Danger Club #6 Review

It’s been nearly two years since the last issue, so should you even bother with this indie title? Read on to find out.

The official description from Image:

As all of reality collapses, Kid Vigilante travels through the land of the dead in search of salvation.

Danger Club 6_Preview PageHave you ever closed a comic book and took a moment to bask in the awesomeness that just unfolded before your eyes? If so then you understand my reaction to this issue, as a striking creative team crafts something downright extraordinaire. I’m not going to spoil any of it but if you’ve been waiting for this outing trust me: it was worth it.

Landry Q. Walker delivers the goods, courtesy of a script that maintains a strong focus on our primary character. The last we saw Kid Vigilante he was shot in the head so needlessly to say what follows is an interesting experience. The written word is indeed geared up to unload a lot of info on a captive audience, as Danger Club expands its mythos. So far we’ve had a smart universe that played with genre tropes but here’s where we get to understand the behind the scenes. The text in this entry surprised me, as the scribe yields a to the point plot.

Considering the delay between issues, it was nice to see the talented Eric Jones in the illustrator’s chair. Each panels and page is crafted with both necessary and unnecessary details in mind. Which, in hindsight, might turn into a sensory overload of sorts but somehow the pencil strokes converge in a way that fits the saga at hand. Add in the dynamic colors by Michael “Rusty” Drake and the look of this book is engaging.

Danger Club #6 represents, for me, a surprising return for a title that had already garnered my attention and praise. If this one happened to slip under your radar back in 2013 then now’s the right time to go hunting for those back issues! Just trust me: this because this is absolutely one ride every fanboy and fangirl needs as this comic comes highly recommended.
