Review: Burning Rubber

Action Lab: Danger Zone have a one-shot comic out from their digital exclusives this week – Burning Rubber

BURNING RUBBER ONE-SHOT (Digital-First)

Being a getaway driver is supposed to be easy. But when you unknowingly steal drug money from the Russian mob — money guarded by an outlaw biker — troubles can’t be far away.

This hard-boiled one-shot tells its high-octane crime story from the perspectives of the getaway driver and the outlaw.

Writer(s): Hannu Kesola
Artist Name(s): Randy Valiente, Lala Narita, Jerome Gagnon
Cover Artist(s): Randy Valiente

25 pgs./ M / FC $2.99 (Digital-First)

This is an interesting one-shot. A story told in two parts. The first part sets up the robbery well. I like the way it is all built up. We learn about the car, the driver and the set-up all the way to the robbery. Then the downhill slope, the debt and a potential way out. It’s well done, and when the dust had settled I realised that I was only halfway through.

Then we get the second part.

This is the build up to the robbery from the other side. The group who had been robbed. It’s a shorter build up, but the story extends past the ending of the first part.
It’s well done, and links the story parts well. Giving us reasons and more meat to the bone of the characters.

A lot of the story is told on the move. It may be in a car or on a bike, but it fits so well with the theme of the story.

There is no wishing for an ongoing story, this is a proper done-in-one story and well told.

I like the art in this story, it’s dour enough and has the hints of movies like Payback. Well told and well shown.
