Four Eyes #3

Written by Joe Kelly
Art by Max Fiumara

I've been enjoying the inventiveness of Kelly's Four Eyes. It's a story of a young boy whose father was killed trying to capture a dragon for an illegal dragon-fighting ring, operating during the Depression. Enrico has now gained employment with his father's boss, and in this issue, is used on his first hunt as bait.

The visuals in this book are just as inventive as the story, as Fiumara portrays not just the dragons, but the techniques and tools used in the hunt.

The cliffhanger ending hints at the eventual status quo for this book, as it begins to take shape as the type of comic I thought it was going to be - only better.
