Zeek the Martian Geek Full Color Special by Brian Cattapan
Itâ€™s about time he put out a full color book! Donâ€™t get me wrong, usually I bitch about the cost of doing a mini in full color (to the artist and to the people who have to buy the books), but if thereâ€™s anything that screams for full color, itâ€™s Zeek and his wanderings. In this one we finally get to see Mars (and why Zeek never seems to go there), Zeek tries to meet some earth women (then settles for videos of Winona Ryder), and Brian fills in the rest with assorted one page strips. I didnâ€™t notice that the sampled page was one I used for an earlier issue, and Iâ€™m also not sure how much of this was already in older issues. It mostly seemed new to me, but I read many hundreds of these things every year and my memory for specifics is lousy. Either way, if you like his stuff, itâ€™s never looked better than this. You can even compare color kitty strip down here to the black and white version above if you donâ€™t believe me. Of course, if youâ€™re new to the Cattapan universe and just want to check him out, chances are youâ€™re better off working your way through some of the cheaper minis before buying something for $5, but Iâ€™m not the boss of you.
