Methinks the lad's a wee bit cock-shy.

What I like best about Butcher Baker #1 is the sort of institutionalized pop culture motif in its world. It isn't Dick Cheney who (along with a smug Jay Leno) recruits our hero (an aggressively typed exemplar of masculinity) for a mission, it's the popular image of him. That mission, of course, being one of near contextless violence, the most crowd-pleasing kind of violence. There is an interesting meditative quality to a super-buff, mustachioed superhero pondering how life got to the point where doing the right thing means looking at the small picture (while he wears an American flag banana hammock). The plot, such that it is, is definitely secondary to the world-building, and the abrupt ending certainly makes that apparent.

There aren't many artists who could have illustrated this story effectively, but Mike Huddleston is one of them. His energy is manic and sends a constant stream of information into the reader's brain. It's great stuff, and it works for whatever it is Joe Casey is getting out of his system here.

8/10.

When to the comic store yesterday Butcher was in my pull. I asked the LCS manger what it was. He described it as "The book you want" And I agree. It was awesome. The art was incredible, Joe Casey is a solid writer but I've never when ape over his work. This on the other hand. Added to the pull list I'd buy the book for the art work alone, damn good book.

I just don't want to get heckled for having a comic with a bright crotch on the cover. "Why are you reading a gay comic, GLX?"

Wow, this from the kid who started the Man Watching thread, eh?

Show them the part where he's banging all those chicks, then. Point at that and say, "does that look gay, Mom?"

How is this a "gay comic"? :?

I keep my posting a secret from the fam.

The quotes signify that they'd call it a gay comic. They have homophobic tendencies. :smt102

So putting a dude's groin front and center on the cover makes it a "gay comic", and all the comics covers with a giant pair o' boobs occupying the same real estate, that makes them what, "straight comics"? Or "lesbian comics" :?

I'm just going with what might be said. My mom thinks Alex Ross is (literally) gay because of his work, so who knows. :smt102

I understand. My father thought the same thing about Elton John after he went to one of his concerts.

Homophobia just runs rampart through our parents' generation. :smt011
