Review: Bigfoot, Sword of the Earthman #3 (of 6)

bigfoot3This is not going to be the story of how Bigfoot became a myth on Earth. It will eventually “be the story of how Bigfoot became a legend of the stars” once the six-issue series has been completed.

Bigfoot – Sword of the Earth-man is a series which revolves around a hairy Earth-man´s quest for freedom and his fight against slavery, as he and many others are being held captive on a barbarian and all/together alien planet.

Bigfoot has formed an alliance with a little alien fellow called Castor, or rather the scribe Castor keeps following Bigfoot as he does what he does, without explanation but with massive decisive power and abundance of mayhem…

In this third instalment the odd two-some are trapped inside the under-earth hive led by Malona the Damned, queen of the moth-vampires, whose tale of deception heralded an age of darkness for her people. Malona propagates that Bigfoot is the one who must be her King to finally break the curse and set her legion of eerie offspring free from darkness, to take over the realm. Bigfoot is Bigfoot and without further due he makes his own stand, while Castor cannot do anything but accompany him, or be dealt with in very same fashion.

Writer Henaman may have made the name of the book resound one of the greatest mysteries of Earth, but he makes the barbarian world and its stories -as told by Castor- the true centrepiece ánd masterpiece of this tale. Each tale could easily spin off into a complete new series as new concepts, new characters and more are most likely buzzing inside Henaman’s mind.

Artist Taylor with colorist Bonvillain makes this Independent tale hit home with more then adequate artwork to support the alien framework.

This series deserves a much bigger audience then it must be getting now, so if you somehow are able to make yourself heard in the comic book business or in the retail stores: do not hesitate! Brewhouse Comics deserves your dedication.

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
