Review

Sharkey, a rocket-powered-ice-cream-truck-driving bounty hunter, who owes quite a bit of money to quite a few people, is on the trail of his biggest score to date; it’s looking like his debts will be paid and all will be well until, of course, a green child shows up at his doorstep, looking to hitch a ride home.

From start to finish, Sharkey the Bounty Hunter #1 feels fresh and authentic, and it maintains a high-energy level that will continue to serve the series well, I am sure, when the proverbial shit hits the fan and the series takes a darker, or perhaps, more serious turn. Regardless of what may or will happen, what’s happening now is impressive.

Mark Millar’s newest character creation is certainly one of his most interesting; aside from being a purple-skinned bounty hunter that rides around through space in a rocket-powered ice cream truck, Sharkey has a rich past that’s filled with complexity and tribulation; and, he’s the kind of man that can keep the stories coming so long as the next round is on whoever is listening. Millar hints that there’s more to Sharkey than meets the eye and, in doing so, generates a great deal of interest and good reason to keep reading. 

Simone Bianchi’s artwork is highly detailed and just oozes Sci-fi goodness that engulfs readers and immerses them in an exciting new world that’s rich with authenticity and complexity. Thus far, Bianchi’s character work has been impressive as emotions and expressions are expertly rendered , but, I am confident that we’ve only been offered a taste of the beauty that will be found throughout this series. Visually, Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 is stunning.

I’m impressed, I’m excited, and I am eager to continue reading what promises to be an epic and unforgettable story; Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 is not to be missed.

The Bottom Line

Sharkey The Bounty Hunter immerses readers in an authentic world that’s teeming with sci-fi goodness and introduces a new character who I’d love to have a drink with, as long as we didn’t share a tab. Visually impressive and wonderfully written, Sharkey The Bounty Hunter #1 is a must-read.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
