Review by C.J. Bunce
I reviewed the first issue of Dynamite Comics new series Obey Me last month. It was actually labeled Issue #0, although I’m not sure why. Tomorrow Dynamite Comics releases Issue #1, a continuation of the series. I loved the first, zero issue. Check out my review here if you missed it. So does the next issue fare as well?
I was surprised the series is video game tie-in–it comes from the Obey Me PC/console game from Error 404 Game Studios. The story is playing out as a solid supernatural fantasy, with superb writing by Mario Mentasti, artwork by Ben Herrera, and eye-popping colors by Emmanuel Ordaz Torres. Each issue is a chapter you don’t want to end, following a badass super(natural)hero team of Vanessa and Monty, a girl and her dog. Of course, she isn’t the typical girl and he isn’t the typical dog. Vanessa is a bounty hunter tasked with hunting down souls contracted to the devil, and Monty is the hound assigned as her partner. Only in their next case readers will learn even more about Monty’s potential.
As with its first issue, look forward to some amped-up action and dialogue that will be loads of fun for mature readers. It’s quickly becoming a favorite from this year’s comic book releases.
