Hello there fellow comic book readers, I have another treat for all of you guys, Danger Club #1, written by Landry Q. Walker, with art by Eric Jones, and publish by the sizzling hot Image Comics. Both are two unknown talents to me, but like I’ve been saying in recent reviews, Image Comics have been sizzling hot in recent years, with pretty much every comic selling out and being an amazing read.
And this brand new series is no less the high quality, and interesting concept that I have come to expect and enjoy from Image Comics. We have a premise that all the adult superhero being sent into outer space to combat a some mysterious evil, and then mysteriously disappear/defeated, leaving only the kids heroes to watch over the world. And the issue starts with what has happen to kids because of it, we have a powerful super kid, Apollo becoming a megalomaniac and taking charge of what seems to be the remaining superheroes. He has become arrogant, because now he is the most powerful superhero among the remain kid heroes. So his one time allies and friends are out to stop him and face the true threat that had defeated the adults.
I have never read anything by Landry Walker before, but I can say that there is a lot of potential there, in the short amount of pages Landry has created a pretty emotionally compelling story, that provides a gripping premise and interesting characters. Landry has wonderfully created a clear story with a purpose and clear direction, but still giving us a taste of mystery, making the first issue a great eye catcher. I am drawn into the story of these superhero kids, and eager to read more future issues.
While Landry create an interesting story, it is Eric Jones beautiful art that really sells the story, making Landry’s script that much more compelling. Eric renders beautifully graphic and detail characters and backgrounds, the fight scene between Kid Vigilante and Apollo is a spectacular scene, that is comparable to the amazingly graphic scenes of The Strange Talent of Luther Strode.
I’m absolutely loving Danger Club with it’s great concept and beautifully graphic artwork, and I’m looking forward to future issues. Danger Club #1 is a “Definite Buy,” so but sure to gave yourself a copy soon, especially it has a low print run and most retails won’t be ordering much, even though Image Comics has been red hot as of late.
Here are a few pages from Danger Club #1, be sure to pick up your own copy which is in stores now, and like always Have Fun Reading!
