Zeek the Martian Geek #7 by Brian Cattapan
Itâ€™s been a long time since Iâ€™ve seen a Cattapan comic, so I was starting to wonder. It looks like he was just putting a lot of energy into making a really fun comic, so all is forgiven here. This issue is basically about Zeek and Nurdy trying to learn more about humans, with Nurdy being transformed into a girl so she can read books (not sure why either) and Zeek just going to Earth as his usual self. Occasional hilarity does ensue. There are also plenty of one page strips to break up the action, keeping everything moving right along. Frankly, I think Brian has come a long way. Even with some of the earlier works when everything wasnâ€™t quite coming together you could see his heart was in the right place, and now itâ€™s all clicking. The comedic timing, the art (in hindsight Iâ€™m glad he stuck with the charcoal style), he does good work. Granted, if youâ€™re looking for the most intellectually complex book in the world youâ€™re going to go away disappointed, but if youâ€™re just for a fun comic you could do a whole lot worse.
