Review: Bigfoot, Sword of the Earthman #5

bigfoot5This 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 #5 Castor is the one coming out on top of it all. He is the one to teach Bigfoot a lesson, to not stand around being idle. The unwanted friendship Bigfoot had with the ever-talking Castor reaches a defining moment and writer Henaman makes sure the point gets made and the startling finale will come soon start in #6.

I have to congratulate the ART team and especially the colorist Bonvillain who really made big steps throughout the series!

This series is not about re-inventing sword-wielding barbaric characters, nor is it about determining what Bigfoot is, nor is it a science fiction tale that just had to be told. This is a well-told story which is fun, entertaining, fantastical and just all-around great!

And this #5… it even tells a message. About right and wrong, about being idle and being a bully, about friendship and about overcoming your own lesser character features…

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".
