Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3 starts off with Shirtless, our bad-ass bear-fighting bro, tied to a chair, with his mouth stuffed full of toilet paper, trapped in the heart of this bad-bear-conspiracy. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is the perfect way to start a comic because I’ve never used the word bear so many times in one sentence, and absolutely had to here. That, and I was able to put together ‘bad-bear-conspiracy’ and somehow it makes perfect sense. Regardless of the fun I’m having while writing this review, Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3 is a good time and is definitely worth reading.
Having read the previous two issues of this series, it came as no surprise to me that this book was riddled with outlandish, laugh invoking scenes and situations.
Here, in Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3, readers learn more about Shirtless and his history, which includes the reason why he’s vowed to dedicate his life to fighting bears. Not that this information was necessary to enjoy this issue (or future issues for that matter) but it does add some depth to what otherwise would be a superficial romp through the forest.
Nil Vendrell’s artwork is brilliant. Scene after scene, I find myself smiling from what I see on the page. The script, written by Jody Leheup and Sebastian Girner, also brilliant. Thus, Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3 is brilliant and should absolutely be read.
