Gunning For Hits #4, from Image, continues the spin.

Will Martin keep control of Blake, the veteran rock legend? Will his many spun lies get away from him, or circle back in for the kill?

How about Billy, the naive young guitar talent and his girlfriend, who are fighting between themselves? How about more drugs, more backstabbing and more of everything, coupled with more and more money?

It’s all fantastic, in my eyes and ears. I love reading this title, written by Jeff Rougvie and illustrated by Moritat. Casey Silver is on letters and colour, and bravo for that too.
This book hooks you big time and keeps the dialogue realistic, the drawings intuitive. It’s as if your own mind is creating the prompts for the next panel, the links are so natural. Great expressions, gestures, body language, and tones.

It’s naturally an unnatural world, this music-industry-obsessed comic, but imminently a Hit, don’t click past without looking!

Image Gunning For Hits #4, $3.99 for 22 pages of comic content, plus 8 pages of text. 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!!
