Dry County issue 4, from Rich Tommaso and Image Comics, picks up the pace.

It’s a detective story. It’s the story of a Florida cartoonist, who finds a woman he likes. She disappears, and it seems her ex-boyfriend is involved in her disappearance. Or is he?

In this issue, the plot thickens. Lou Rossi, in imminent danger of becoming unemployed, enlists help from his friends to track down 4 mysterious blond interlopers. Who are they? And where is Janet?

In an issue with a ‘whodunnit and why’ plot, the questions are getting bigger. And that’s not all! Toward the end of this issue, there are full-page drawings. The panels get bigger, the story picks up speed, and we wonder what will become of this spaghetti-like plot.

Next issue is the final one in this Florida-based miniseries.

Image Comics, $3.99 for 28 pages of content. Mature Readers.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
