Here we go back again with another installment of Truthful Reviews! The purpose of these reviews is to shine a light on the thousands of indie creators, books and publishers that go aboye and beyond to produce quality work for our entertainment. Some people wonder why we would shine a spotlight on another indie publisher when we have our own books to push, the answer is simple; I truly believe that we're stronger together and that there's enough for everyone to eat. With that said, let's get to our review.
The book we're reviewing is Dragonfly and Dragonflyman #1. Published by Ahoy Comics, and up and coming comic book publisher that's making waves for all the good reasons. See what I did there? Ahoy Comics? Making waves? Anyhow, the publisher is quickly gaining a strong following and with reason.
The first thing I'll say about this book is that the format was a bit different than what we're used to, not good or bad; just different. There are two stories involving "the same main characters" but in different Universes. But that's not the only things that's different about this book, there's also three prose short stories as well as a "Spot The 12 Differences" on the last page; this book is worth the $3.99 price tag!
The story was written by Tom Peyer while the art was done by Peter Krause. One thing I'll say about Krause that I thoroughly enjoyed was that depending on what "World" the protagonists are; the art style changes. One story is done in a silver age style and the other story is done in a much darker style, amazing job by Peter Krause! The colors were done by Andy Troy. This book is reminiscent of Batman and Robin, the silver age era and the more modern era as well. Pretty solid book. I'll definitely be buying subsequent issues.
As always... keep it Truthful!
