Greek Street #4
This was a setup issue. It covered bits and pieces of the last one and set up the next, but nothing really happens. Eddie is not killed, as if anyone really believed that was going to happen, and Cassandra is still spouting nonsense. The women who I think might be the Fates do nothing of note and Deadelus has a monster hidden away in a labyrinth, which I think is an allegory and foreshadowing to future events. Now with Eddie and Cassandra almost under the same roof, though, something might actually happen.
Let’s hope it’s not more Eddie screwing old ladies. Let’s hope plot.
It’s such a weird mix of Japanese and Western storytelling and it doesn’t really fit. It’s actually like a guy from here trying to tell an anime, but missing some of the finesse of it. Instead, they have Hellsing demon fighting and the random school girl and the random demon in school scene that lasts only a single scene and lack of character motivation because they want demon fights. Still, they are very pretty demon fights.
Sweet Tooth #2
Gus is so freaking adorable. A nine or ten year old half deer boy that people are after because they think the half kids might be a cure to a disease that he’s too sheltered to know about. I’m loving this story, but I have to wonder if everyone who seeks to help him is going to only survive for one issue. His dad dies in the first, the big man has quite possibly died in issue 2. Someone’s gotta live.
And finally, the Comic Minute.
