From Dynamite comes The Switch: Electricia, written by Keith Champagne, and illustrated by Tom Nguyen, with colours by Robb Miller. And it kicks major butt.

This trade length tale kicks butt in its savage tone, that of “take no prisoners”. Its lead character, Electricia, tires of the supervillain life, and dons a new secret identity, The Switch. However, this change of heart does not go over well with her brutal boyfriend and Electricia’s sociopathic superpals.

The book is packed with pages of butt-kicking, mean-spirited and callous dialogue, but its one redeeming note of innocence is the character of Electricia. Thinly wrapped in a skimpy electrical bolt bikini-costume, Electricia does her best to redeem herself by helping people.

The artwork is well rendered and coloured. The figures are well posed and nicely proportioned.

This title is a difficult read unless you can revel in the cold and harsh vision of its creators. It’s hard-hitting and tense. Catch the sounds of bitter laughs echoing through its antics.

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!!
