Review: Puppet Master Curtain Call #2
This issue opens with our puppets in combat mode and they mean business. The puppet master is trying his best to transform Anthony. Anthony is fighting the transformation and is encouraged to fight on by his friends in the face of giving up. Anapa is determined to return to earth at all costs. The buildup is tense, and our heroes are seemingly doomed to transform. It’s great action as only Actionlab can deliver.
Gabborin keeps the pace pulse-pounding in a race against time with the whole world in the balance. He brings the fight into our protagonist’s mind, shades of Freddie Kruger in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. And we get to see more of our hero and his courage then we’d ever seen before. It’s great stuff.
Daniel J. Logan is the right artist to craft this tale into comic book form. His puppets are varied and diverse. He shows them at their most evil. The fight between a giant puppet and the creature that Anthony is turning into is the highlight of this issue and its image will stay in the readers mind long after they have shut the pages to this issue. Fine art indeed
This chapter delivers on the action once again and I liked the chemistry between Anthony and Andre. These two know how to parlay their fears into action, the feeling of helplessness in the face of defiance gives this issue the gravitas needed for he final confrontation. The climax is appropriately gory, and the issue ends with the puppet master attempting to…be continued.
