Good Fun: Abyss: Family Issues: #2-3
Abyss: Family Issues #2-3
Kevin Rubio has written an enjoyable comic that both skewers and pays homage to super-heroes while telling a good story in its own right too.
I've reviewed issue one of this series, but have continued to enjoy it so I figured why not talk about the issues after? Why have I been liking this so much? Well, it gently mocks super-hero comics while also having a real love for them--a hard balance to pull off that Rubio is able to do admirably, and boy is this series funny. That's right, funny. Too often super-hero comics seem to get dragged down into being depressing and overly-serious, and while this comic does have its straight-faced moments, it isn't afraid to crack a whole bunch of jokes and point out the absurdity of a world where good guys and bad guys fly around fighting each other.
4 out of 5 stars.
