I know today that you can go into any comic book store and find non-superhero comics. It is pretty easy. However, when I read my first Ted McKeever comic back in the late 80’s, comic book stores were just taking off and 7-11’s everywhere still sold comic books. Ted McKeever’s unique style married to a cape-less story blew my mind.
Now, just over twenty years later, even with all the different comic books you can buy that do not have superheroes, I am still excited by a Ted McKeever book.
What that book is exactly is not an easy topic. Last time I mentioned the guy in the space suit–now I know he may be on Coney Island or on the moon. I also mentioned Santa Claus was in the story–she is a tatoo artist. There is still the police story in the background–now they are calling in the swat though.
And no, I do not know what the metaphor is…
Who cares. This is the second issue, three more to go.
Bottom Line: $3.50/$3.50
