Review by Scott Keys
Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #2 ended with Morgenstern “getting started” with giving Mr. Colvin powers, & Terminus escaping. What implications could come about from these circumstances?
Well, we start off with Clev and Saffron being “taken off the case” by Major Boudreau for their incompetence. Of course, Clev takes it in stride, being sarcastic as ever. While going over Morgenstern’s files and listening to people on the news give the pros and cons of ordinary people having super-powers, Clev decides to visit his family and gets to go on a field trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s for a birthday party. Meanwhile, Mr. Colvin is practicing with his new-found powers. After that, he goes to the store to pick up some stuff for his wife (I know how that is). Colvin notices 2 men fighting and decides to step in. Unfortunately, things get out of hand and tragedy ensues. I’m not spoiling this ending, because it really hit me, and I don’t want to take that away from other readers. My advice, READ THIS BOOK!
Bloodhound: Crowbar Medicine #3 upped the ante, and I foresee some major repercussions in Clev’s world. Jolley, Kirk, Riggs, Baumann are doing a fantastic job on this series, and I can’t imagine any other team making this book. Obviously it’s Jolley’s baby, but Kirk’s pencils, Riggs’ inks, and Baumann’s colors are integral to the look and feel of this title, setting the tone and mood (especially the colors in the last scene with the amazing pencils/inks…superb!). C’mon, guys. This book is only on issue 3. You can get the first 2 issues and catch up really quickly. You won’t regret your decision, I promise!
