What’s to Love: Say Anything frontman Max Bemis writes a love letter to 1990s superhero comics in this tongue-in-cheek homage to the era, featuring the art stylings of Logan Faerber-reminiscent of works by Chip Zdarsky and Jeff Lemire. Much like Polarity, Oh, Killstrike is very personal to Bemis. Part twisted buddy comedy, part profound coming-of-age story, we couldn’t stop smiling when reading Oh, Killstrike.
What It Is: Jared, a new father, fears parenthood. An old comics fan, he turns to them for comfort. But when he unwittingly lets loose his favorite character, Killstrike-a single-minded, vengeance-loving anti-hero-onto the world, Jared must find a way to send him back before he harms all the people he loves the most. Collects the complete mini-series, issues #1-4.
