It’s a relatively sleepy week for readers. What few events that are currently happening, don’t have any direct issues out this week. Cheer up though, Ben Reilly is coming back, Comicpalooza is just around the corner and GoGames360 is almost here!!

Yes, DC will be raising prices on a few titles (full write up coming) but they will be adding digital codes in those books. So I don’t expect a drop in sales. Marvel has been doing just that for years to great success.

I seem to be rambling…………..

Let’s go RAID THE RACKS!!!

Red Dog #1 left us with quite the cliffhanger, and #2 definitely puts a nice finish on that. True to 451Media style, Red Dog #2 will pull the floor from beneath your feet.

After the end of its first issue, I wasn’t sure what to expect in issue two. I thought the story might spiral into all sorts of new dangers, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Issue #2 gave me a wholesome, lighthearted story that elicited more than a few chuckles and even an “awe” from me. I don’t normally go for the “warm and fuzzy” books. Usually the “Slice of Americana” seems manufactured and disingenuous however, such is not the case here. The sheer amount of pure, kindhearted fun could only come from sincere writers who truly respect a “Norman Rockwell” society, rather than the usual scenario of just trying to profit off one.

The art is clean and crisp with that awesome “rust” coloring that helps keep the danger in the forefront of your mind. The inking is defined without being overbearing, and the emotion portrayed by each characters’ body language and facial expression should be the bench mark that the rest of the comic book industry is compared with. Red Dog #2 reminds us how incredibly entertaining and exhilaration a comic book can really be.

Written by Hollywood action king, Rob Cohen and adapted by the incredibly talented Andi Ewington, Red Dog is a twisting turning tale of adventure and mystery. Reminiscent of classic Americana such as Lassie, the story has a wholesome quality that so many other writers attempt to emulate, but comes as natural as breathing for the 451Media crew. The wholesome goodness is homogenized with overtones of peril. Rob Cohen and Andi Ewington portray the perfect balance of suspense and old fashioned fun. Danger and death seem to be writhing inches away from the reader at all times. Even in an upbeat and overall lighthearted issue such as this, it is never out of mind that doom is kept at bay by little more than a piece of glass.

A perfect 5 out of 5 capes!!!
Be sure to grab it January 11th, 2017!!! And look for it on next week’s What’s Out Wednesday!!!
