Hahn, Richard – Lumakick #2
Just in case anybody thought the first book was a fluke somehow, this second issue proves otherwise. The best thing about Richard is that, two issues in, it’s already almost impossible to compare him to anybody else. Sure, there are brief moments when the art looks like that one guy, or a phrase will sound like that other guy, but they were so brief and so tiny that I have to wonder now if I was just trying to find somebody, anybody, to compare him to for the sake of the review. Can’t be done, I’m afraid. In here you have longing, love, wandering, representations and then, like last time, the comic relief of Clemenza and Tessio. They were all clumped together this time instead of being spread out after each story in the last book, which I think frankly was a better setup. One man’s opinion, that’s all that is. If you somehow missed #1, even with everybody talking about it, well, you have no excuses this time. If you ever sit by yourself just to think, or wonder about the universe and everything in it, read this comic. The price is a bit hefty at $5.95, but it’s also a pretty hefty book, and you won’t spend that money on a better comic this year. Contact info is up there!
