Two new series from IDW Publishing and Angry Birds shenanigans
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency #1 introduces us to a new type of detective – a holistic detective! It’s quite a manic start with and arrival, a pick up and introductions all round. There’s a lot going on in this issue – not only do we get a good introduction to Dirk Gently, but also his potential base of operations, a supporting cast and his first case! I really enjoyed the build up to the final page, we all had a good idea it was coming, but the reveal was excellent! The art is perfect for this fast paced, fun read!
IDW are serialising this comic originally from Thrillbent – Insufferable #1 sets its stall out early with the two heroes being set up in the way they do their work! What follows is the fallout from that, and how each one deals with it in their own way. One goes home, showing battle scars and alone, the other isn’t alone, but has scars of his own – venting them in his own way – online, and anonymous! This is a different type of superhero story, which shows some of the personal relationships and their breakdown. Check this out!
Two stories this issue in Angry Birds #11 – the first one is the mainly about the pigs – with the Angry Birds being the wind-up artists. The pigs, unhappy with their lot, find a way to improve their ways, needless to say things escalate to extreme levels! It all builds up in a fun way, but possible could have been concluded earlier. The second story features the birds wishing to skive off their guard duty – with three of them deciding to go to a fair. The pigs arrive and there’s nearly an opportunity for the pigs to get the eggs, but….. 🙂
