Reed, M.K. – Catfight Part One
Catfight Part One
I swear I didn’t crumple that cover up, although you wouldn’t know by looking at it. It looks like MK has a varied array of comics available, which is always a good thing in my book. This one is about high school dynamics, basically, and about a female friend of the gang starting to date, which causes instant panic in the rest of the gang as they’re afraid of losing her. As that does happen most times that dating begins, it’s a legitimate fear. What you need in a book like this is an interesting, diverse cast of characters, and she pulls that off beautifully. I never had any trouble telling these people apart, and you’d be surprised how many titles have trouble with that. The backgrounds are a bit lazy (or nonexistent) in places, but the rest of the story was engaging enough that it was never a big deal. Personally, I can’t wait to see the next issue so I can find out how that lasagna turned out. This is, oh, let’s say $4, give or take a dollar either way. Check out her website! Update (3/2/04): remember the only real problem I had with the book, the lack of backgrounds? Well, MK has put out a revised edition with all kinds of backgrounds. I officially have no complaints!
