Spaceman #4 (Bingogo Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:02 am

It’s been a fair while since #3, so it took me about half of this issue to get used to the dialogue of this book again. I think that if I was reading this story all in one go this problem would disappear, because you’re immersed in the world and the argot, but in monthly instalments, it’s a little jarring. But still, this is very good, atmospheric stuff. Orson is a very appealing protagonist, and the central plot of the kidnapped child-star is a strong one and Azzarello takes full opportunity to poke fun at reality TV and other celebrity nonsense. This is contrasted with Orson’s flashbacks to his time on Mars, which although they’re moving a bit too slowly for my liking, are very interesting. I wonder if the discovery of gold on Mars is connected to the present-day story? I’m sure if it is it’s in a very complicated noir-ish way, the troubles of Orson coming out of the past. Risso’s art is of course fantastic, but then you know that.
