Proof #17

Written by Alex Grecian
Art by Kelly Tindall and Riley Rossmo

This issue of Proof borrows a page from the Elephantmen Guide to Ongoing Series, and has a done-in-one story (okay, technically two) about the Chupacabra, who was the antagonist in the first story arc. We see how she got from Mexico to Minnesota, and get some idea about how her presence in the Lodge is at the behest of Mi-Chen-Po, who is shaping up to be the Big Bad of this series. The back-up story features the Chupacabra meeting with Colonel Dachshund, and fitting him into her plans.

There are elements of both stories that don't really make sense to me. I don't understand how exactly the Chupacabra managed to get hired at the meat processing plant, or how her pet fairies were able to live in her purse, with it being full of iron horseshoes.

Other than that, this is a good issue, especially within the context of other recent issues, that are showing that something very important is coming up in this series. Tindall did a decent job of handling the art on the first story, but I still prefer Rossmo's look, as these are his characters that we are reading about.
