I don’t know if it is because I have spent the past unknown number of hours researching and doing essay work on only four hours’ sleep, but I found myself really enjoying the stupid antics of the Great Lakes Avengers.
The plot? Well, the plot does not progress much in this issue, with this basically being one big chance to have a roundabout recruitment of a blue werewolf, bring back Mr Immortal and hipster jokes. However, it is clear that Gorman had fun writing this comic. Doorman and Mr Immortals interactions in a coffin provide some funny dialogue, and overall the comic just is fun, I mean the main villain looks like what would result if the devil took over Red Skull. The characters are slowly being developed and this first arc is going to be the typical “establishing the team” story and, whilst it is doing an okay job at this, it needs to pick up the pace a bit.
Robson’s art and Bonvillian’s colours brings Gormans zany atmosphere of the team to life, with facial expressions being done particularly well and Good Boy, our blue werewolf managing to look both vicious and adorable.
Buy.This book has its flaws and it is not for everyone but, at the end of the day, it’s a fun time with good art and a helping of corks with faces on.
