Reviews: Doppelganger & Go West

Doppelganger #2 & Go West #1

Some thoughts on two of this weeks digital comics from Alterna Comics

Doppelganger #2

Dennis decides he must fight to reclaim his life. He turns to his best friend, Riccardo, to help develop a plan to kill his Doppelgänger. The two conjure up a solid strategy, but it will force Dennis to be brave, confrontational, and forceful… three characteristics he’s never possessed.

Dennis is making decisions, but they are not working out how he would like them too. Meanwhile, his Doppelganger is taking over his life and making it better!
This issue flowed a lot better than the original, expanding the cast and bringing in some new characters too. I like the thoughts about the sidekick and the way the build up was all set up. There is an excellent cliffhanger in place for the next issue too! Dennis’s character seems to have built up well, and some of that is from his situation, and some is from his doppelganger who is taking over.
The artwork is very good – it gives me a “Fight Club” feel – with the style and the colours.

I in on this series now, and am looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!

Go West #1

Now seeking a life of peace, ‘Slade the Blade’ used to be one of the deadliest men in the New West. But when his family is brutally murdered, Slade embarks on one of the grimmest, grittiest, and goriest tales of revenge that the world has ever seen.

Rocking up in the ‘new’ wild west, this looks to be an old-fashioned story of vengeance. Slade’s family are dead – killed by a gang on the orders of some ‘creep’. This issue begins well, building up to a crescendo of violence which is what is expected!.

I really enjoyed the build to it all, with Slade thinking of his past lives and how he cannot escape what he is. Then we get the beginning of this bloody road to revenge in the final pages – well crafted and told.

I love the artwork and the colouring, there are some real ‘old west’ scenes here, with some excellent colour and panel transition decisions.

This is only a 3-parter, so I expect things to escalate quickly!
