TODAY'S 'MAIN FEATURE':
Just a short blog post today, as I am busy at a new client's office since mid-week during the day...
So I'm going to tell you my thoughts on Jackrabbit #1 from Committed Comics!
First...Below is the press release for this TPB:"In a world gone mad, one hero, in a race against time… is really busy doing something else.
That leaves Jackrabbit to deal with the self-proclaimed menace of The Eight Fingers of Mischief.
Jackrabbit must run a gauntlet of hilarity to stop an octet of third-rate super villains from achieving their diabolical goal to cause some degree of discomfort and disruption to the world at large.
104 Full Color Pages - SRP $7.99!
Written by: Boe DuRansier
I have read individual issues of Jack Cole's Plastic Man and Ben Edlund's The Tick prior to reading this TPB.
But, I'm not going to compare this compilation to those issues, in case You haven't read them before.
Instead I'm going to mention that the character and the stories presented in this TPB are funny and entertaining in their presentation. I enjoy tongue in cheek humour.
Note: You do have to know some other comic book companies' characters to get the full effect of the parodies, though.
The writer / creator of this series was Bo DuRansier. (As shown illustrated to the left).
The penciled artwork by C Wilson Trull, (shown in illustrated form to the left), is clear, precise, and to the point. No wasted background shots, as the panels center on the characters and the action for the most part.
The lettering fits this style of presentation.
The coloring is vivid, but not over the top.
The only thing that could have been improved on, IMO, was the actual breaks between the stories. I only saw one clear break in the TPB, so this was a formatting issue for the TPB, not the actual stories themselves.
I liked the fact that there were additional pages added after the last story. There we find the 'origin' of the character in the creator's mind, and much more, including bios of Bo DuRansier, C Wilson Trull, and character sketches.
