When is the CW going to turn this into a TV Show? Seriously. It’s right up their alley and it’ would rock out loud.
Allow me to make my case:
#1: It’s visually interesting. Dan Mora draws a pretty panel.
#2: Almost the entire cast is female. And each one brings something different to the table.
#3: You’ve got a supernatural thief name Lucifer. That alone should merit a pilot episode.
#4: It’s funny. Now I understand humor is subjective, and I’m normally not for comic books trying to be funny, because often they come off as trying to be funny. But Michael Alan Nelson delivered some solid laughs because they felt natural and real. When Intern says to Lucifer, “I am hating you as hard as I can right now.” Funny, and very believable.
#5: It’s just plain good. And fun. And I like it. That should be reason enough, right?
Michael Alan Nelson continues to keep the pace on with this issue. I feel like he hit the ground running at issue #1 and hasn’t let up since. With very few respites to slow things down, the hits just keep on coming. Man I love it when a comic comes out of the box firing. I tell ya, that Yves isn’t subtle when it comes to sending messages. And color me weird, but I think Cymbaline might be my favorite character. I don’t know if I should be rooting for her, but I find myself on her side. She’s just visually interesting, being swathed from head to toe in white with just her eyes showing. And I absolutely love the way she speaks through a thrall. I just dig that so hard. Plus, there’s that floaty, white, ethereal scarfy things around her all the time.
Dan Mora continues to bring it visually with another solid issue. I especially liked the panels where Yves was chasing Lucifer through the paintings. That’s some solidly cool visuals right there sir.
I’m liking this book more and more. Keep up the good work fellas! (Do people still say “fellas”? I feel like they do. )
