What have I done to you? :cry:


Oh, just say your LCS didnt have it. As usual.

Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker #1

Huh. I was really excited about this, especially after looking through it and seeing sex and nudity. That's always fun to have in a comic. Still the story has to work as well and I'm on the fence about that.

The main character seems to be the love child of Jack Burton and Duke Nukem. Throw in some Garth Ennis story concepts and that's what I got out of the first issue. It was enjoyable; very enjoyable, but I didn't get the feeling of anything new here either. Take a bunch of ingrediants from other books and movies and mesh it together. Does it work? Yes. Will I get this in trade? Yes. Is this the most orginal thing I've read lately? No.

Story: 7
Art: 10
My Score: 8.25

So far most people have liked this more than I did, but have some of the same reservations.

My #1 problem: I didn't laugh.

Was it supposed to be funny?

I don't think there's any question that Butcher Baker believes itself to be a shockingly hilarious work of pop fiction.

Nah my issue gets here on monday. And I don't know if it's supposed to be funny. Casey has a strange sense of humor but part of it is making people not laugh.

The comparisons of others to The Comedian, Duke Nukem, and Casanova were all right-on. The problem is, it has the soul of none of those. Not even Duke Nukem.
