Who "MOO".. err.. knew?
WOW. That was surprisingly a... FUN read!!!
Skrull Kill Krew #2
Was not that impressed with issue 1 and only gave this a second try because of the intriguing cliffhanger reveal - hoping it would be expanded upon. It wasnt. But y'know what? The dialogue here was so fun that this definitely deserves a 3rd try. (Though the higher cover price is a Rip Off.) And the cannibal undertones is very offputting but was neatly sidestepped in this issue. Plus, the exposition on MORE on the Skrulls post-SI status is still wanting for me.
The art was good - however, 3D-man's legs were a bit stumpy. Also not crazy about the bring back these dead angle. And Riot's mingling into society came across as a little hard to believe. The 'super-bub' cameo was chronologically forced but marketing wise(but the variant cover is pushing it).
There is room/promise for improvement with the storyline but the wording, almost every page, was enteretaining fun from the wonderfully clever title to the LOL last thing Ryder says. And rodeo settings are always fun, right?
Who else liked this fun read?! What was your best line?
Resubmission : )
And this is an original 11" x 17" published page of art penciled and inked on Marvel Comics Bristol Board from another Skrull Kill Krew #2 for referencing:
