? Yes, he’s a murder a thousand times over, but he’s so damn cheerful. If Marvel wanted to put out a Barracuda monthly, I would be first in line to order every issue.

That just might be most blowjobish, least critical review of a comic, ever.

Hellboy: Darkness Calls #2 : 😐 I think I need to read this all at once. I wasn’t really drawn in by this issue. It sort of jumped around, from some sort of zombie swordsman chopping up zombie witches, to a bunches of ugly old witch ladies chatting up Hellboy, with creepy little midgets popping out of nowhere. It has some great Hellboy moments, but it’s not quite the absorbing read that earlier Hellboy volumes have been.

The good news is that Duncan Fegredo turns in some really nice, Mignolaesque art. It looks more like earlier Mignola, before the stripped down to a really minimalist style for the last couple of volumes. If we can’t have the man himself drawing the book, Fegredo is a great choice.
