Punks: The Comic #4 Review


What happens when four people get together in a house and have totally different personalities? It’s not the real world its “Punks: The Comic”. Read on to find out more.

The official description from Image; which has nothing to do with the comic:

I’ve written a lot of solicitation copy in my life. I am always curious if people actually read it or not. If you’re reading this, email us at mail@punksthecomic.com and we’ll send you a free digital thing. From Eisner and Harvey nominees JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV (The Bunker, I, Vampire) and KODY CHAMBERLAIN (Sweets, The Ride) yada yada yada.

punks_04Okay, so I will say that they may have brought me back to the side of Punks! This series is hard to explain because it is very random but there are a couple of moments. First, we get some Meta moments that are pretty fun. It goes from our characters in the comic to the writers and artist, which is quite fun. Then, we see Skull having some dreams about Dog (Don’t worry it’s not what you’re thinking).  We get some monsters that are super interesting, Abe, also, gets a baby. This issue flows really well and actually was quite fun.

Joshua Hale Fialkov did some great stuff with this issue and had a lot of fun. My problem with the other issues was that it was so random without a story but this issue worked. I, also, like how he did the Meta parts because they were so clever. My only complaint is that I wish the stories would have been a little longer. I really go into some of them but then they ended. However, it was still pretty great.

Kody Chamberlain proves that he can illustrate anything because there are some obscure aliens that are really fun and illustrated quite well. There is also some fun stuff that you can make and they look pretty cool. Along with that, the panels are large and filled with great detail. He does a great job.

Punks #4 is a fun and odd comic but flows great.
