When superhero comics seem a bit jaded and have lost their lustre. Danger Club is a gleaming jewel and whose star is shining brighter still.
I think you know I’m only going to be saying only good things about this comic. It’s crazy how hard it can get to keep saying good things about something that’s this consistently great.
This issue was delayed by a few weeks due to the totally understandable circumstances of colourist Michael Drakes children getting hit by a car. Thankfully despite some serious injuries inflicted, they seem to be on the mend and I’d like to wish them a speedy recovery. The rest of the creative team could have gotten a fill-in colourist but thankfully they rallied around their talented colleague and held off.
Now back to the more mundane nature of this review.
This issue raises the stakes and brings us, the reader ever closer to a potentially massive climax. I’m continuously amazed at just how freaking good this comic is as a total package. Everything is just seamlessly professional, so slick and such a joy to read. After each issue comes out I re-read the previous ones and am so impressed at how it’s such a joy to read as a larger tale.
If you’re reading this as someone who’s curious about Danger Club be curious no-more and join this group of people who’re reading one of the best stories in any medium. Epic, exciting and exemplary, Danger Club raises the bar in a genre that looked to be tapped out years ago.
