Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack continue their comic book related CIA narrative in Cover #6, from DC.

Our artist hero Max Field is attending a comic book convention where he gets to meet his torturer on even ground: an after-hours comic creator party. What does the conversation lead to? More violence? More torture? Manly hugs? You’ll just have to pick up this issue to find out.

It’s a vanity title, of course. I say ‘vanity’ because it is about a comic creator who is recruited to be a spy. He is wined, dined and punched unconscious. But it’s about comics. They talk about comic books IN a comic book, how cool.

This book is sumptuous to look at; the chameleon-like visual work by Mack nicely dovetails with the written content to create a very unique read. It’s about spies, it’s about comic nerds and it’s about time to check out this title!

DC Comics, Jinxworld, Cover #6, $3.99 for 28 pages of content, rated Mature.

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!!
