Review: Dying Is Easy #1

Dying Is Easy is the latest new series from IDW Publishing – out now in print and digitally, check out my thoughts below!

The debut of an all-new creation by Joe Hill (Locke & Key) and Martin Simmonds (Punks Not Dead)! Meet Syd “Sh*t-Talk” Homes, a disgraced ex-cop turned bitter stand-up comic turned… possible felon?!

In part 1 of Dying is Easy, Carl Dixon is on the verge of comedy superstardom and he got there the dirty way: by stealing jokes. He’s got a killer act, an ugly past, and more enemies than punch-lines. So when someone asks Syd Homes how much it would cost to have Dixon killed, Syd isn’t surprised in the slightest. He’s already got a figure in mind…

Crime and comedy! There are some good gags here, but the real story is the down-and-outs at the comedy club. Excellently written, with some really good points made. I like the references in this (although some may be a bit dated) and the build up to the end is well done. This crime story (and it is a crime story) builds up well to the end – we get the comedians and the one on the way to the top. The ex-cop is interesting, and I like the way he is set up in this story.
The art and colours are brilliant, they really set the tone for the story and work out well.
This is going to be an interesting story – especially with that ending!
